The Princess of Wales spent the past few weeks at the Private London Clinic following a planned abdominal surgery. Speculation surrounding her hospital stay suggests that the Palace’s silence on details might indicate the procedure was more serious than initially thought.

Throughout her stay, Prince William visited daily, but her children only communicated with her via phone and FaceTime due to hospital restrictions. William assumed primary childcare responsibilities with assistance from the family’s longtime nanny.

As Kate continues her recovery, William intends to resume royal duties while balancing time at home. Kensington Palace announced her return to Windsor for continued recovery, thanking The London Clinic staff and expressing gratitude for worldwide well-wishes.

Alongside William and staff, Kate’s family, including her parents, sister Pippa Matthews, and James Middleton, are supporting her recovery. The Middletons were reportedly at the hospital, focusing on childcare while William attended to Kate.

After leaving the hospital, Kate returned to Adelaide Cottage on the Windsor grounds, a historic residence built in 1831 for Queen Adelaide. Despite its royal history and recent renovations, some question its suitability for recovery due to its reportedly cold environment.

Royal expert Michael Cole cautioned against Adelaide Cottage as a recovery location, citing historical accounts of its chilliness. He noted the absence of a departure photo call and highlighted that while it’s convenient for the children’s schooling, it lacks adequate space for household staff.

While Adelaide Cottage offers Kate a rural lifestyle away from Kensington Palace’s bustle, Cole suggested her parents’ larger home in Berkshire might be more suitable for her recovery.
