LONDON — The Duchess of Cambridge has resumed her royal duties after spending more than two months out of the public eye while suffering from acute morning sickness.

Kate and her husband Prince William welcomed the president of Singapore to London at the start of a state visit Tuesday. She greeted President Tony Tan and his wife Mary at the Royal Garden Hotel and told them "I've been looking forward to getting out of the house, that's for sure."

She plans to attend the Wildlife Photographer of the Year awards gala Tuesday night at the National History Museum.
