Meanwhile, Kate apologized for postponing upcoming events.

“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 she will remain in hospital for ten to fourteen days, before returning home to continue her recovery. Based on the current medical advice, she is unlikely to return to public duties until after Easter,” the statement from Kensington Palace on its social media pages.

“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.”

The statement continued: “Kensington Palace will, therefore, only provide updates on Her Royal Highness’ progress when there is significant new information to share. The Princess of Wales wishes to apologise to all those concerned for the fact she has to postpone her upcoming engagements. She looks forward to reinstating as many as possible, as soon as possible.”

On social media, many royal fans shared their concerns for Kate, wishing her a speedy recovery.

“Prayers for a successful recovery”
“Feel better soon, Catherine. Even while she’s not well, she’s worried about everything going on around her. You take care of you and I’m sure people understand the need to respect your privacy for your children. They would want the same for their own,” one wrote.

Another added: “Prayers for a successful recovery for the Princess of Wales and for her lovely family as they navigate this difficult time.”

A third said: “My thoughts and prayers are with her and her whole family.”

“14 days is a long stay, hope she’s ok,” another stated.

According to People Magazine sources, the reason for Kate’s planned abdominal surgery was “non-cancerous.”

Once discharged from the hospital, the news outlet reports, the Princess of Wales is expected to recover at her family home in Windsor, where she and Prince William relocated to in 2022 from Adelaide Cottage in London.

While Kate is recovering, it’s understood that Prince William will also cut down on his public engagements. This to better help take care of the couple’s three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.

During the time Kate is at the hospital, William will not be on official duty.

While William will take on more responsibility regarding looking after George, Charlotte, and Louis, he won’t do it alone.

William to take care of Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis – together with nanny
The prince and princess will, as they have for many years, get assistance from the children’s nanny, Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo.

Borrallo has been with William and Kate since 2014. She began caring for George when he was only eight months old.

“She is not married and doesn’t have a boyfriend, as her life is totally dedicated to the family she is working with. She is known for being totally professional – married to the job,” an insider told Hello Magazine.

Borrallo was trained at the prestigious Norland College in Bath. She makes all the decisions at home regarding the children, in keeping with William and Kate’s outlined wishes.

A royal insider previously said: “Maria is firm, but she never acts unilaterally with the children on discipline. Kate and William, along with Maria, are strict with the children but have this magic ability to appear not to be.”

Kate’s true feelings about hospitals
Kate has previously shared her thoughts on staying in hospitals, referring to them as not “places she wanted to hang around in.”

She spoke about the memories of extreme morning sickness after she gave birth to George.

“I think, yeah I did stay in hospital overnight, I remember it was one of the hottest days and night with huge thunderstorms so I didn’t get a huge amount of sleep, but George did which was really great,” the princess said.

“I was keen to get home because, for me, being in hospital, I had all the memories of being in hospital because of being sick so it wasn’t a place I wanted to hang around in. So, I was really desperate to get home and get back to normality,” she added.

This is a developing story. More to come…
