Kate Middleton ‘not a show pony’ as pals say she will be open ‘when she is ready’

Kate will not be rushed into speaking about her health because she is not a ‘show pony’, a source close to the Princess of Wales has reportedly said, amid ongoing speculation about her condition

Kate, Princess of Wales, is ‘not a show pony’ and will speak more openly about her health when she is ‘ready’, a source has said.

The Princess of Wales has been rarely seen since undergoing major abdominal surgery in January, prompting bizarre speculation by some people online over her health and wellbeing.

An image released of her and her children to mark Mother’s Day last Sunday also saw her subjected to some harsh criticism from parts of the media, after it emerged she had edited it before it was released the public.

New reports this weekend have claimed Kate is willing to open up about her recovery and absence from the public eye soon – but it is said she will not be rushed into doing so, and will choose the right moment when she is back on royal duties.

It is thought that the intense spotlight that surrounds the future Queen has led Kensington Palace to try and keep the progress of her recovery private. A close source reportedly told The Sunday Times: “There is almost nobody else in the world whose face, body, clothes are more judged than hers. So it’s entirely right for them not to want to be drawn into a game about what is going on with her health. What is happening is exactly what they said would happen — she would spend two weeks in hospital and be back after Easter. So what if they haven’t pushed her out there to wave from the back of a car? She is not a show pony.”

Kate was admitted to the London Clinic – the private hospital where King Charles III also underwent treatment for an enlarged prostate – for planned abdominal surgery. She left the hospital on January 29, almost two weeks later, and returned to Adelaide Cottage in Windsor. Details of the princess’s condition have not been revealed, but Kensington Palace previously said it was not cancer related, and that Kate wished her personal medical information to remain private. The Palace also said she was expected to return to royal duties after Easter. The Mirror contacted Kensington Palace over comments made in the Sunday Times piece.
