A pregnant Kate Middleton made her very first public appearance in London on Sunday after a brief hospital stay due to acute morning sickness.

Glowing in green, the Duchess of Cambridge presented two awards during the Sports Personality of the Year ceremony broadcast live in Britain. Kate appeared "healthy and strong," reports The Associated Press, as she bestowed the Lifetime Achievement Award to a British politician and former athlete Sebastian Coe, and the Sports Personality of the Year award to cyclist Bradley Wiggins.

The Duchess has cancelled several appearances since being released from the hospital on December 6 and is said to have been resting at home.

The gala was the first time Kate has been seen publicly since the apparent suicide of a nurse at King Edward VII Hospital.
