First official photo of Princess of Wales released after abdominal surgery

The first official photograph of the Princess of Wales has been released since she underwent abdominal surgery in January.

The image of Kate and her children, taken in Windsor earlier this week by the Prince of Wales, was released on Mother’s Day as she thanked the public for their continued support following her operation.

Kate can be seen sitting and smiling with her arms wrapped around her younger children Prince Louis and Princess Charlotte, while eldest child Prince George stands behind his mother and hugs her.

In a message accompanying the photo on Instagram, Kate wrote: “Thank you for your kind wishes and continued support over the last two months.

“Wishing everyone a Happy Mother’s Day.”

The 42-year-old future queen was admitted to the London Clinic for a planned operation on 16 January.

The princess returned home from the private hospital after 13 days, and Kensington Palace said at the time the princess was “making good progress”.

Kate has not been seen in public since she joined other members of the Royal Family for a Christmas Day walk, though US celebrity news site TMZ published a photo of her on 4 March which is understood to have been taken by unauthorised paparazzi.

In the photo, which TMZ said was taken near Windsor Castle, Kate wore dark sunglasses and sat in the passenger seat of a black Audi being driven by her mother, Carole Middleton.
