The Princess of Wales underwent abdominal surgery in January

Princess Catherine new health update issued as Prince of Wales makes last-minute change to schedule

It is reported that the Princess of Wales is “doing well” despite her recuperation. The uncommon remark was made on Tuesday when Kensington Palace released a statement stating that her husband Prince William was forced to cancel his attendance at a Windsor Castle memorial service for the late King Constantine of Greece because of a personal issue.

Although the Palace would not provide more details, they did state that Princess Catherine, who is recuperating from abdominal surgery, is doing well.

It is believed that Prince William apologized in private and in advance to the Greek royal family for his absence.

The 42-year-old Catherine is recovering at home and won’t be attending any formal royal events until after Easter. After undergoing major abdominal surgery and spending 13 days in the hospital, Princess Catherine returned to her Windsor base, Adelaide Cottage.

Princess Catherine has since traveled to Sandringham, where she spent half of the half-term with her spouse and kids. The royal is probably back at his Windsor residence at this point.

Although the Princess’s condition’s specifics are unknown, the Palace previously stated that Catherine wanted her private medical records to be kept private and that the illness was unrelated to cancer.

Earlier this month, the Princess of Wales returned home to Windsor to continue her recuperation from surgery, the Palace announced in a statement. She is progressing well.

“The entire team at The London Clinic, especially the committed nursing staff, has our sincere gratitude for the care that they have given, the Prince and Princess say. The Wales family is still appreciative of all the good vibes they have been showered with worldwide.”

King Charles’ cancer diagnosis was made public at the same time as the surgery. Taking on more duties for his family, Prince William recently spoke at London’s Air Ambulance Charity Gala Dinner, touching on a number of important topics, including his father’s and wife’s health.

“Good evening, everyone,” he said. “I appreciate everyone being here. I also want to thank everyone whose efforts have made this evening possible.”

“I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you for the kind messages of support that you have sent to my father and Catherine, especially in the last few days. It is very important to all of us.”
