The Princess of Wales had abdominal surgery at The London Clinic in January

Princess Kate is in "no rush" to leave Adelaide Cottage, a royal commentator has claimed, following Kensington Palace's fresh statement.

The Princess of Wales underwent "successful" planned abdominal surgery in January, and the Palace announced she was "doing well" earlier this week.

A spokesperson for the Princess of Wales issued a fresh statement on Thursday to reiterate that Kate, 42, will not return to royal duties until at least after Easter.

They said: "We were very clear from the outset that the Princess of Wales was out until after Easter and Kensington Palace would only be providing updates when something was significant."

The mother-of-three is recuperating at Adelaide Cottage in Windsor, where she lives with Prince William, 41, and her three children, Prince George, 10, Princess Charlotte, eight, and Prince Louis, five.

The four-bedroom cottage is located in Windsor Great Park, a stone's throw away from Windsor Castle and Royal Lodge, where Prince Andrew lives with Sarah Ferguson.

Royal commentator Jennie Bond explained whether Kate and William might want a bigger property than Adelaide Cottage with more space.

She said: "I’m not sure William And Kate will be that fussed about the situation.

"They chose Adelaide cottage because they wanted to give the children a more normal lifestyle."

Bond pointed out that the Prince and Princess of Wales have multiple properties.

She added: "Of course, they still have the apartment at Kensington Palace, and they have a large house in Norfolk.

"So they are well acquainted with a grand lifestyle, and perhaps living in a relatively normal four bedroom house isn’t such a bad option."

The royal commentator suggested the possibility of one day moving to Royal Lodge.

She continued telling OK!: "As the children grow up, though, and want friends to stay… or William and Kate want family to stay, they might find it a bit of a squeeze and would be grateful for the space at Royal Lodge.

"For now, though, I don’t think there’s a great rush."
