Kate Middleton and Prince William Share First Joint Statement After Surgery

In a notable display of unity and solidarity, Kate Middleton and Prince William, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, have released their first joint statement as the Princess of Wales continues her recovery from planned abdominal surgery. The announcement, made through Kensington Palace’s official channels and accompanied by a video posted on social media platforms, marks a significant moment for the royal couple.

The statement, which was shared on X, formerly known as Twitter and Instagram, conveyed the couple’s pride in their roles as Colonel and Colonel-in-Chief of two esteemed regiments, the Welsh Guards and 1st The Queen’s Dragoon Guards. It coincided with the celebration of St David’s Day, a special occasion for the people of Wales.

“Proud to be Colonel and Colonel-in-Chief of the Welsh Guards and 1st The Queen’s Dragoon Guards. Happy St David’s Day!” the statement read, reflecting the couple’s commitment to their ceremonial roles within the armed forces.

The significance of this joint statement is underscored by the recent health challenges faced by Kate Middleton, who underwent planned abdominal surgery. The Princess of Wales, appointed as Colonel-in-Chief of 1st The Queen’s Dragoon Guards by King Charles in August 2023, is currently recuperating while receiving the support of her family and medical team.

Meanwhile, Prince William assumed the role of Colonel of the Welsh Guards in December 2022, further solidifying the couple’s ties to the military community.
