Torn between her mum and her Royal duties, Kate faces her most stressful Christmas yet

The pregnant Duchess of Cambridge has made an emotional plea to Prince William, saying: ‘I can’t cope with a Royal Christmas.’

Kate’s facing mounting stress as she battles extreme morning sickness – and told Wills she’d rather be at home with her mum Carole over the festive season, something forbidden by Royal tradition.

She also fears her illness could mean she has to live apart from Wills, 30, during her pregnancy as he serves with the RAF in Anglesey, Wales, and she stays near doctors in London.

‘She’s delighted to be pregnant of course,’ says our royal source. ‘But there’s lots on her mind.’
