The senior royal member is expected to remain in the hospital for “ten to fourteen days before returning home to continue her recovery,” they wrote, adding:

“Based on the current medical advice, she is unlikely to return to public duties until after Easter.”

Middleton, whose condition is reportedly “not cancerous,” hopes to maintain normalcy during these times for the sake of her children and wishes that her personal medical information be kept private.
