The royal couple posed for engagement photos in 2010.

Dad-to-be Prince William made his first public appearance since his wife Kate Middleton was released from the hospital after a four-day stay because of hyperemesis gravidarum, a severe morning sickness. And he's talking about how his wife's sickness is not limited to the morning.

He attended the Winter Whites Gala in London on Saturday. It was there that he told Michael O'Higgins, former chairman of homeless charity Centrepoint (which the gala benefited), "They shouldn't call it morning sickness, as it's a day and all-night sickness, reports

Middleton was feeling so sick yesterday that Prince William canceled his appearance at the British Military Tournament to be by her side, reports E! News.

But don't expect regular updates from the palace about her condition. That's because a spokesperson for the royal couple issued this statement to "It is well known that hyperemesis gravidarum often recurs and, until further notice, to allow the Duchess a degree of privacy during her pregnancy, we do not intend to offer regular condition checks or advise of routine developments associated with it."
