On Monday, Kensington Palace said Kate had returned home and was “making good progress”.
She was driven away from the London Clinic and did not talk to the press or well-wishers.
“The Prince and Princess wish to say a huge thank you to the entire team at The London Clinic, especially the dedicated nursing staff, for the care they have provided,” the royal statement said.
“The Wales family continues to be grateful for the well wishes they have received from around the world.”
In contrast to the King’s very public revelation of his condition, the princess has been tight lipped about what caused her hospital stay beyond that it was surgery in the abdomen. However, the palace did confirm it was not cancer related.
She was expected to be out of the public eye for months - until after Easter - following her 13 night hospital stay.
However, The Sun reported sources as saying that the Princess of Wales’ could be back to her royal duties sooner and is eager to get back to work.
She is said to have plans to work from bed once she arrives home from her surgery.
