Kensington Palace announced today that Princess of Wales, Kate Middleton has undergone a planned abdominal surgery at The London Clinic. The 42-year-old princess was admitted to the hospital yesterday and the palace confirmed that the surgery was successful. However, she is expected to remain in the hospital for 10 to 14 days to recover.
In an official statement, the palace said, "Her Royal Highness The Princess of Wales was admitted to The London Clinic yesterday for planned abdominal surgery. The surgery was successful, and it is expected that she will remain in the hospital for ten to fourteen days, before returning home to continue her recovery."
The announcement has raised questions about the nature of the surgery and its impact on Princess Kate's public engagements. The palace clarified that based on current medical advice, she is unlikely to return to public duties until after Easter. It was also confirmed that the condition for which she underwent surgery is not cancerous, as reported by UK media.
Princess Kate expressed her regrets for any upcoming engagements that had to be postponed, and the palace shared her hope that the public would understand her desire to maintain normalcy for her children, emphasizing her wish for the privacy of her personal medical information.
The palace stated that updates on Princess Kate's progress will only be provided when there is significant new information to share. The media reports, citing royal sources, suggested that Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, will be supporting his wife during her recovery while fulfilling his royal duties.
Prince William was last seen with Kate Middleton on Christmas in Sandringham alongside their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis and is reportedly planning to postpone several engagements. However, he is expected to continue his royal duties and will remain by Princess Kate's side throughout the recovery process.
Kensington Palace did not provide specific details regarding the nature of the surgery or the underlying condition to address. However, the public awaits further updates on the princess's health.
Well-wishers are sending messages of support to the royal couple during this challenging time. The palace has assured the public that any significant developments in Princess Kate's recovery will be communicated promptly.
