Kate Middleton's first appearance after surgery - see her post-operative look!

Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton was spotted for the first time since her abdominal surgery two months ago. Photographs captured her with her mother, Carol Middleton, in a black car near Windsor Castle, indicating her looking tired and exhausted wearing sunglasses, with her hair hanging to the side of her shoulder and donning a black coat, while her mother appeared calm while driving. This was the first time she had been photographed since December 25, 2023, when she attended the St. Mary Magdalene church in Norfolk, England, with her husband Prince William and their three children. She had surgery on January 16, 2024, and the statement released by Kensington Palace stated that the surgery was successful, and it was expected that she would remain in the hospital for ten to fourteen days before returning home to continue her recovery. However, she is unlikely to return to public duties until after Easter, as confirmed in the statement. Nonetheless, her whereabouts became a popular topic of conversation last week after Prince William left a memorial service for the late Greek king Constantine II "for personal reasons" that were not disclosed. A Kensington Palace spokesperson at the time stated that Middleton was "in good health," but this did not stop online chatter.
