It seems that the newspapers have been fixated on the topic ever since Kate Middleton’s hospitalization was announced two weeks ago.
It was inevitable that the unexpected admission of the Princess of Wales for abdominal surgery would spark the interest of both royal enthusiasts and critics.
Considering the confirmation from Kensington Palace that Kate would be staying in the hospital for up to two weeks following her surgery, and that she wouldn’t be taking part in any royal engagements until after Easter, it’s understandable that people had concerns about the severity of Kate’s health issue.
Surprisingly, not only the general public, but also other individuals were unaware of the details of Kate’s procedure. Based on recent reports, the 42-year-old kept her inner-circle completely unaware, leaving those closest to her in the dark.
According to speculation, the couple made this difficult decision in order to safeguard Kate’s privacy. Naturally, this left her closest staff members and confidants completely clueless about her condition.
Earlier this week, Kensington Palace shared an update confirming Kate’s discharge from the hospital. She is now able to return to her family home at Adelaide Cottage in Windsor.
The Princess of Wales has arrived back at Windsor to continue her recovery after undergoing surgery. The Palace’s statement earlier this morning expressed optimism about her progress.
«The Prince and Princess would like to express their immense gratitude to the entire team at The London Clinic, particularly the devoted nursing staff, for the exceptional care they have received.»
There are reports indicating that the princess still has a challenging journey towards her recovery. Prince William may be able to resume his official responsibilities now that his wife has returned home from the hospital, but Kate will most certainly be unable to work until after Easter.
Page Six has reported that Kate might choose to provide more information about her surgery in the future, but currently, there isn’t much known about the specifics.
Around the time Kate was hospitalized, People Magazine said that her problem was not life-threatening. However, the Spanish newspaper Marca said they thought the princess’s life might have been in danger.
It’s great news that Kate Middleton has safely returned home and can now focus on her recovery in the comfort of her own surroundings.
