Catherine, Princess of Wales, released from hospital after surgery


Catherine, Princess of Wales, has returned from hospital following abdominal surgery, Kensington Palace said in a statement on Monday, adding that she was making “good progress”.

Catherine, 42, wife of the heir to the British throne, Prince William, was admitted to the London Clinic hospital on January 16 after undergoing surgery for an unspecified, but non-cancerous, illness.

King Charles is believed to still be in the same hospital after scheduled treatment for Friday to treat an enlarged prostate.

Kensington Palace said Catherine was now back home in Windsor.

“She is making good progress,” the statement said.

“The Prince and Princess would like to send a huge thank you to the entire London Clinic team, in particular the dedicated nursing staff, for the care they have provided.”

No imminent public activity

The princess is only expected to return to public duties after Easter. Her husband, Prince William, heir to the throne, postponed his commitments to care for their three children, Prince George, 10, Princess Charlotte, 8, and Prince Louis, 5.

Few details about his illness or surgery have been given, as the British royal family generally considers all medical issues a private matter.

Charles, however, chose to publicize his state of health to encourage other men to undergo medical examinations.

He visited Catherine in hospital before undergoing a “corrective procedure” to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia, a common condition in men over 50.

Charles’ public engagements were also postponed to allow a short recovery period.
