Kate Middleton looked like she was feeling much better during her first public appearance since being hospitalized for hyperemesis gravidarum, a severe form of morning sickness. She presented awards at the BBC Sports Personality of the Year, and if her pregnancy was making her feel under the weather, she showed no signs of it.

Wearing a green Alexander McQueen dress, Middleton looked stunning. It seems as though bed rest has done her well, and it’s reported that Middleton’s appearance at the show wasn’t decided until the last minute. She presented the Lifetime Achievement awards with David Beckham to athletes like Lord Seb Coe, Jessica Ennis and Bradley Wiggins.

If you had hoped Middleton would use the public podium to speak out about the death of receptionist Jacintha Saldanha, you’re out of luck. Middleton didn’t publicly speak during the show, though she did talk to the awards recipients. This appearance comes not long after British singer Morrissey said Middleton and the royal family are to blame for the prank call nurse taking her own life.
