Kensington Palace's Update On Kate Middleton’s Health

Earlier this year, the Princess of Wales underwent surgery, recovering in the hospital before returning home.

In January, Kensington Palace shared that Kate Middleton, the Princess of Wales, had a successful abdominal surgery. 

Not much else was revealed about her condition as the Princess wished to keep her medical information private. In a statement given to People, she said she wanted to provide as much normality as possible for her children.

Now a month later, Middleton has been recovering back home in Windsor, out of the public eye. However, a palace aide has provided an update, saying that “The Princess of Wales continues to be doing well,” according to Mirror.

The Princess’ recovery will likely take a couple of months. This means she isn’t due to return to her royal duties until after Easter.

The update came attached with the news that Prince William pulled out of attending King Constantine’s memorial service at St. George’s Chapel. Prince William was to deliver a reading during the service, as the late King was also his godfather.

The palace assures that while Prince William’s absence was due to personal matters, they are not in relation to the Princess’ health. 

Meanwhile, King Charles was also unable to attend as he is not carrying out public duties while receiving cancer treatment. Queen Camilla led the British royals at the service for the late King of Greece.

A Solid Royal Family Unit

Prince William showed that his family comes first when he also stepped back from the public eye while Princess Kate was undergoing surgery. The royal parents wanted to keep a normal schedule for their children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.

Robert Hardman, author of The Making of a King, told People that “So much of what they do with those kids is about normalizing life and not making them feel like they are in a special gilded cage.”

The couple’s priority is to make the transition into royal duties as unobtrusive and normal as possible for their children. It also seems that they want to give their children more agency than what past royals may have experienced.

“Before he was even made a page at the coronation, William and Catherine wanted to ask him if he felt comfortable about it because he was clearly the youngest. It turned out he was keen,” a source from Kensington Palace shared in Hardman’s book.

Amid King Charles’ cancer diagnosis and Princess Kate’s recovery, Prince William continues to be the face of the royal family alongside Queen Camilla. “It is hard with Kate being ill as well, but he will step up,” a royal source told People.
