Kate Middleton’s health was updated while Prince William had to make a sad choice

Kensington Palace issued an update on Kate Middleton’s well-being a few weeks following the Princess of Wales’ discharge from the hospital after undergoing abdominal surgery. Multiple news outlets report that Middleton is “recovering satisfactorily” as she continues her recuperation at home, thirteen days post-surgery. Currently, the Royal Family has not disclosed further details regarding Middleton’s medical condition that necessitated the surgery, and it remains uncertain if such information will be divulged in the future.

Moreover, there has been a notable absence of public updates regarding Middleton’s health, fueling widespread speculation that could have been preempted. One particularly contentious claim, propagated by Spanish journalist Concha Calleja, suggested that the Princess had been placed in a coma following her treatment. This assertion was vehemently refuted by the Royal Family, who have since assured the public of Middleton’s steady progress. It is anticipated that Middleton will refrain from attending any further family gatherings until at least after Easter this year.

Earlier today, Kensington Palace announced twice that Prince William would be absent from a memorial service honoring the late King Constantine of Greece due to a “personal matter”. Following this revelation, the Palace swiftly reassured the public that Kate Middleton is “in good health”, perhaps in an effort to preempt any escalating speculation. Reports indicate that William was slated to deliver a reading at the service in St. George’s Chapel but subsequently contacted the Greek family to express his inability to attend.

According to reports from the Daily Express, King Charles will also be absent from the service as he undergoes treatment for cancer. Instead, Queen Camilla will lead the Royal Family in paying their respects at the funeral.
