The Princess of Wales’s recovery from surgery has taken some unexpected turns.

Kate Middleton had surgery, and what’s followed have been rumors, controversies and conspiracy theories. The latest: an investigation into whether Middleton’s personal medical records were illegally accessed by a hospital staff member.

Much has been made about the Princess of Wales’s absence from public life in the United Kingdom as she recovers from a January abdominal surgery, according to Kensington Palace. Almost immediately there was speculation as to what she was really being treated for and a report, blasted by palace insiders, that there had been surgical complications.

The chatter was made much worse by Middleton. A botched editing job on a family photo shared to social media — in hopes of calming conspiracy theories — only fueled them. A frenzy developed over Middleton’s health, whereabouts and photo editing, which has been called Katespiracy. Folks on both sides of the pond have been asking: Where is Kate Middleton?

In recent days, there was the first real glimpse — Middleton and Prince William at a farmers’ market — but even that sighting has fed into the conspiracy theories. Now there’s the hospital records breach probe.


Here’s a timeline of what’s been happening, from the princess’s last public appearance in December 2023 through this new sighting and the drama over her photos:

Dec. 25, 2023: It’s seemingly a typical holiday as Middleton and Prince William attend a Christmas service with their three children as well as King Charles and Queen Camilla at St. Mary Magdalene Church at Sandringham, the royal family’s country home in Norfolk, England. Middleton, in a bright blue coat, is all smiles, greeting well-wishers along the way.
