As the Princess of Wales will spend the next two to three months recovering from the surgery, royal correspondent Michael Cole said that Kate Middleton is "young and vigorous and very fit", stressing that the news is "not a trivial matter and is obviously quite serious".

“She has very conscientiously added in that quite full statement from Kensington Palace much more so than one would have perhaps expected on another occasion,” the royal expert said, explaining, "It's going to be a long stay in hospital afterwards - these days they get the patients out of hospital as soon as possible back on their feet. So that also does indicate the seriousness of the nature of whatever it is that is ailing her."

The royal correspondent added that it would be "unwise" for royal fans to speculate as Kensington Palace has said that it will bring out "more details" as they deem fit.

Praising Kate Middleton, the royal expert said, "I'm certainly sure that the Princess of Wales, because this is a very private matter as far as she's concerned and her husband's concerned, wouldn't want that. The fact is it's happened. It happened yesterday, they've announced it today. I think that that is entirely commendable and right."
