Kensington Palace announced Kate’s discharge, adding that she has returned home to Windsor, BBC News reported.

The statement released by the Royal Family said she was making “good progress.”

She left the London Clinic private hospital without a public appearance, the BBC reported.

The clinic is the same hospital where King Charles III was admitted for a procedure to correct an enlarged prostate. That surgery was done on Friday and he is said to be doing well. He was discharged on Monday.

The palace still has not specified what surgery the princess had, other than saying it was abdominal and that she will have several weeks off to recover.

The procedure was planned, Kensington Palace officials said. The condition it’s meant to treat is supposed to be non-cancerous, according to CNN and The Associated Press.

Kensington Palace said in a statement posted Jan. 17, the day after Kate’s surgery, that it “was successful, and it is expected that she will remain in hospital for 10 to 14 days, before returning home to continue her recovery. Based on the current medical advice, she is unlikely to return to public duties until after Easter.”

Despite the procedure being planned, the princess had several appearances that had been scheduled which needed to be postponed while she was hospitalized and through the recovery process.

Prince William also postponed his appearances to care for the couple’s three children and to support Kate.
