The Hobbit UK film premiere suffers setback

Special guest set to miss

Peter Jackson's 'The Hobbit' will likely be missing a special guest of honour at Wednesday's premiere according to several reports.

Kate Middleton and Prince William were expected to attend this week's film premiere for 'The Hobbit' but Middleton has experienced renewed morning sickness and may have to return to hospital for treatment regarding dehydration. Bouts of nausea and vomiting have increased in recent days and the Duke recently pulled out of the British Military Tournament to stay close to the Duchess.

The UK premiere of 'The Hobbit' is scheduled to go ahead, but it is not confirmed whether the Prince and The Duchess will both cancel their appearance, however it is likely to be the case.

Just today Londoners were given a treat as they greeted Tom Cruise and the cast of 'Jack Reacher' at the World premiere in Leicester square.
