Duchess Kate Middleton was very ill with severe morning sickness in the early weeks of her pregnancy leading to her being hospitalized.

And although she's feeling a bit better, she is still having trouble eating and has a much reduced appetite which has led her to seek help from a hypnotherapist.

The 31-year-old wife of Prince William "still looks at food and feels nauseous," her friend Jessica Hay has told Australia's New Idea magazine.

Kate is said to be suffering from "that feeling you have when you've had food poisoning and your stomach's shrunk."

"She finds it very hard to eat a full meal and gets full very quickly," Jessica added.

"The hypnotherapy is taking away any negative thoughts connected with food from the morning sickness and replacing them with cravings for healthy, nutritious food."

And it's apparently working! Kate is now noshing down on avocados, berries, broccoli, oatmeal and smoothies. And she was also seen going for a latte and a cookie at her local Starbucks near Kensington Palace recently.

"All in all, Catherine's very happy," Jessica shared. "With so much family around her and William, they're starting to enjoy the pregnancy after such a traumatic start.
