Kate Middleton Is Being Body Shamed After Debuting Baby Bump

Earlier last week we reported that Kate Middleton had attended her first public event since announcing her pregnancy.

The event was held on World Mental Health Day and was held at Buckingham Palace.

It's no secret that Middleton has suffered from severe morning sickness with all three of her pregnancies now, but that didn't stop people from commenting on a photograph published on Instagram.

The photo, which clearly debuts a slight baby bump, was published on the Kensington Palace Instagram account.

After seeing Middleton's baby bump, some people commented that severe morning sickness isn't actually a condition and that Kate is malnourished and severely underweight.

Other fans came to Kate's rescue and defended her, saying it's very difficult to gain weight when you're constantly throwing up.

We think she looks great!

Their Royal Highnesses invited guests from across the country who work in leading mental health organisations. #WorldMentalHealthDay was the perfect opportunity to celebrate their work.
