Kate Middleton will be on medical leave until the spring.

OK! previously reported Prince William would care for his wife during her healing period.

“Like any family, it’s always wonderful when a loved one is able to come back home," former royal butler Grant 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 added. "The fact that Kate is back home, behind closed doors, it’ll mean they’re able to return to some sense of normality."

"I think they’ll be keen to get back to normal with it," he continued. "There won’t be a huge team there on hand. It’ll be her husband who’ll mainly be doing that, helping her to get back onto her feet."

As Kate focuses on her well-being, the palace asked fans to avoid demanding intimate details.

"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," the rep requested. "Kensington Palace will, therefore, only provide updates on Her Royal Highness’ progress when there is significant new information to share."

Levin was quoted by GB News.
