Close Call: Pregnant Kate Middleton Rushed to the Hospital!

Kate Middleton Hospitalized


Still seven weeks shy of her second baby’s due date, Kate Middleton was rushed to St. Mary’s Hospital, writhing in pain, in mid-February. According to a royal source, it was just early contractions that had the Duchess alarmed, but she was “frantic” and “doubled over in agony,” fearing for her unborn baby.

And despite a media blackout, (“No one was allowed to talk to the press in any capacity,” the source reports), Star has the inside details of the Duchess’ frightening pregnancy scare.

“At first, doctors thought she was in labor, but her contractions weren’t regular enough to warrant them preparing for birth,” the insider explains, adding that, while doctors couldn’t establish exactly what was wrong, they deemed it necessary to keep Kate in the hospital overnight for observation.

Less than 24 hours later, the duchess’ and her baby’s vitals had stabilized, and doctors gave her the all clear. Still, the incident put Kate on high-alert, and the royals have put St. Mary’s on standby in case of a premature delivery. “This scare made her realize she doesn’t want to take any changes,” the source reveals. “Everyone is on high alert for an early arrival.”
