Breaking news: Kate Middleton is recovering from a planned, but previously unannounced abdominal surgery and will remain in the hospital for the next few weeks.
Earlier this morning, the Prince and Princess of Wales released a full statement on their shared Instagram account. The Kensington Palace statement reads as follows: “Her Royal Highness The Princess of Wales was admitted to hospital yesterday for planned abdominal surgery. The surgery was successful and it is expected that she will remain in the 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.”
