Ginger is a well-known natural remedy for treating nausea and according to Prince William, his pregnant wife Kate has been trying it in a bid to combat her severe morning sickness.

Speaking to guests at a charity reception and awards ceremony for the Metropolitan and City Police Orphans Fund at London’s Guildhall on Wednesday, the prince said Kate was “feeling better,” but that the ginger hadn’t helped much.

When 98-year-old Iris Orrell asked after Kate, who is expecting their third child, William replied: “She’s been feeling better, thank you,” Hello! reports.

Iris told William that she had also suffered from severe morning sickness when she was pregnant. She added that to alleviate the nausea, she was advised to eat dry biscuits.

William said Kate had tried the remedy, but without much success. “Ginger biscuits,” he said, adding: “But there’s not much ginger can do to stop that. We’ve done all that.”

During the event, William presented a series of awards and scholarships to young people who are benefiting from the charity, which provides financial support to children of officers who have died in service or after service. The Fund, which began as an orphanage in 1870 and has supported over 15,000 children since then, is the oldest police charity in the world. William was named the patron of the organisation in January 2017.
