The Princess is not expected to return until after Easter

Princess Kate “shouldn’t rush” back to frontline royal duties to offer support to a stretched Firm, according to a royal author.

A return is not expected until after Easter for Kate as she continues to recover from planned abdominal surgery.

Prince William had taken time off to support his family after the operation on January 16, but has since been thrust back onto the frontline after his father’s cancer diagnosis compounded the Royal Family’s logistical issues.

Angela Levin spoke on GB News about the prospect of Princess Kate cutting short her recovery and perhaps carrying out duties while not at 100 per cent, a suggestion rubbished by the royal author.

Kate has reportedly visited the King alongside her husband, but Levin believes this should not be taken as a sign that she is capable of returning to work.

“It’s wonderful news”, she told GB News.

“I think it’s lovely and we wish her all the best. You mustn’t rush it, but it’s very kind that they want to visit the King so soon after they’ve arrived into Sandringham.”

GB News presenter Ellie Costello waded in on the discussion to comment: “It feels like a real family coming together to support.”

Well-wishes have flooded in for Kate and Charles over their recent health matters.

Prince William spoke out last week at a fundraising dinner on the Royal Family’s recent health troubles where he thanked the public for their “kind messages of support”.

He told the guests “It means a great deal to us all.”

His first day back on duty gave his pre-dinner speech at the event where he was raising funds for London’s Air Ambulance Charity’s new fleet of helicopters.

Guests included Hollywood star Tom Cruise and Arsenal football club manager Mikel Arteta.

The Prince said: “I’d like to take this opportunity to say thank you, also, for the kind messages of support for Catherine and for my father, especially in recent days. It means a great deal to us all.

“It’s fair to say the past few weeks have had a rather medical focus, so I thought I’d come to an air ambulance function to get away from it all.”

When William first arrived at Raffles London, a luxury hotel in Westminster, a member of the press called out some words of support and the prince acknowledged them with a wave and replied: “We really appreciate everyone’s kind messages, thank you.”
