On Christmas Day, we can see Princess Kate (42) going to church with her entire family. After that, she was not seen in public.
Last week, it was reported that she had been hospitalized. Kensington Palace did not reveal what she was suffering from, and merely underwent surgery in the stomach area.
The Princess is at the exclusive London Clinic in Marylebone, a private hospital where safety and medical expertise are paramount. The mother of three was admitted to hospital and underwent surgery the day before Al Qalaa announced the news.
Kensington Palace will only update her health when there is important new information to share, the press release said.
Sick for Easter
The Princess of Wales will be hospitalized for ten to fourteen days before being allowed to return home. Then there will be a long sick leave.
The statement said that based on current medical advice, it is unlikely to resume work until after Easter.
All planned events have been canceled – and the glitzy Bafta Awards, traditional Commonwealth Day service or fun St Patrick's Day celebration will now not benefit from the Princess's participation. Planned trips to Latvia and Rome are also likely to be postponed indefinitely.
It wasn't long after Kate's mysterious disorder became known that Buckingham Palace sent out a press release that King Charles, 75, would undergo surgery this week. But here they said the diagnosis.
Like thousands of men every year, King Charles will be treated for an enlarged prostate, a castle spokesman said.
He called in sick the next day, and will likely be away at work all that week. Normally, Prince William (41) would be ready to take on the responsibility of his father, the King. But he explained that he cleared his calendar so he could defend his wife and children.
Therefore, it is Princess Anne (73 years old) who should step in as an alternative if the need arises.
– Never before have three important members of the royal family stopped working at the same time, says Daily Mail royal journalist Rebecca English.
Although the king's operation is purely routine, and he has been praised for being open about such an intimate topic, there are many who show interest in the princess. She had previously been healthy and fast, except when she was pregnant with her eldest son, Prince George (10 years old), and had to be hospitalized because she suffered from severe morning sickness.
According to sources at the Castle, it won't be cancer that she has, but it won't be any more obvious.
As a result, speculation is growing among anxious Britons, both face-to-face and online. Concerns were also expressed on William and Kate's Instagram account, where the statement was posted.
“It must be very serious for her to be hospitalized for 14 days,” one wrote.
Another wrote: “It's very strange that the Castle says what kind of illness King Charles has, but is so vague about Kate.”
In traditional media, no one has yet speculated on the possible cause.
– It is not safe or polite to speculate about private health-related matters. But it's normal to have anxiety about the woman who will one day become our queen, says doctor Martin Scurr to the Daily Mail.
The Princess of Wales appreciates the interest this statement will arouse. She hopes the public will understand her desire to maintain as much normalcy for her children as possible; The statement issued by Kensington Palace stated the desire for her personal health information to remain private.
As a result, many are wondering whether in order to protect children Prince George and Princess Charlotte (8 years old) and little Prince Louis (5 years old) the diagnosis will be kept secret. Since mom is now in hospital, the three children are getting extra time with dad William.
He drops off and collects children at school from Adelaide Cottage in Berkshire, and sometimes drives into central London to visit loved ones in hospital.
– No wonder staff at the castle have confirmed that when he is not at Kate's bedside, William's priority is the children and not royal duties at the moment. It's a refreshing and welcome change from the way things were in the past, King's author Richard Kay tells the Daily Mail.
– But there is of course a great deal of concern about such a publication being issued suddenly.
