Catherine, Princess of Wales, has been released from hospital after a stay in surgery
Catherine, the Princess of Wales, has returned home from hospital following stomach surgery, Kensington Palace said in a statement on Monday, adding that she was “making good progress.”
Catherine, 42, the wife of the heir to the British throne Prince William, was admitted on January 16 to the London Clinic hospital after surgery for an unspecified, but non-cancerous, condition.
King Charles is believed to be still in the same hospital after he planned to undergo treatment there on Friday to treat an enlarged prostate.
Kensington Palace said Catherine had returned home to Windsor.
“He is making good progress,” the statement said.
“The Prince and Princess would like to thank the entire team at the London Clinic, in particular the dedicated nursing staff, for the care they provide.”
There are no upcoming public events
The princess is not due to return to public duties until after Easter. Her husband Prince William, the heir to the throne, postponed his engagements to take care of their three children, Prince George, 10, Princess Charlotte, 8, and Prince Louis, 5.
Few details of her illness or surgery are given because British royals usually consider all medical issues a private matter.
However, Charles chose to publicize his condition to encourage other men to get medical checks.
He visited Catherine in hospital before having a “corrective procedure” to treat a benign enlarged prostate, a condition common in men over 50.
Charles’ public engagements have also been postponed to allow for a short recovery period.
