Jessica Hay, the friend of Kate Middleton the Duchess of Cambridge, who rightly predicted the royal pregnancy, has been speaking about the royal's eating habits following severe morning sickness and claims she's using hypnotherapy to regain a healthy appetite.
The royal couple announced in December that they were expecting their first child, but the news was blighted by Kate's illness which forced her to spend three night in hospital. Hay, who first revealed in November that the Duchess was expecting reportedly told Australian magazine, New Idea exactly how Kate's getting over her pregnancy problems.
“[Kate] still looks at food and feels nauseous,” she claims. “She finds it very hard to eat a full meal and gets full very quickly,”
According to Jessica, husband Prince William suggested his wife try hypnotherapy to help with her eating.
“The hypnotherapy is taking away any negative thoughts connected with food from the morning sickness,” she said, “and replacing them with cravings for healthy, nutritious food.”
Despite the issues, Hay claims, “All in all, Catherine’s very happy."
“With so much family around her and William, they’re starting to enjoy the pregnancy after such a traumatic start.”

The Palace confirmed last week that the royal baby is due in July and that the Duchess' health is improving daily.
She made her first public appearance of 2013 just over a week ago when she went to the National Portrait Gallery for a private viewing of her first official portrait.
