Kate Middleton Made Her First Post-Surgery Statement for U.K. Mother's Day

And shared a new photo with George, Charlotte, and Louis.



Conspiracy theorists can relax, Kate Middleton is at home with her children following her abdominal surgery — and there's photographic evidence to prove it. 

On Sunday, the Princess of Wales broke her silence since undergoing her planned surgery in January with a new statement and a new photo with her three children — George, Charlotte, and Louis — in honor of Mother's Day in the U.K. In her first official post-surgery snapshot, which was taken by Prince William earlier this week, Middleton can be seen sitting in a chair smiling with her arms around her kids.  

"Thank you for your kind wishes and continued support over the last two months," Middleton wrote, before signing off her personal message to fans with, "Wishing everyone a Happy Mother’s Day. C."
