Although it was reported by the Palace that Kate Middleton’s recent abdominal surgery was a planned one, royal experts claim that it left Prince William bewildered. The reason for this is that he’s now expected to take some time off from his royal engagements, at least from part of them, in order to be able to take care of the children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, while Kate is recovering.
The Palace released a statement regarding Kate’s hospital stay, writing that she would be taking some time to recuperate and would return to her royal duties around Easter.
Of course, William will receive help from the children’s long-time nanny, Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo.
Borrallo has been with the family since Prince George was just 8 months old.
“She is not married and doesn’t have a boyfriend, as her life is totally dedicated to the family she is working with. She is known for being totally professional – married to the job,” an insider told Hello Magazine.
When the couple are away from home, the nanny makes all the decisions regarding the children.
Borallo was trained at the prestigious Norland College in Bath. “Maria is firm, but she never acts unilaterally with the children on discipline. Kate and William, along with Maria, are strict with the children but have this magic ability to appear not to be,” a royal insider said.
“Prince William is going to divide his time between looking after the children and being at his wife’s bedside, and therefore he won’t be carrying out public engagements either,” royal expert Jennie Bond said in an interview with GB News.
Further, Bond told OK! Magazine, “He’ll be feeling emotional, stressed and probably rather bewildered by this sudden turn of events.
“You can have every privilege in life but your health is paramount and beyond your control. William will certainly be there for the children. They want to keep things as normal as possible, so I’d expect William will be doing the school run, helping with homework, cooking and doing the bedtime routine.”
We wish Kate Middleton a speedy recovery.
