It should come as no surprise at all that Kate Middleton’s hospitalization has proven a meteoric talking point for media outlets around the world.
Part of what makes the public so curious as to the circumstances – aside from the fact that Kate is the future Queen of England – is the lack of information from the Royal Family. Kensington Palace issued an announcement that she had indeed gone in for abdominal surgery, but a lot of the whys remain unclear even now, a week after that fact. Now, that’s par for the course where the British royals are concerned, but that doesn’t mean people haven’t been left wondering just what was wrong with Kate that required surgery to fix, and just how serious it is that it would leave her in hospital for up to two weeks. The hospitalization of Kate Middleton has understandably been a cause for concern for her many fans worldwide. Not only was the matter sudden and unexpected – despite Kensington Palace’s claim that it had been ‘planned’ – but information regarding what Kate was actually suffering from has been scarce.
