Princess Kate has been reunited with her children at Adelaide Cottage, where she will recover from abdominal surgery over the coming months. The announcement from Kensington Palace on Monday stated that the Princess of Wales is “making good progress” after being discharged from The London Clinic.

The details of hospital visits, aside from those by Prince William, have been kept private. Reports suggest an agreement between the media and the royal family to refrain from taking photos or camping outside the hospital. However, questions have arisen about whether Princess Kate’s children—Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis—visited her during her hospital stay.

Royal expert Daniela Elser finds the lack of information about the children’s visits peculiar and questions whether the royal family made the right decision. In an opinion piece, Elser highlights a crucial detail that seems to have been overlooked.

While reports initially suggested that Prince William visited Kate every day and that the children had also visited, later sources contradicted this information. Hello Magazine’s royal editor, Emily Nash, indicated that Princess Kate used FaceTime to stay in touch with her children during her hospitalization.

The family nanny, Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo, played a significant role in supporting Prince William and the children during Kate’s absence. Borrallo, who has been with the family since 2014, is known for her professionalism and dedication. Trained at Norland College in Bath, she makes decisions regarding the children based on the outlined wishes of William and Kate.

Parenting expert Jo Frost emphasized the importance of Borrallo’s role, stating that her nurturing ways provide stability for the children and allow William to be present as a father. As Kate returns home to Windsor, Maria’s continued support will likely be crucial during the recovery period.


Despite the media agreement to respect the family’s privacy during Kate’s hospitalization, the uncertainty about whether the royal children visited their mother has raised concerns. Elser questions the decision to keep the children away, especially during the weekend, suggesting that a visit to their mother could have provided comfort and reassurance.

As the royal family prioritizes family over other obligations during this challenging time, questions about the children’s absence during the hospital stay remain. Elser concludes by pondering whether keeping the children away aligns with the family’s commitment to “100 percent family first, day job second.” The article encourages readers to share well-wishes for Kate’s speedy recovery.
