I would never wish this on anybody. Throwing up 24/7 for nine months is the worst. There are people posting on other sites with the story, making the comments about eat a cracker it'll help, seriously have no clue how hard it is to deal with hyperemeis.

A teaspoon of water, would have me throwing up on an already empty stomach. There would be nothing in my stomach, but I would dry heave for a half hour. So drained from it, I'd crawl on my hands and knees back to bed.

Friends and family couldn't understand how, I lost weight during the pregnancy. Like you, the day after I gave birth, I was 25 lbs lighter than the day I found out I was pregnant - was in the ER hooked up to an IV for dehydration.

To be called a princess, you must be a princess in your own right (by birth).

Technically, someone who has married a prince is not "Princess Diana", but rather "Princess Charles"
It sounds funny, but you take on "princess" with your husband's name on it, because you are only a princess because of his title. You can look this up online. That's what I did. lol
So Kate is "Princess William", but of course no one is going to call her that, because they just don't do that.
Rather than being called something as cumbersome and odd sounding as "Princess William", I'm sure she would rather go by the title the Queen gave her, Duchess of Cambridge.

I don't think Kate can afford to lose 25 pounds. Of course that isn't good for any person, but Kate is already extremely thin, isn't she?

The rules of secession were changed - the paperwork simply isn't through, but as I understood it, the agreement is the official date of the change and it was like last year some time. Before the Jubilee, anyway, I think. Hence it's in effect.

Her name is Kate Middleton. Her title is HRH Duchess of Cambridge.

As I understand it, nothing has been changed, since it has not been approved by Parliament, yet.

Nope. Since she is married (and took her husband's name) her name (if someone wants to use a last name is Kate Mountbatten-Windsor. However, as a PP mentioned, titled British royals, officially, have no surname.

Wrong on the first part too. The change has to go through, not just the British Parliament, but, likely, Parliaments on the Commonwealth countries (it is possible that some countries don't require this, but I know that Canada requires a unanimous vote from all provinces for changes to the King/Queen). At this point, they aren't even sure exactly which bits of legislation would need to be changed. Our Prime Minister (and, I believe, all other Commonwealth PMs) have agreed, in principle, to the change.

I don't know that she took his name, as I've not heard her referred to with any last name but Middleton.

Personally, I know her name is actually Middleton, so that's what I'd go with were I not somehow addressing her by title, heh. Regardless, I don't recall any official announcement that she was renouncing her own last name so...

As far as the secession, as two people disagreed I went to look and found the NYT says (from last year) -

Quote:
The 16 countries that recognize the British monarch as head of state struck a historic blow for women’s rights on Friday, abolishing male precedence in the order of succession to the throne...

The new succession rule will come into play with William’s children...

After a series of unsuccessful attempts in Britain’s Parliament to change the succession rules in recent years, the Cameron government, in office 18 months, put its weight fully behind the changes, and court officials said Queen Elizabeth was strongly supportive. Nearing the end of a 10-day trip to Australia that has drawn large crowds, she was in Perth in her capacity as head of the Commonwealth when the announcement was made.

The change will go into effect when the Parliaments (that require it) of the countries approve it. Until then, nothing has changed.

Girls born to members of the Royal Family are to be given equal rights with boys in the succession to the throne as centuries-old rules were overturned today.

As the historic changes to the monarchy were agreed, the Queen, at the Commonwealth summit in Perth, Australia, hailed the power of women to change the world.

The reforms mean the if the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's first child is a girl, she will take precedence over any younger brothers in the order of succession.
Reform: The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's first born child will inherit the thrown after David Cameron struck a deal with Commonwealth leaders to end the rule that the first-born male takes the thrown

The Times, the BBC, disagree and note the change official as of last year's agreement - as noted in the article.

Although U.K. legislation has not yet been passed to change the existing succession laws, in May the queen confirmed at the opening of Parliament that the British government would work with commonwealth countries to bring in a new royal succession law.
Quote:
U.K. legislation will be introduced once 14 of the 16 commonwealth nations have agreed to change their laws.

The official announcement, as far as the palace was concerned, was the announcement that her title was Duchess of Cambridge.

Were she to have retained her last name, that would have been announced.
