Finally at home Kate is reunited with her three children

Finally at home! Kate is reunited with her three children for the first time in two weeks after being discharged from hospital… And King Charles is also happy about the discharge!

The Princess of Wales was reunited with her three children for the first time in two weeks following her final discharge from hospital.

Kate, who Kensington Palace says is “doing well”, left the London Clinic in Marylebone yesterday morning after being admitted for surgery on January 16.

King Charles was also discharged yesterday after surgery for an enlarged prostate, with the two royals leaving hospital in central London just hours after each other.

The king has been advised to avoid public appearances for up to a month, although he will go through his red boxes of government papers almost immediately. Kate, 42, is not expected to be seen in public until after Easter.

The email reveals that 10-year-old Prince George, eight-year-old Princess Charlotte and five-year-old Prince Louis were not taken to hospital to visit their mother after she recovered from what was described as “abdominal surgery”.

As her children were at school when she arrived at her home in Windsor, they would probably not have seen her for the first time until they returned to Adelaide Cottage later that afternoon from Lambrook School, a ten-minute drive away.

It will almost certainly be the longest time the princess has been away from them.

Both William and Kate have prioritized their children above all else and have arranged their schedules so that at least one can do the school run if possible.

They have also made sure that trips abroad are shorter so they can be home on weekends. The only exception is their trip to the Caribbean in 2022.

It is understood Prince William, who noted in his diary that he was by his wife's side throughout, was in hospital when she was discharged and probably drove her home.

In a statement yesterday, a Kensington Palace spokesman said: “The Princess of Wales has returned to Windsor to continue her recovery from surgery. “She is making good progress.

“The Prince and Princess would like to say a big thank you to the entire London Clinic team, particularly the dedicated nursing staff, for the care they provided.”

“The Wales family remains grateful for the congratulations they have received.”

It is believed that the princess left with her husband in a car through a private exit at around 11am.

Half an hour later, Kensington Palace staff were seen leaving the palace, one with an arrangement of white orchids in his car.

Kate will now recover at home and her return to official duties will depend on medical advice at a later date.

It has been suggested she may not be able to take on public roles until after Easter, meaning all planned engagements – including two trips abroad – have been canceled, although aides hope they can be rearranged.

It is understood William plans to resume public engagements once his wife is settled at home and recovering. Further details will be announced later.

He had help from the couple's nanny, Maria Turrion Borrallo, and his in-laws, Michael and Carole Middleton, who will continue to support him.

Kensington Palace said it would not discuss the princess' condition further and that it was her “wish” that her personal medical information remained confidential.

However, King Charles left the hospital very publicly yesterday with his wife, Queen Camilla, who visited him daily and spent hours at his bedside.

The 75-year-old monarch contradicted claims that there were fears for his health, smiling broadly and waving to the public and media as he left at 3 p.m. His condition is benign.

Without any sign of discomfort, he walked to his car, even rolling down the window to smile and wave again.

The royal has been praised for his openness about his diagnosis in the hope that it will encourage other men to come forward and seek help. One in three men his age suffers from prostate problems.

NHS England said the “enlarged prostate” page on its website was viewed once every five seconds on the day King's diagnosis was announced, with further views in the following days.

Camilla previously said her husband was “doing well” and was looking forward to getting back to work.

Buckingham Palace said yesterday: “The King has postponed upcoming public appearances to allow a period of private recovery.”

“He would like to thank the medical team and everyone who supported his visit to hospital and is grateful for all the kind messages he has received over the last few days.”

A fortnight ago, on Tuesday January 16, Kate checked into the London clinic – royal sources said she was making “good progress” and will now continue her recovery from home.

Charles visited Kate last Friday morning before his operation and was also visited four times by his wife Queen Camilla in hospital in Marylebone.

The 75-year-old monarch was admitted around 9am last Friday morning as he was undergoing corrective action for the benign condition.

The street had been cleared, but a large crowd of children and onlookers had gathered to watch them climb into a waiting car.

There was a heavy presence of uniformed police officers keeping watch as the royal couple were evicted.

The King was visited twice by Queen Camilla yesterday, the third and fourth time she has visited him since her arrival at the private hospital.

The royal arrived in London from Norfolk last Thursday, ready for the procedure after carrying out a few official duties behind the scenes.

