Kate Middleton discharged from hospital after surgery

The Duchess of Cambridge has been discharged from the hospital and is now at home, where she is reportedly making “good progress” in her recovery from abdominal surgery. She will continue her recovery at her residence in Windsor and is not expected to resume her royal duties until after Easter.

In a statement from Kensington Palace, it was stated, “The Duchess of Cambridge has returned home to Windsor to continue her recovery from surgery. She is making good progress. The Duke and Duchess 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 Cambridge family continues to be grateful for the well wishes they have received from around the world.”

According to royal sources, the timing of the Duchess’s return to official engagements will depend on medical advice. Kensington Palace had previously announced that she had cancelled all engagements until after Easter. During her absence, Prince William took care of their three children. It is expected that Prince William will resume his own engagements once the Duchess’s care and recovery are settled.

While the Duchess continues her recovery in Windsor, her work is still ongoing. The Times previously reported that she will need to rest but her daily activities would typically include school runs, meetings with her private office, charities, and the Royal Foundation team.

Kate’s assistant private secretary, Natalie Barrows, and William’s private secretary, Jean-Christophe Gray, have stepped up to help ensure that her work continues. Kensington Palace has contacted Kate’s 30 charities to postpone and reschedule engagements.

The Duchess’s recent work has included the campaign Shaping Up, which aims to raise awareness about the importance of the first five years of a child’s life.

News of the Duchess’s surgery came nearly two weeks ago, shortly followed by the announcement of King Charles’s treatment for an enlarged prostate. Both the Duchess and the King were treated at The London Clinic. While the Duchess has been discharged, King Charles remains in hospital. He is expected to take a month off from public engagements.

Charles decided to go public with his diagnosis in order to raise awareness of the condition, which affects tens of thousands of men each year. The NHS reported a significant increase in traffic to its website related to searches about enlarged prostate, crediting the King for his efforts in raising awareness.

Over the weekend, the Queen visited the King at the hospital on two separate occasions. The Duke of Cornwall’s close family members, including Duchess Camilla, have also visited him during his stay.

With the King and the Duchess both recovering and Prince Harry and Prince Andrew no longer working royals, the royal family is facing unique challenges. The remaining working members include Duchess Camilla, Princess Anne, the Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh, the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, the Duke of Kent, and Princess Alexandra.
