Kate Middleton had a planned stomach operation at a private hospital in London, Kensington Palace confirmed on Wednesday.
The procedure went well, and the Princess of Wales will now spend ten to fourteen days in the hospital before probably returning to her royal duties after Easter.
Royal admirers are concerned for the Princess of Wales’ health in light of the shocking news. After Kensington Palace announced the outcome of the successful stomach surgery, a number of media sources carried stories about the princess’s alleged recovery.
Kate will now need to take it easy and recuperate for a while. However, the length of her hospital stay may unfortunately indicate that the upcoming months would be quite difficult.
The statement sent by Kensington Palace on Wednesday came as a bombshell to both the royal community and the general public. After a scheduled stomach operation, Princess of Wales is expected to stay at the exclusive London Clinic for 10 to fourteen days. It is also “unlikely” that she will resume her public activities until after Easter.
Kate, meanwhile, expressed regret for delaying the planned celebrations.
“Her Royal Highness Yesterday, The London Clinic admitted The Princess of Wales for her scheduled abdominal surgery. After a successful surgery, she should stay in the hospital for ten to fourteen days before going home to continue her recuperation. She is unlikely to resume her public duties until after Easter, according to the current medical advice, Kensington Palace stated in a statement posted on its social media platforms.
“The Princess of Wales is grateful for the attention that her remarks will bring. She wishes for the public to comprehend her wish to keep her children’s lives as normal as possible and her desire for her private medical records to remain that way.
“Kensington Palace will, therefore, only provide updates on Her Royal Highness’ progress when there is significant new information to share,” the statement said in continuation. The Princess of Wales regrets having to cancel her planned engagements and extends her condolences to everyone involved. She is eager to get as many back as she can, as quickly as she can.
Many royal admirers expressed their worries and best wishes for Kate’s quick recovery on social media.
“I hope Catherine feels better soon. She worries about everything around her, even when she isn’t feeling well. You look after yourself, and I’m sure that everyone knows that protecting your privacy for your kids is important. One wrote, “They would desire the same for their own.”
“Prayers for a speedy and full recovery for the Princess of Wales and her lovely family during this trying time,” said another.
“My thoughts and prayers are with her and her whole family,” remarked the third person.
Another said, “I hope she’s okay, 14 days is a long stay.”
Fortunately, Kate’s scheduled abdominal surgery is reported to be necessary for a “non-cancerous” reason. Furthermore, according to sources on Thursday, the princess is doing “well.”
Following her medical discharge, Kate Middleton is anticipated to recuperate in her Windsor family home, where she and Prince William moved from London in 2022.
It’s anticipated that Prince William would reduce his public appearances while Kate heals. Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, the couple’s three children, will benefit from this in more ways than one.
William won’t be performing his formal duties while Kate is at the hospital. The Prince of Wales was scheduled to pay British troops abroad, but the “top-secret” visit has been rescheduled, according to The Sun. The couple’s scheduled trip to Italy, including its capital city of Rome, where they could have had the opportunity to meet the Pope, has also been cancelled.