He was diagnosed with the benign condition on January 17 while staying in Birkhall, Aberdeenshire, after undergoing a scan for symptoms.

News of his diagnosis came on the same day that Kensington Palace announced that the princess was in hospital.

Kate's long road to recovery: How Princess of Wales plans to 'work from bed' in Windsor and won't take part in the school run as she recovers from abdominal surgery – and her royal duties are ruled out until Easter

The Princess of Wales has been discharged from hospital following abdominal surgery, but experts say her road to recovery at home has only just begun.

Kate, 42, left the London Clinic after 14 days and is now back home at Adelaide Cottage in Windsor Great Park, surrounded by her husband and three loving children.

While palace insiders said she wants to return to work “as soon as possible,” things won't be back to normal for the princess just yet, as she and Prince William are currently focusing on “100 percent family first, day job second.” “Point” focus. .

The Queen will not undertake her official duties until after Easter and could carry out any necessary work from her bed, with her return to public duties dependent on medical advice closer to the time, Web understands.

Her husband Prince William will take on additional parenting responsibilities and has cleared his schedule of official duties while she recovers. Only when she has settled down will he return to public engagements.

When news broke that Kate had been discharged, a Kensington Palace spokesman said: “The Princess of Wales has returned to Windsor to continue her recovery from surgery. “She is making good progress.

“The Prince and Princess would like to say a big thank you to the entire London Clinic team, particularly the dedicated nursing staff, for the care they provided.”

“The Wales family remains grateful for the good wishes they have received from around the world.”

There were previously concerns that the length of Kate's stay at the exclusive London clinic suggested the procedure was “serious”.

The exact details of the princess's health have not been disclosed, but the palace previously said it was not cancer and that Kate wanted her personal medical information to remain private.

While bed rest is advisable for anyone recovering from invasive surgery, doctors also emphasize the importance of sitting up to avoid muscle loss and gradually attempting to return to an active lifestyle as appropriate for your condition.

However, she will likely avoid any strenuous activities for now, as William is responsible for both dropping off and picking up her three children from school.

The heir to the throne is said to be a “powerful” father and is regularly seen at the school gates at Lambrook School in Berkshire. Insiders say he's “not fazed” when it comes to raising Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis while his wife recovers.

Kate's parents Carole and Michael Middleton and siblings Pippa Matthews and James Middleton are also expected to help the Waleses cope over the next few months while the princess recovers.

The family lives in Adelaide Cottage at Windsor's Home Park and is supported by their staff, including loyal, long-time nanny Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo.

NHS advice on recovery from abdominal surgery is that it takes two to three months to be able to move comfortably again after major surgery with a large incision.

However, this is quicker if the procedure is keyhole surgery.

Patients undergoing major abdominal surgery are strongly advised to avoid lifting anything heavier than the weight of a full kettle – around 2 to 3kg.

It can also take two years for the abdominal wall's strength to return to its previous state.

Sitting and standing exercises are recommended to build strength, with the goal of walking gradually each day and increasing the distance to 30 minutes per day within two to three months.

Downing Street welcomed Kate's release from hospital. The Prime Minister's official spokesman told reporters at a Westminster briefing when the news broke: “This would be welcome news for both the royal family and the wider public, I'm sure.”

Among the dates the princess will miss in the coming weeks are the Baftas in February, the annual Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey and the St David's Day parade in early March, and later the St Patrick's Day parade with the military in the same month.

Aides insist the princess will be out of sight for the next few months but will likely be working behind the scenes on her early projects.

She recently launched a campaign called “Shaping Us” to raise awareness about the importance of the first five years of a child’s life.

“Her passion for the early years is clear, there will be a major continuation of this campaign and she will be keen to continue this conversation with the nation as quickly as possible,” an aide told The Times.

While the Princess of Wales recovers, engagements with the Princess of Wales's 30 charities and patrons will be canceled, postponed or postponed.

Official trips abroad for William and Kate, including a planned trip to Italy in March, are also off the table for the time being.

While she recovers, Kate is expected to receive “a lot of care and support at home,” a source close to the royal household tells PEOPLE.

They added that the princess is “a fit young woman” and that they are “confident she will get back on her feet.”
