Prince William recently shared an update on Kate Middleton’s health, expressing his gratitude towards the “amazing and kind” Filipino nurses who cared for the Princess of Wales during her hospital stay. The heartfelt acknowledgment came during a conversation with Patricia Spruce, who was honored with an MBE for her significant contributions to recruiting international medical staff for the NHS.
Spruce, sharing the details of her interaction with Prince William on LinkedIn, revealed that she inquired about Kate’s well-being. Prince William’s response highlighted the exceptional care and kindness provided by the two Filipino nurses who played a pivotal role in Kate’s recovery process.
This conversation marked the first time Prince William has publicly discussed Kate’s health since resuming his royal responsibilities. The Prince took a brief hiatus from his duties to be by his wife’s side as she recuperated.
Furthermore, Ellen White, another recipient of an MBE, recounted her experience of extending her “best wishes” to Kate and the King during the ceremony. According to GB News, White felt that her gesture was warmly received by Prince William, who expressed sincere appreciation for the well-wishes directed towards his family.
Amidst these developments, Prince William, alongside Queen Camilla, has assumed a more prominent role in the monarchy’s day-to-day affairs. This temporary adjustment comes as King Charles focuses on his recovery following the commencement of his cancer treatment. The 75-year-old monarch has opted to retreat to Sandringham for his recovery period, postponing all public engagements while continuing to manage off-the-public tasks.
King Charles’s treatment began earlier this week in London, where he is undergoing outpatient care for cancer. As the royal family navigates through these challenging times, the support and well-wishes from individuals like Spruce and White, along with the dedication of healthcare professionals, provide a source of comfort and strength.
