Princess of Wales continues to ‘be doing well’ following abdominal surgery

The Princess of Wales continues to ‘be doing well’ in her recuperation from major surgery earlier this year.

This latest confirmation of her health came after questions were raised about her condition following a sudden decision by the Prince of Wales to miss an event.

Prince William had been due to attend a memorial service for King Constantine II of Greece, his godfather, on February 27th 2024. The Order of Service, published just moments beforehand, show the Prince was expected to do a reading.

However, with minutes to go until royal guests began arriving at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor, it was announced that the heir to the throne would miss the service for personal reasons.

This led to questions about the health of the Princess who has been resting at home in Windsor for a month following a two week hospital stay for abdominal surgery in mid January.

However, it is understood that the Princess of Wales continues to be doing well in her recovery.

King Charles was forced to miss the service as he continues to receive treatment for cancer.

Queen Camilla led the Royal Family with the Princess Royal, the Duke of York and the Duke of Kent all in attendance as well as Princess Beatrice and Princess Alexandra.

King Felipe of Spain, Constantine’s nephew, was also there as was his wife, Queen Letizia, and his parents, King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia.

Princess Benedikte represented the Danish royal family.

Queen Anne-Marie, widow of King Constantine, led her family at the service alongside their eldest son, Crown Prince Pavlos. Their other four children – Princess Alexia, Prince Nikolaos, Prince Philippos and Princess Theodora – were all present along with their respective families.

King Constantine died in Greece in January 2023. He had returned to the country in his later years after going into exile. The Greek monarchy was abolished following a referendum.
