Kate Middleton and Prince William often attend engagements with their kids.

"I don't think she wanted to make more of a big thing of it than it already was. They’ll be rallying 'round in their own way and helping to look after her,” royal biographer Ingrid Seward said in an interview.

Kate kept the specific details of her operation private, but she is currently recuperating from the comfort of her royal estate: Adelaide Cottage.

“I’m sure she’s utterly exhausted, but she’ll recover well,” Seward added.

During Kate's healing period, William is expected to tend to his wife and their offspring. OK! previously reported former royal butler Grant Harrold noticed how affectionate the Prince of Wales was with his brood.

“Like any family, it’s always wonderful when a loved one is able to come back home," Harrold said in an interview. "I’m sure the kids are really excited to have Kate back."

"It will also be great for William, because when your partner or your loved one isn’t home, it leaves a void," the insider noted. "The fact that Kate is back home, behind closed doors, it’ll mean they’re able to return to some sense of normality."
