After enjoying the privileges that come with private healthcare, Kate Middleton has been released from hospital after suffering from severe morning sickness, The Guardian reports. She was admitted to hospital on Monday afternoon after becoming unwell at her parents' Berkshire home.

Smiling and assuring various journalists that she's feeling "much better", her and hubby Prince William left King Edward VII private hospital in London as they head to Kensington Palace so Kate can have a rest. The general feeling from the general public is relief, after the initial elation following the news of a new royal baby. Asked about the prospect of becoming a grandfather, Prince Charles said: "I'm thrilled, marvellous. It's a very nice thought to become a grandfather in my old age." He added: "I'm very glad my daughter-in-law is getting better, thank goodness."

Not everyone has been so forthcoming with messages of warmth for the royal couple in light of their news. Noel Gallagher; another national treasure - albeit for different reasons - showed air of nonchalance when probed on the subject at a press conference. "Well, they haven't become parents yet, have they?" he said when asked for a message of congratulations. "They're not the first people in the country to have a child, are they? I've got three so... you know."
