Palace Source Slams Claim Princess Kate Middleton Was In A Coma Amid Health Scare: ‘Total Nonsense’

A palace source has shut down shocking claims about the Princess of Wales’ health. After a Spanish news program falsely reported that Kate Middleton was in an induced coma following alleged complications from her abdominal surgery, one royal insider set the record straight. “It’s total nonsense. No attempt was made by that journalist to fact-check anything that she said with anyone in the household,” the source told The Times of London. “It’s fundamentally, totally made-up, and I’ll use polite English here: it’s absolutely not the case.” The program’s anchor had reportedly claimed on-air that Kate’s life was in, quote, “great danger” and that efforts to save her included such “drastic” measures as setting up “practically an entire hospital” at her family’s Windsor home. The future queen consort was discharged from the London Clinic on Jan. 29, nearly two weeks after she was admitted for what Kensington Palace said was a “planned abdominal surgery.” Kate is expected to refrain from public duties until at least Easter while she continues her recovery. Details of her condition have been kept private but NBC News previously reported that the diagnosis is non-cancerous.
