Rest at ease: all signs of the Princess’ progress point to a full recovery for the royal!

What Surgery Did Kate Middleton Have?

It turns out, while the news was a surprise to royal family fans, Kate’s visit to the hospital was on her family’s radar.

In the royal statement, shared on their Instagram page, the family revealed she was admitted for a “planned abdominal surgery” at the London Clinic.

While the surgery was “successful,” she will have to remain in the hospital for 10 to 14 days before “returning home to continue her recovery.”

The statement did not explain why the surgery was actually needed, opting to keep that information “private”, but the Princess’ recovery does sound like it will be extensive.

The royals add that she’ll “unlikely return to public duties until after Easter.”

As expected, Prince William is by his wife Kate Middleton’s side after she was admitted to the hospital for surgery.

A statement released from Kensington Palace on Wednesday confirmed that the Princess of Wales, 42, went to a medical facility the night before.

The following morning, the Prince of Wales was photographed driving himself to the hospital to visit the Princess, as she recovers from abdominal surgery.

William was photographed leaving the private London Clinic at around 12:35 p.m. local time on Thursday, according to U.K. newspaper The Telegraph

Following this dutiful husband visit, rumors spread that Harry warned William that he was marrying Kate for the wrong reasons. Doesn’t seem that way to us.

“The Princess of Wales appreciates the interest this statement will generate,” the message went on, before the royal family asked for privacy — for Kate and her children.

“She hopes that the public will understand her desire to maintain as much normality for her children as possible.”

The Duchess of Cambridge added that she “wishes to apologize to all those concerned for the fact that she has to postpone her upcoming engagements.”

“She looks forward to reinstating as many as possible, as soon as possible,” the statement concluded.

The Palace then noted that they will “only provide updates” on Middleton’s progress “when there is significant new information to share.”

“The physical therapists are amazing,” the source told People. “Helping you recover and get back on your feet. After abdominal surgery, you need a lot of patience, and it’s a bit scary at first.”

When the Princess is cleared to come home, she’ll return to their royal home Adelaide Cottage in Windsor.

Thankfully, the cottage is a short car ride away from her immediate family, like her siblings Pippa and James, and her parents, who helping in taking care of the kids.

“Her parents are an enduring factor in the upbringing of their grandchildren,” a palace insider added to People. “And they will be a reassuring presence when she goes back to Windsor to recuperate.”

Following the news of Princess Kate’s abdominal surgery, Buckingham Palace announced that the head of the royal family would also be hospitalized soon after.

Charles is set to undergo a “corrective procedure” for an enlarged prostate, the palace confirmed.

Thankfully, his condition is benign, according to the Associated Press, but that the sovereign will be taking “a short period of recuperation” in order to recover and rest.

According to the reports, the King visited the Princess of Wales on Friday, January 26, ten days after she was admitted herself and hours before his own surgery.

Charles was photographed with wife Queen Camilla arriving at the London Clinic, and made the stop in to see the Princess before being full admitted himself.

Sounds like Prince William is going to have his hands full in the coming weeks, with both his father and wife needing special attention!
