For those of you who (like us) have been hoping Duchess Catherine (a.ka. Kate Middleton) will start feeling better during her second pregnancy, it looks like she may have finally turned the corner.

A spokesperson from Kensington Palace told US Weekly that William and Kate should be attending an event to welcome President Tony Tan of Singapore and his wife to the U.K. on Oct. 21.

According to Victoria Murphy, the Daily Mail's royal reporter, it is not definite that Kate will be in attendance:

The royal couple met President Tan and his wife in 2012, when they travelled to Singapore for their Diamond Jubilee tour.

Kate and William are scheduled to welcome the guests at their hotel and travel with them to Kensington Palace, but will not be in attendance at the banquet that evening, according to the Telegraph.

Due to her hyperemesis gravidarum — an extreme form of morning sickness — Kate has had to cancel many official engagements since announcing her pregnancy on Sept. 8, including the opening ceremony of the Invictus Games (which was hosted by her brother-in-law Prince Harry), as well as what would have been her first official solo tour, to Malta.

No due date has been announced for the royal baby as of yet, as it's assumed Kate may not have passed the 12-week mark of her pregnancy yet.
