PRINCE William's pregnant wife Kate suffered a setback in her recovery from severe pregnancy sickness when her condition deteriorated yesterday.

The Duchess of Cambridge, who spent three nights in hospital last week being treated for hyperemesis gravidarum, took a turn for the worse as she spent the weekend at Kensington Palace.

Prince William pulled out of an official engagement at the British Military Tournament at Earl's Court, London, last night, so he could look after his wife.

The news came amid a row over the apparent suicide of a nurse between the hospital that treated the Duchess and an Australian radio station that made a hoax call of which the nurse was a victim.

The King Edward VII Hospital had made it clear that it blamed 2Day FM for Jacintha Saldanha's death, but the owners of the radio station initially said the hospital should examine its own role in the tragedy. They suggested that Saldanha may have been suffering from depression, a claim denied by her family and friends.

However, Reuters reported last night that the radio station said it would review its procedures after the nurse's apparent suicide.

The two presenters who made the call will be questioned by Australian police following a request by Scotland Yard, which will gather evidence for an inquest into Saldanha's death. The station's owners pulled presenters Michael Christian and Mel Greig off the air as leading companies cancelled advertising.

The station's parent company, Southern Cross Austereo, said it would fully cooperate in any investigations.
