Should Kate love the Ginger?

Hyperemesis gravidarum is not a condition fit for a Princess.  Morning sickness can be debilitating and frankly it’s downright poorly named.  Through personal experience I know it can last all day, every day until you find relief in one small thing.  Mine was ginger.  In the form of ginger nuts to be exact.  Fingers crossed Wills or Liz is a dab hand with a rolling pin and can knock up a quick ginger or two for her. Cutting them with a crown shaped cutter optional.

Move over Harry, there’s a new ginger in town.
