The Princess of Wales needs "time and support to renew her strength"

The "recovery isolation" that Princess Kate is facing will be difficult despite the support from Prince William and the Middleton family, a health expert has exclusively told GB News.

The Princess of Wales underwent planned abdominal surgery in January, and is now resting at Adelaide Cottage as she is not expected to return to royal duties until at least after Easter.

According to Mike Laauwe, the founder of Positive Thinking Mind, Kate will be finding aspects of her recuperation "difficult".

In an exclusive interview with GB News, Laauwe said: "Kate's recent surgery and recovery serve as a reminder that even the most privileged among us remain vulnerable when it comes to health.

"Recovery's isolation can weigh heavily despite loving support."

The princess, 42, is thought to be cared for by her parents, Carole and Michael Middleton, and her siblings, Pippa and James Middleton.

The entire Middleton family lives in the Berkshire area, near Adelaide Cottage in Windsor Great Park.

Laauwe added: "It’s important for Kate and anyone overcoming trauma to have care addressing both physical healing and emotional challenges."

Kensington Palace chose not to disclose private medical details about Kate's surgery, only referring to the operation as "successful".

The mother-of-three spent 13 days in the London Clinic before returning home for her convalescence.

Laauwe continued: "A balanced approach is vital– nurturing the body and mind.

"I hope Kate gets the time and support she needs to renew her strength - on her own timeline."

Prince William announced he would temporarily step back from royal duties to care for his wife during her recuperation.

The Prince of Wales, 41, has since returned to royal duties, having visited the British Red Cross headquarters last week.

The father-of-three is currently busy caring for his wife at Adelaide Cottage and also their children, Prince George, 10, Princess Charlotte, eight, and Prince Louis, five.
