Prince William may have proven himself to be more of a white knight this morning.

Not long after the Duke of Cambridge paid a second visit to his pregnant and hospitalized Kate Middleton comes word direct from the palace itself that things are already looking up for the duchess.

"The Duchess of Cambridge is continuing to feel better," a rep for St. James's Palace said in a statement. "She and the duke are immensely grateful for the good wishes they have received."

But while the 30-year-old mother-to-be—currently on her second day under doctors' care after suffering from acute morning sickness—isn't quite back to her old self just yet.

"She will remain in hospital at present and will continue to be treated for hyperemesis gravidarum."

Upon her admittance to the private King Edward VII Hospital in central London yesterday, the palace confirmed that she was expected to remain in the facility for several days and has since canceled her planned royal engagements through the end of the week.
