The day before the princess left hospital, Calleja – who regularly appears on the channel as a royalty expert – claimed that doctors should have intervened quickly after the operation to “save her life”. Serious complications had arisen unexpectedly, the journalist believed. “The operation went well, but after that it went downhill,” he said. Calleja told the audience that Kate was therefore put into an induced coma, and that a breathing machine helped her breathe. The impressive ‘news’ quickly went viral, and was also adopted by several major news sites – such as ‘El Confidencial’ and ‘La Razon’.
“This is total nonsense,” says a palace source in ‘The Telegraph’. “The journalist has made no attempt to verify her statements with the family. It’s completely made up.” Calleja claims she obtained the information from a palace aide, but Buckingham Palace has now refuted that too.
The palace announced on Monday that the Princess of Wales had left hospital. After a two-week stay, she will continue her recovery at home in Windsor. It is still not clear what exactly her abdominal surgery entailed, but the problem now seems to have been resolved. “She is making good progress,” the royal family spokesperson reassured.
A few hours after Kate’s discharge, King Charles was also allowed to say goodbye to the hospital. He stayed there for three days after prostate surgery. Queen Camilla accompanied her husband out, both with big smiles. He is also doing well, Camilla told the press on Wednesday.
