Could Kate Middleton's Anti-Nausea Secret Cure Your Next Hangover?

Mama-to-be Kate Middleton probably skipped out on the bubbly this New Year's Eve, but apparently she's got a hangover remedy up her sleeve anyway. Which is useful, just in case you're still suffering — particularly now that you're back at work.
Sources reveal that the royal has been combatting nausea related to her gnarly case of hyperemesis gravadarum (a.k.a. really horrendous morning sickness) by nibbling on lavender shortbread biscuits.

It seems lavender has long been used to naturally relieve nausea, and in true royal form, KMid has found a suitably posh way to administer her dosage, munching on Camilla and Charles-approved shortbread sourced from Duchy Originals and Fortnum and Mason.
"A lot of women develop cravings during pregnancy and Kate is no exception," a source tells The Sun. "She has got a real taste for these biscuits. Lavender is said to have healing properties, so it is not such a wacky food to nibble on when you’re pregnant.”
Or, ahem, suffering a wicked hangover courtesy of some raucous celebrating. Has the duchess stumbled on the cure that will change the way you party (and recover) in 2013? Or should we stick to that old standard, a full English, a couple of paracetemol, and a pint of lager? (The Sun)
