In case you hadn't noticed, Kate Middleton has been on a prolonged and much-discussed break from royal duties following her abdominal surgery in January. And despite the Palace making it abundantly clear that she'd be absent, everyone's spiraling. I mean, to be fair, that photoshopped pic and missing ring haven't helped!

Anyway, if you're wondering exactly when the Princess of Wales will make her triumphant return back to the spotlight, it could actually be sooner than expected. According to The Telegraph, Kate "has not ruled out making a return to the public eye on Easter Sunday," and might even join the rest of the royals for their annual walk to St George’s Chapel.

Kate hasn't made a "final decision" about whether she'll join the family (a source notes there's “no confirmation either way”), but this definitely seems like a good opportunity to soft launch her return ahead of the royals' Easter break. If the Princess of Wales does attend Easter services, it would be her first public appearance since Christmas Day—not counting the two times she was photographed by paparazzi in a car.

Meanwhile, an insider tells Us Weekly that people will have to wait for Kate to speak about her health. Per a source who's close to the Princess, she'll "likely be ready to talk about it" after Easter, when “doing a royal walkabout and meeting and greeting members of the public.”

The insider adds that “Nobody at the palace knows what the exact medical condition Kate has been suffering with. But Kate is a very transparent person. She’s not really capable of lying but at this stage and just wants her privacy.”
