London, England – Catherine, Princess of Wales, has been discharged from the hospital after undergoing abdominal surgery and has returned to her home in Windsor, according to a statement from Kensington Palace. The 42-year-old princess is said to be “making good progress” following the surgery, the nature of which has not been disclosed. She spent 13 nights in the hospital and will require several months of recovery before returning to her official duties, which are not expected until after Easter.
The princess was driven away from the London Clinic private hospital without making any public appearance, and has not been seen in public since Christmas Day. This morning, she left the hospital without being spotted and has now continued her recovery from home, at Adelaide Cottage in Windsor, as stated by Kensington Palace. The palace also expressed gratitude to the medical team at the hospital and for the well wishes received from around the world.
Interestingly, the King was also previously at the same hospital, visiting the princess before having a procedure for an enlarged prostate. The 75-year-old King remains in the hospital after being treated for a benign prostate problem, a common condition in older men. The decision to make the King’s procedure public was aimed at encouraging other men to get prostate checks.
The London Clinic private hospital has been at the center of attention as both the princess and the King have received medical treatment there. While the princess continues her recovery from home, the attention has now shifted to the King’s recuperation, raising awareness about prostate health in older men. As developments continue, the royal family’s health concerns have become a topic of public interest, with the King’s situation prompting discussions and reminders about men’s health issues.
