Get the latest on the Princess of Wales’ health as we delve into updates on her well-being.
The Princess of Wales underwent a successful abdominal surgery, as revealed by Kensington Palace.
In an unexpected turn of events, it was disclosed just an hour later that King Charles was slated to attend the hospital the following week for treatment on an enlarged prostate.
Reported by The Independent, the future Queen is expected to spend an additional 10 to 14 days in the hospital before continuing her recovery at home.
It’s anticipated that Princess of Wales will take two to three months for recuperation, with a return to public duties not expected until after Easter.
As per The Independent, Prince William is expected to balance supporting his wife with caring for their children–Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.
The heir to the throne has already postponed several upcoming engagements, according to Daily Sabah.
According to People, a spokesperson shared, “The Princess of Wales appreciates the interest this statement will generate. She hopes that the public will understand her desire to maintain as much normality for her children as possible and her wish that her personal medical information remains private.”
Turning the Page
The Princess of Wales recently marked her 42nd birthday.
Opting for a private celebration, she received a special message from King Charles and Queen Camilla.
Westminster Abbey in London also joined the festivities, ringing its bells in honor of the royal’s birthday.
This tradition, however, has undergone changes due to financial challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Prior to 2020, the bells celebrated the birthdays of a dozen royals, as per People.
Queen Elizabeth, Prince Philip, and their four children–formerly and presently King Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew, and Prince Edward–were all accorded this honor, along with Charles’ spouse, Camilla. Prince William, Kate, and their trio of children concluded the roster.
The Princess of Wales is known for her active involvement in charitable initiatives.
