Kate Middleton struck with one demand by royal expert in the middle of recovering from surgery

Kate Middleton struck with one demand by royal expert in the middle of recovering from surgery.


Except for the short trip to Anmer Hall with her husband and children, Kate Middleton spends her days at home where she recovers from the “planned” abdominal surgery.

As per the Palace, the Princess of Wales is expected to return to her royal duties not sooner than Easter. According to many, both the two-week long hospital stay and the many months of recovery may suggest that her surgery was more complex than everyone assumed and her condition was more serious.

Sadly, following the news of Kate’s surgery, the Palace shared the devastating news of King Charles’ cancer diagnosis.

He’s currently receiving treatment in London each week and uses the rest of the time to rest at Sandringham.

This means that the already slimmed down monarchy, more precisely the number of working royals, lowered as Kate cleaned her working schedule while King Charles either postponed or rescheduled his royal engagements.

It is now Prince William who performs most of the royal duties while also taking care of the children.

According to Christopher Andersen, author of The King, “Kate is worried about the psychic toll these twin medical battles are having on her husband.”

“William is terribly concerned about Kate’s condition – we still don’t know what her abdominal surgery was for or why her recovery is taking months – and now he has to face the fact that his father has cancer. William has always made it clear that he wanted a full-fledged family life, and when Kate became incapacitated, he stepped in to play hands-on dad. He cut back on his schedule to drive the kids to school, the whole nine yards,” he told Fox News Digital.

“Now he has resumed his royal duties much sooner than perhaps he would have liked. But there are times when duty trumps family life and, after all, William is the future king.”

Kate’s real medical condition prompted plenty of rumors and speculations.

In the first statement made by Kensington Palace, it said that Kate hoped that “the public will understand her desire to maintain as much normality for her children as possible” and also that she wished that “her personal medical information remains private.”

Royal expert Richard Eden appeared on the show Palace Confidential and revealed that readers constantly send letters to The Times, asking questions regarding Kate’s procedure.

He dubbed this efforts by the public “bullying.”

“I think that there’s no reason why she should feel bullied into giving more details,” Eden said, per Express. “If she wants to, at a later point, fine, that’s up to her. But, she shouldn’t feel that she has to.

“It’s been ‘She should give more details,’ and ‘Why doesn’t she?’

“And there’s been more pressure, there’s even been letters written to The Times newspaper, saying it would be a great example to other women if she was to be more open about her medical problems and this sort of thing.”

Almost two months after Kate’s last public appearance, Newsweek’s chief royal correspondent, Jack Royston, makes a demand to William and Kate asking from them to reveal more information about what is going on.

“[The Princess of Wales] is still recovering, we still haven’t seen her, we still haven’t seen a picture of her,” the chief royal correspondent said.

“I am starting to wonder if it might be worth their while considering whether they could release something that had been taken at a calm private moment, just to reassure people that she is ok.”

He believes that the public needs to be assured that the Princess isn’t experiencing any major health issues.

King Charles on the other hand decided to share the news of his surgery for enlarged prostate cancer and he’s been widely praised for that decision because not only he opens up of his personal health state, but he’s helping raise awareness, something Kate opted not to do.

Daniela Elser is among those who believes that Kate sharing details of her surgery and her condition could have helped others.

“The abdomen starts with the liver and ends somewhere colon-ish, meaning that there are umpteen reasons why the princess might currently be laid up and enjoying midmorning tele in a pristine starched white room full of bleepy machines and enough flower arrangements to kit out Westminster Abbey,” Elser wrote for News.com.au.

“No one who is not in the Middleton family chat knows exactly what is troubling the mother-of-three and I can’t help but think that the princess has wasted an enormous opportunity here. Kate could possibly have made a huge difference this month and she has chosen not to.”

However, besides being a princess, Kate Middleton is also a human being who’s entitled to her privacy.

“She has every right to not have to air her every sniffle, ache, and minor rash with the leering public or is not obligated to have her staff put out a press release every time she might get some light symptoms of IBS,” Elser continued.

“All that has been made known by Kensington Palace about the princess is that whatever is wrong with her is non-cancerous, a detail I’m assuming they only released to prevent mass panic in the aisles of Asda. Tamping down public fears is good and all that but hardly goes much of a ways for such a huge missed opportunity.”

Elser concluded, “The princess has wholly passed up on the chance to raise awareness about whatever might be bedeviling her right now and to possibly also destigmatize whatever illness might be ailing her. Charles, in making me type the word ‘prostate’ far too often, has done the world a great service. So why hasn’t Kate?”
