A Palace source has given their verdict after Princess Kate was seen alongside Prince William this weekend.

Princess Kate was spotted at a farm shop in Windsor walking alongside her husband and was described as looking “happy and healthy.”

A source has suggested that her appearance should put an end to the public speculation about Kate’s whereabouts and conspiracy theories spreading on social media.

The footage shows Princess Kate walking with Prince William in the sunshine on Saturday afternoon.

Kate was dressed casually in black leggings with socks and trainers and a zip-up hoodie while wearing her hair loose.

A palace source told The Telegraph: “Finally everyone can calm down.”

Princess Kate has been recovering from an abdominal operation since January but has not been officially pictured at any public engagements since Christmas Day 2023.

For Mother’s Day, the Prince and Princess of Wales released a photograph of Kate and her three children amidst rising speculation about her health and whereabouts.

But after it was revealed that the photograph had been digitally edited, rumours continued to circulate on social media.

There was a huge surge in interest in the princess as Google Trends data revealed that worldwide ‘Kate Middleton’ searches reached a five-year high and soared by 1,566 percent compared to on average.

A spokesperson for William was pushed to speak out for the prince saying that “his focus is on his work and not on social media.”

A Kensington Palace statement on January 17 confirmed that Kate will be off “until after Easter” as she recovers from an abdominal operation.
