Kate Middleton is 'on the mend' and has left Windsor for first time since her operation

EDEN CONFIDENTIAL: This has been a worrying week for royalists, with Buckingham Palace announcing on Monday that King Charles had been diagnosed with cancer . So I’m delighted to bring some cheering health news. The Princess of Wales , who underwent ‘successful’ planned abdominal surgery more than three weeks ago, is on the mend. And, in a clear sign of her improvement, she was able to join her husband, Prince William , and their three children as they set off yesterday morning for a half-term holiday on the Sandringham estate in Norfolk, where the King is also convalescing. ‘Catherine is recovering well,’ a friend tells me. ‘She was looking forward to a change of scene and will be able to take it easy in Norfolk while the children let off steam with William.’ The Princess, 42, was discharged 12 days ago from the London Clinic, where she had spent almost two weeks. In the only Kensington Palace statement about her health, a spokesman said on January 17 that, ‘based on the current medical advice, she is unlikely to return to public duties until after Easter ‘.
