Kate, Princess of Wales, Out of Hospital After Abdominal Surgery

Catherine, the Princess of Wales and the wife of Prince William, has returned home from a London hospital almost two weeks after undergoing abdominal surgery, Kensington Palace said in a statement on Monday.

She will convalesce at home for two to three months, according to her office at the palace, and will not return to official duties until after Easter, which falls on March 31 this year.

“The Princess of Wales has returned home to Windsor to continue her recovery from surgery. She is making good progress,” Kensington Palace said in the statement.

It added: “The Prince and Princess wish to say a huge thank you to the entire team at The London Clinic, especially the dedicated nursing staff, for the care they have provided.

“The Wales family continues to be grateful for the well wishes they have received from around the world.”

Kensington Palace did not offer any details on Catherine’s surgery, other than to say that it had been planned and was successful. Unlike her public appearances outside St. Mary’s Hospital in London after the births of the couple’s children, she was not seen leaving the London Clinic, a private hospital in the city’s Marylebone neighborhood.
