Ever since it was revealed two weeks ago that Kate Middleton was hospitalized, it appears like the media has been obsessed with the story.
The sudden admission of the Princess of Wales for abdominal surgery was bound to pique the curiosity of royal fans and detractors alike.
It makes sense that people were worried about the seriousness of Kate’s health condition, especially after Kensington Palace confirmed that she would be hospitalized for up to two weeks after her surgery and would not be participating in any royal engagements until after Easter.
It was surprising to learn that some people did not know the specifics of Kate’s procedure, in addition to the broader public. According to recent allegations, the 42-year-old completely concealed her actions from those closest to her, including from those in her inner circle.
Rumor has it that the pair decided to take this difficult step to protect Kate’s privacy. Naturally, this kept her closest confidants and staff members in the dark about her illness.
Kensington Palace released an update earlier this week confirming Kate’s hospital discharge. She can now go back to Adelaide Cottage, her family’s Windsor residence.
After undergoing surgery, the Princess of Wales has returned to Windsor to continue her recuperation. In a statement released earlier this morning, the Palace voiced confidence regarding her progress.
“The entire team at The London Clinic, especially the dedicated nursing staff, has our sincere gratitude for the wonderful care that the Prince and Princess have received.”
Some sources suggest that the princess’s road to recovery is still rather difficult. Now that his wife has come home from the hospital, Prince William might be able to get back to his formal duties, but Kate won’t be able to work until after Easter.
Although there isn’t much information available at this time regarding the nature of Kate’s surgery, Page Six has speculated that she may decide in the future to provide more details.
People Magazine stated that Kate’s condition was not life-threatening at the time she was admitted to the hospital. The princess’s life, according to the Spanish tabloid Marca, might have been in jeopardy.
The good news is that Kate Middleton is back home safely and can now concentrate on her recuperation in the comforts of her own home.
