Following the successful abdominal surgery Kate Middleton has undergone, fans sent her their well-wishes.
According to the statement released by the Palace, the Princess was told she should spend ten to fourteen days at the hospital, after which she is supposed to continue her recovery at home.
“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.”
During her time of recuperation, Prince William would be the one to be taking care of the couple’s three children, of course, with the help of their long-time nanny, Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo.
Borrallo has been with the family since Prince George was just 8 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.
When the couple are away from home, the nanny makes all the decisions regarding the children.
Borallo was trained at the prestigious Norland College in Bath. “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,” a royal insider said.
Royal expert Jennie Bond believes the children would do fine but they will certainly be confused.
“William is, sadly, perfectly placed to help. He knows exactly how it feels to be worried about your mum, and, in his case, to lose her. So he will be taking extra care to reassure the children and tell them as much, or as little, as he judges they need to hear,” Bond said.
“I’m sure that as soon as it is appropriate, William will take them to see her in hospital, because children need that kind of face-to-face reassurance. They’ll be FaceTiming a lot, I’m sure and showing them that Mum’s alright.”
Jennie Bond added: “He’ll be feeling emotional, stressed and probably rather bewildered by this sudden turn of events.”
“You can have every privilege in life, but your health is paramount and beyond your control. William will certainly visit Kate as much as he can, but also be there for the children. They want to keep things as normal as possible, so I’d expect William will be doing the school run, helping with homework, cooking and doing the bedtime routine.”
As expected, moments after the Palace announced the news regarding Kate Middleton’s surgery, people from all over the world took their time to wish her speedy 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,” a fourth stated.
Among the well-wishers were Harry and Meghan.
“The King and the Princess of Wales have received support from Prince Harry and Meghan regarding their health,” the source said, adding that the couple have “contacted both parties in different ways to pass on their concern and best wishes.”
Their message have been interpreted by many as an olive branch from the Sussexes whose relationship with the rest of the members of the Firm continues to be a rocky one and Harry and Meghan didn’t do much to make things right. On the contrary, their interviews, Harry’s book Spare, as well as their Netflix documentary, only made things worse.
But of course, as there are some who believe that the Sussexes are to be blamed for the troubles within the Royal family, there are also those who support Harry and Meghan.
Some of the fans of the latter referred to Kate’s hospital stay as to “payback after a long, stressful period.”
This angered many of Kate’s fans, among which Daily Mail royal expert Richard Eden who took to X to address these posts.
“Some of the posts on here about the Princess of Wales’s health problems from #PrinceHarry and # Meghan’s supporters really disgust me,” he wrote, as per Express.
Many users on X supported Eden’s stance, with one saying: “Meghan Markle’s fan base represent her perfectly.”
Another claimed: “Well said, Richard. It’s horrific”, while a third stated: “What do you expect? Many are being paid by Markle! Evil personified.”
“Richard we’re used to it as they have attacked Catherine for 4 years. The thing is, [the Princess of Wales] is actually a lovely kind woman and they do it in the name of a fame chaser who has shown time and time again, that she’s not a nice person. Misplaced and ignorant,” a fourth person wrote.
As expected, there were also comments under Eden’s post in favor of Harry and Meghan.
“Do comments about the Sussexes & their children from the William & Kate supporters also disgust you? U never mention it. I wish K8 a speedy recovery but u & yr colleagues write of H&M like they’re the Moors Murderers. U r all to blame 4 this toxic situation u have helped create,” someone commented.
We only hope that things would improve between Harry and Meghan and the rest of the Royals in the time to come.
