Prince William will care for Kate Middleton as she recovers from surgery.

“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."

As she recovers, Kate will take a step back from public engagements.

"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."

Harrold revealed William will be waiting on Kate “hand and foot."

“He’s a very caring, very loving kind of character and I noticed that a lot when I spent time with them both back in the day,” he recalled. “I’ve no doubt that wouldn’t have changed, William will make sure Kate is cared for and that she has a quick recovery.”

As Kate's heals, William will also take on fewer engagements to prioritize his household.

“The sooner her recovery, I’m sure the sooner the pair will get back to carrying out their royal duties together, which is something that I think they enjoy,” he shared, adding that the Wales appreciate "their working life together.”

"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 additional 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."

Harrold spoke to the New York Post.
