Kate, the Princess of Wales, breaks silence post-surgery, expresses gratitude for support


In her first public message since undergoing abdominal surgery in January, Kate, the Princess of Wales, extended heartfelt gratitude to the public for their unwavering support.

Accompanied by a captivating snapshot captured by her husband, Prince William, the future king, the image portrays Kate, 42, radiating health and joy as she embraces her three children, Princes George and Louis, and Princess Charlotte.

"Thank you for your kind wishes and continued support over the last two months," Kate conveyed in a heartfelt message shared on X, coinciding with Britain's Mother's Day celebration. The photograph, taken earlier this week in Windsor, where the family resides, captures a moment of familial bliss amidst Kate's recovery journey.

Following her surgery for a non-cancerous ailment, Kate spent a fortnight in the hospital in January, necessitating her absence from public engagements. Kensington Palace has disclosed that her return to official duties is anticipated post-Easter, marking the end of this month.

Despite her prolonged absence, Kate's well-being has been subject to speculation on social media, prompting her office to emphasize that updates on her recovery will be provided selectively. This follows a recent statement from her office clarifying its stance on sharing only "significant updates" regarding her health.

Coinciding with Kate's medical journey, palace officials announced King Charles's hospitalization for treatment of an enlarged prostate on the same day as Kate's surgery. Subsequent medical evaluations revealed an unspecified form of cancer. While the monarch has temporarily postponed public engagements to undergo treatment, glimpses of his royal duties as head of state have been captured in the media.
