Palace issues a statement on the bizarre Kate Middleton conspiracy theories

A royal spokesperson has spoken out to shut down the odd conspiracy theories and detective armchairs who've been asking 'where is Kate Middleton?' over the last few days (despite an earlier statement making quite plain that the Princess of Wales had undergone surgery and would be stepping away from her duties until at least Easter).

Hoping to clear up any confusion, the Kensington Palace rep referred back to their earlier statement in the new one shared with press.

"We were very clear from the outset that the Princess of Wales was out until after Easter and Kensington Palace would only be providing updates when something was significant," the spokesperson explained.

The Princess has not been seen in public since Christmas Day, when she was pictured attending a church service with her family.

In their previous statement (shared on 17 January), the Palace said that the Princess had undergone planned abdominal surgery and had asked the public to respect her privacy by not investigating her medical history and shared her hopes that life could continue on as normally as possible for the sake of her three children (Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis).

It's been a tumultuous time for the Royal Family of late, given that King Charles III, Kate's father-in-law, has also been facing health issues and recently announced that he had received an unexpected cancer diagnosis whilst being treated for an enlarged prostate.
