Kate Middleton has ventured out of Windsor for the first time since her scheduled abdominal surgery, with a friend of the future queen stating she is “recovering.”
The 42-year-old Princess of Wales has been resting at the royal residence since she was released from the London Clinic on Monday, Jan. 29.
The mother of three spent nearly two weeks in the hospital following a procedure to address an unspecified condition.
She is now enjoying a half-term holiday with Prince William, 41, and their three children, George, 10, Charlotte, 8, and Louis, 5, at Sandringham, 127 miles away from Windsor.
“Catherine is recuperating well,” an anonymous friend informed the Daily Mail.
“She was eager for a change of scenery and will be able to relax in Norfolk while the children have fun with William.”
The tabloid also reports that King Charles, 75, is at Sandringham as well, having undergone his first cancer treatment earlier this week.
It remains uncertain whether Kate and Charles will meet as they deal with their respective health issues.
The health concerns of the pair sent the royal family into a crisis late last month.
On January 17., Kensington Palace issued a statement announcing that the princess had been admitted to the hospital for planned abdominal surgery and would be cancelling all scheduled royal engagements until Easter.
Just hours later, Buckingham Palace issued its own statement, announcing that King Charles would also be hospitalized for treatment for an enlarged prostate.
