Kate Middleton ‘will share more about her health but one thing needs to happen first’

Kate, Princess of Wales will speak openly about her operation and recovery, according to reports, though it is expected she will only do this when she feels ‘ready’

Kate is willing to reveal more about her health, according to reports – but one thing needs to happen first.

The Princess of Wales has not been seen on public duties since undergoing abdominal surgery in January, and Kensington Palace said in an initial announcement that she would take a break until after Easter for her recovery.

Husband Prince William has instead been appearing on behalf of the two of them, balancing this with some of the demands of home life and an increased workload following the King’s cancer diagnosis.

But Kate’s recovery in private has recently been shaken by the controversy surrounding her Mother’s Day image, as well as a slew of bizarre conspiracy theories circulated by people online.

A royal source reportedly told The Sunday Times that Kate will finally address her absence when she is back to full health – and when the right moment comes to talk about it. Speaking about when Kate does return, a royal source told the publication: “They are at their most open when out interacting with members of the public and I can see a world in which the princess might discuss her recovery out on engagements. If she was going to do it, that’s how she would do it.”

A friend added: “They will want to be clear and more open, but they’ll do it when they feel ready. I would expect that to be her instinct and it will be her call. They’re not going to be rushed.”

The newspaper’s royal correspondent Roya Nikkhah also reported that the Princess of Wales is expected to return to royal duties after the children’s Easter holidays, rather than Easter Sunday. Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis will return to school at Lambrook on April 17 after Easter, as Kate and William traditionally spend the school holidays with their family.

While she has not yet shared any details about her operation, Kate has previously spoken very openly about her medical history. During a visit to the Orchards Centre in Kent last year, she recalled being diagnosed with hyperemesis gravidarum during the first weeks of her pregnancy with Prince George. Speaking to a dad whose wife had also developed the pregnancy sickness, she said: “[It was] utterly rotten. I was really sick I wasn’t eating the things I should be eating and yet the body was still able to take all the goodness from my body and to grow new life, which I think is fascinating.”

The Mirror contacted Kensington Palace for comment.
