For the past week, attention worldwide has been on the British royal family. On January 17, 2024, Kensington Palace announced that Kate Middleton was admitted to a private hospital to recuperate from successful abdominal surgery. Media outlets continue to closely follow the health of the 42-year-old wife of the future king.

The information provided by Kensington Palace states that Kate will stay for 10 to 14 days in a private clinic in Marylebone, London. The Duchess is under the care of top doctors and loving support from her family, including her husband. Prince William has not only taken on all parental responsibilities but also offers his beloved wife company at her hospital bedside.

Kate Middleton's forthcoming discharge and her return to duties

Media reports indicate that Kate's health is improving daily and she is eagerly counting down the days until her return home. After discharge from the hospital, she will be relocated to Adelaide Cottage in Windsor for further recuperation at home. Despite feeling much better, her convalescence will still limit her activities and royal duties.

Kensington Palace issued a statement on Wednesday indicating that it's unlikely the Duchess will resume public duties before Easter. However, other media, including the "Daily Mail", suggest that the daughter-in-law of King Charles III plans to return to work as soon as possible. Most likely, even during her home convalescence, the Duchess will remain connected with the charities she supports.
