While we all were waiting for Catherine, The Princess of Wales, to make her debut 2024 public appearance – a shocking news was released by Kensington Palace.

Her Royal Highness The Princess of Wales was admitted to The London Clinic yesterday for planned abdominal surgery.

Palace did not release any information about the cause of the surgery but confirmed to various Royal reporters that it was not cancerous. The 42-years old, Princess Kate will stay at the hospital for 10 to 14 days and then will be recuperating at Adelaide Cottage, her Windsor home, for next few months. As per Palace statements, she is not expected to make any public appearance until after Easter.

The Statement continues “The Princess of Wales appreciates the interest this statement will generate. She hopes that the public will understand her desire to maintain as much normality for her children as possible; and her wish that her personal medical information remains private. Kensington Palace will, therefore, only provide updates on Her Royal Highness’ progress when there is significant new information to share“.

The press release fired up the rumour mill and media began its camping outside London Clinic where Princess Kate is currently hospitalized. The Prince of Wales has cancelled all of his upcoming engagements to support his wife and to take care of their three children. An official visit to Rome planned this spring will now be rescheduled for later this year or early next year.

The hospital London Clinic which was opened in 1932, with a special cancer ward inaugurated by Late Queen Elizabeth II in 2010, is a leading health care centre. Princess Margret was treated here for a skin lesion in 1980 while late Prince Philip went through an abdominal surgery at the same hospital in 2013.

The Daily Telegraph reported that “The Telegraph understands that Kensington Palace has not ruled out more details about the Princess’s surgery being revealed in due course. Sources noted that it was the Princess’s private medical information and so was a matter entirely for her. However it is thought that as and when she is ready to talk about it, she may opt to do so“.

Whether The Princess chooses to reveal any further information about her health or not is her private matter. The lengthy recovery period means the condition is a serious one. We wish Catherine a speedy recovery and hope her family will have the privacy they deserve during this time.


A few hours later, Buckingham Palace released a statement that read, “In common with thousands of men each year, the King has sought treatment for an enlarged prostate. His Majesty’s condition is benign and he will attend hospital next week for a corrective procedure. The King’s public engagements will be postponed for a short period of recuperation.” The Guardian reports, “It is understood that the King was keen to share details of his diagnosis to encourage other men who may be experiencing symptoms to get checked in line with public health advice.”
