Where is Kate Middleton?

It’s the question every concerned royal family fan is asking over and over again. As days turn into weeks turn into months, very little is being said about Kate’s condition after her surprise “abdominal surgery.”

While the palace hinted that they wouldn’t be releasing information unless necessary, fears are growing with every new development.

Prince William is canceling events, no one has seen the kiddos, and there’s even a report that Kate has reached out to Meghan Markle to make amends.

So what is going on? And really, where is Kate Middleton?!

Kate’s Disapperance – Followed By Prince Williams

On the morning of February 27, Prince William canceled an appearance at a memorial for his late godfather, King Constantine II of Greece, citing a “personal matter” for the last-minute change to his schedule.

This set into motion panic and confusion from all around the world.

Because anything any member of the Royal Family does or says is likely to create an uproar?

Yes, partially.

But perhaps more importantly, his wife Kate Middleton underwent abdominal surgery on January 16. Many observers were curious and concerned that her husband canceled this appearance because something had gone wrong in her recovery.

Kensington Palace jumped in to assuage these concerns in a message that seemed comforting at the time.

Where Is Kate Middleton?

Simply put, the “Princess of Wales, who is recovering from abdominal surgery, continues to be doing well,” the Palace said via statement.

The message was dropped about a month after Middleton was released from a two-week hospital stay following the aforementioned procedure.

At the time, the palace shared that Kate had “returned home to Windsor to continue her recovery from surgery. She is making good progress.”

They also explained then that the Princess would likely not return to royal duties until Easter, which is at the end of March.

We were never told the medical condition that prompted this surgery, but we suppose even Kate Middleton is entitled to a bit of privacy, you know?

Kate Middleton Rep Scrambles to Torpedo Conspiracy Theories

Despite assurances from the palace, all the chatter regarding Kate Middleton and her condition refuses to go away.

Some rumors started swirling that she was in a coma; other reports drudged up cruel speculation about eating disorders.

In order to once again try to quell concern about Kate and to put to rest any sort of conspiracy theories regarding what the heck is going on , a spokesperson for the Princess Kate said on February 29:

“We were very clear from the outset that the Princess of Wales was out until after Easter and Kensington Palace would only be providing updates when something was significant.”

A source close to Middleton spoke to People Magazine and did verify that there was a “serious” nature to this surgery, but also added:

“She is in great hands and will have lots of care and support at home and is a fit young woman. I am sure she will bounce back.”

Prince William, meanwhile, had planned to cut back his own role within his famous family to help his spouse recuperate… but then King Charles was diagnosed with cancer.

As a result, Royal correspondent Sharon Carpenter told E! News on February 6:

“We expect to see Prince William, if needed, obviously step up on behalf of his father when it comes to certain engagements.”

A day later, the Prince of Wales attended a charity dinner and told those in attendance, in regard to both his dad and his wife:

“I’d like to take this opportunity to say thank you for the kind messages of support.”

Kate’s Photo-gate

Concern reached a fever pitch on March 10, when a doctored photo of Kate appeared on the Waleses’ official Instagram page in celebration of Mother’s Day in the UK.

In a statement released the following day, Kate admitted that the pic was a fake.

But neither she nor the royals have given any reason as to why such a ruse was necessary.

And the days since have only given us more cause for concern.

The Mystery Deepens

Prince William has continued to make public appearances without Kate by his side, and despite this conspicuous absence, the royals have yet to offer any new updates about Kate’s condition.

On social media, he most common theories all have to do with Kate’s health.

But there are many who believe that there might be a different explanation for the Princess of Wales’ sudden reluctance to appear in public — one that would not reflect well on William.

The Rose Hanbury Rumors Resurface

Back in 2019, it was rumored that William had carried on an affair with Lady Rose Hanbury, a noblewoman who lives near the Waleses’ country home in Norfolk, England.

Some have even gone so far as to suggest that William might be the father of Rose’s youngest daughter.

There’s no compelling evidence to support that theory, but many royal watchers have become convinced that Kate has bid farewell to royal life because she’s furious about William’s infidelity.

Again, it’s quite a stretch, but it’s not hard to see why so many might be willing to believe such wild rumors at the moment.

After all, it’s not every day that a member of the royal family disappears for nearly three months with no explanation.

The royals are likely aware that the speculation will continue until they offer something in the way of concrete information about Kate.

But despite that knowledge, they’re keeping a tight lid on this situation — and frankly, that’s got us concerned.

We’ll have further updates on this developing story as new information becomes available.
