The Duchess of Cambridge has remained out of the public eye since the start of September when it was announced that Kate and her husband Prince William are expecting their second child.
Unfortunately, the duchess is once again suffering from hyperemesis gravidarium, an extreme form of sickness during pregnancy.
The same illness saw her briefly hospitalised during her first pregnancy with Prince George.
Kate's condition means she's been forced to cancel a string of planned public engagements, including a visit to Malta earlier this month which would have been her first royal overseas solo engagement.
According to People magazine, the palace is monitoring the poorly duchess on a "day by day basis" but she could resume public engagements and work from October onwards.
A source said: "There are engagements she would like to do over the coming months but they are being reviewed daily."
This would be good news for Kate as just last week her husband was quoted as saying his pregnant wife is feeling "so so" as she battles her sickness.
William stepped in to travel to Malta in Kate's absence where he was inundated with well wishes for his wife. "Fingers crossed she'll be better soon," he told one well wisher.
Kate is currently being treated by doctors at Kensington Palace.
