Pregnant Kate Middleton Cancels Appearance Due to Sickness
Kate Middleton has released a statement after she was forced to cancel an appearance at the opening of the Clore Art Room at London’s Barlby Primary School on Wednesday (October 1) as part of the Clore Duffield Foundation’s 50th anniversary year.
“I wanted to share my congratulations with you all for the launch of the new Clore Art Room,” the Duchess of Cambridge wrote. “I was looking forward to joining you all for this particularly special day as part of The Clore Duffield Foundation’s 50th Anniversary year.”
She continued, “I am truly sorry that I cannot be with you all today as you celebrate this milestone. As Patron of The Art Room I feel great pride to see the work that the charity is doing. Vulnerable children flourish in the safe havens that The Art Room provides; this highlights just how important it is to support children at a time when they most need help and support.”
A source close to the family tells People that Kate “continues to be unwell and we are keeping things under review.”

This partnership with The Clore Duffield Foundation is a significant moment for The Art Room. As I cannot thank the Foundation in person today, I would like to extend my thanks to Dame Vivien and her Foundation for supporting a cause so close to my heart, and making such a transformational facility available to the children of Barlby Primary School.
It really is hugely exciting to look to a future with even more Art Rooms, where the lives of many more challenging and vulnerable children will be transformed. I hope that you have a wonderful afternoon. My sincere apologies for not being able to join you but I hope that I will have an opportunity to visit Barlby and see the Clore Art Room soon.
