He told Hello magazine: “With large wounds, we stitch the abdomen together, and the stitch is designed to last for six to nine months. So patients remain aware of some pulling sensation in the abdomen, because of the stitch, for a good six to nine months after.”

As Princess Kate recovers, her husband Prince William is said to be taking on the responsibilities of their children Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.
