It’s been two months since Kate Middleton, the Princess of Wales, was last seen in public and the Palace has been heavily criticized for keeping her medical record as secret.

What has been revealed following her “planned” abdominal surgery was that her condition was noncancerous and that she had cleared her schedule and won’t be returning to her royal duties until Easter.

With speculation continues to grow online following a string of royal health scares, including King Charles’ cancer diagnosis, a Palace spokesperson sought to reassure well-wishers stating, “Kensington Palace made it clear in January the timelines of the princess’ recovery and we’d only be providing significant updates. That guidance stands,” adding that the Princess continues to do well.

Royal experts, however, warn the royals to be more open with the public. They ask why Prince William was absent from his godfather’s, the late King Constantine of Greece, memorial which was attributed to an unspecified “personal reason.”

He pulled out of the major event less than an hour before it started although it was happening in his own backyard and he was due to give a reading in front of many other European royals.

According to Phil Dampier, a royal biographer, the royals ‘have a right to privacy’ but ‘these are not normal times’ given the King’s and the Princess’ health scares, as per MailOnline. “I’m afraid that if no reason for Prince William pulling out at the last minute is given, there will inevitably be speculation, some of it wild and unfair, but that is the nature of social media these days,” he said. “There were lurid reports in a Greek publication the other day about Kate’s health, for which there is no evidence, but these rumours get circulated around the world quickly.”

He further added: “The Palace made it clear Kate is recovering well and we saw the King return to London from Windsor, possibly for treatment.

“But we still don’t know what urgent personal reason led William to cancel. I think he should be more open if the palace wants to avoid speculation.”

Is the Palace’s reassurance enough to keep the public at peace about Kate’s real health state? Many say it’s not, but until officals release more details we are to trust them that the Princess is indeed doing well.
