The Princess of Wales was discharged from the clinic yesterday following abdominal surgery
Finally home, Kate Middleton has reunited with her children after two weeks of hospitalization in the clinic for an abdominal operation. The three children – George, 10, Charlotte, eight, and Louis, five – had not come to visit her at the London Clinic in Marylebone, the Daily Mail reveals, and had never been separated from her mother for so long.
Kate and William, future British sovereigns, have chosen to be the most normal parents possible for their children. Their trips are always carefully planned so as not to leave the children behind for too long. Admitted on January 16, Kate was discharged yesterday, leaving the clinic through a secondary exit, without being noticed by the media. It was probably her William who picked her up in his car around 11am to take her to their residence at Adelaide Cottage, a four-room villa in the grounds of Windsor Castle. Here Kate had time to settle in before the arrival of her children, who had gone as every day to Lambrook School, a ten minute drive from the cottage.
William is an attentive father, he often comes to pick up his children from school by car, and during his wife’s hospitalization he canceled all appointments to be with the family. Supporting him in these two weeks were his in-laws, Michael and Carole Middleton, as well as Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo, the nanny of Spanish origin adored by the three little princes. When Kensington Palace made it known that Kate had undergone abdominal surgery the day before, it was immediately clarified that the princess would not resume public commitments before Easter. But it is believed that William will resume his commitments first, once his wife’s convalescence has begun. Kate’s operation, about which no details were provided for privacy reasons, canceled an official trip of the Princes of Wales to Italy, which was in preparation.
King Charles III was also discharged from the London Clinic yesterday, having undergone an operation for an enlarged prostate. The 75-year-old sovereign, hospitalized on Friday, chose to reveal his medical condition to encourage men his age to take prevention measures. Yesterday Charles went out walking next to Queen Camilla and was greeted by a small crowd of people as he got into the car that came to pick him up.
