Kate Middleton Presents Wiggo With SPOTY Award

Duchess of Cambridge makes first public appearance since illness...

Kate Middleton has made her first public appearance since she was hospitalised with severe morning sickness, presenting Bradley Wiggins with the BBC's Sports Personality Of The Year award.

The Duchess of Cambridge wore an elegant, full-length green dress at the ExCel centre in London, where the annual sporty shindig took place - and said she was "very well" when asked about her health by host Gary Lineker.

The pregnant royal has not been seen in public since she left London's King Edward VII Hospital a week ago, having been treated for an acute form of morning sickness called hyperemesis gravidarum.

But the 30-year-old looked comfortable and relaxed on stage, despite admitting to Paralympian Martine Wright that she had found the experience "well scary".

As well as presenting Wiggo's award, K-Middy also presented Olympic Games organiser Lord Coe with a lifetime achievement award.

Jessica Ennis came second in the BBC phone vote, with Andy Murray in third.
