The Royal aides have categorically dismissed false reports suggesting that Kate Middleton, was in a coma with her life hanging in the balance.
After Princess of Wales underwent abdominal surgery in January, journalist Concha Calleja made an untrue statement on the widely-watched Spanish news program Fiesta, asserting that Princess Kate was in a coma due to complications, as reported by The Times.
"The doctors had to take drastic decisions at that moment because of the complications that arose," she said, according to The Times.
She added, “The decision was to put her in an induced coma. They had to intubate her. There were serious complications that they didn’t expect because the operation went well, but the postoperative period didn’t go so well."
Calleja conveyed that Kate faced “great danger” after the surgery, stating that a "practically an entire hospital" setup was established within the royal residence for her recovery.
This report was subsequently picked up by various Spanish media outlets.
However, the Palace source denied the claims and said to The Times, “It’s total nonsense," adding, "No attempt was made by that journalist to fact-check anything that she said with anyone in the household. It’s fundamentally, totally made-up, and I’ll use polite English here: it’s absolutely not the case."
On January 17, Kensington Palace disclosed that the Princess of Wales had undergone a scheduled abdominal surgery at The London Clinic on the preceding day.
Although the specific diagnosis remained undisclosed, it has been confirmed as noncancerous.
The palace further reported that the surgical procedure was deemed "successful." Nevertheless, the recovery process necessitated her stay at the hospital for an estimated two weeks.
After spending 13 days at The London Clinic, Princess Kate has now returned to her home in Windsor on Monday, where she will continue her recuperation.
The palace has indicated that she is not anticipated to resume royal duties until after the Easter period.
