Kensington Palace has confirmed that Kate Middleton has left hospital after successful abdominal surgery.

The princess, who spent 13 days in private hospital with her family – Prince William and her three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis – has returned home to Windsor to complete her recovery.

Without divulging details of the operation performed on Princess Kate, the palace assured the public that it was planned and not cancer-related.

The royal couple expressed their gratitude in a written statement for the exceptional care provided to the princess during her stay in hospital.

Kensington Palace said it was unlikely that Princess Kate would return to public duties before Easter.

Her convalescence therefore continues.

Other members of the royal family have also experienced medical problems in recent months. King Charles III underwent an additional medical procedure at the same hospital for treatment of an enlarged prostate. This benign condition, which affects thousands of men every year, is not unusual. After his treatment, the king will have to rest for a short period.
