On Wednesday, January 17, the palace announced Kate was at the London Clinic after having an operation.

"The surgery was successful, and it is expected that she will remain in hospital for ten to fourteen days, before returning home to continue her recovery," an official statement read. "Based on the current medical advice, she is unlikely to return to public duties until after Easter."

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

As Kate recuperates, Prince William was initially expected to take a leave of absence to care for her, but after King Charles' cancer diagnosis, the Princess of Wales' relatives will help the future king.

"The Middleton Family share an incredibly tight bond and they’re known to rally around each other when times are tough," royal commentator Victoria Arbiter told GB News. "In this instance, they’re no doubt doing everything they can to help Prince William take care of the children and ensure they remain happy and worry-free."

"It will have been unsettling knowing their mom is in hospital but there’s comfort in having family close at hand," Arbiter noted.

Royal commentator Jennie Bond theorized that Carole is “very worried” about her eldest child, adding that the businesswoman is “clucking around like a mother hen.”

“I’m sure these old friends would know exactly how to keep Kate’s spirits up after such major surgery," Bond told an outlet.

"They have probably pampered her with fabulous gifts of luxurious spa products and hampers of delicious goodies to tempt her tastebuds," the commentator continued. "They know what she might like to watch on TV or to read, and may have been sending recommendations and encouraging her to rest and take the time out she needs."

Photos were published by TMZ.
