Palace has been warned to carefully weigh its options as it continues to maintain secrecy around Kate Middleton’s health.

Speculations went rife about the Princess of Wales’ whereabouts due to her prolonged absence from the public eye since undergoing abdominal surgery.

Kensington Palace recently released a statement reiterating on the recovering health of the future Queen, however, it wasn’t enough to satisfy the royal watchers.

Speaking on TalkTV’s The Royal Tea, royal expert Jack Royston urged the rep for princess to “work overtime to be as candid and open about absolutely everything that they can be candid and open about” to avoid fueling suspicions.

"I think what the palace needs to be really careful of here is that it's starting to look like they're being very secretive about quite a lot of things,” he said.

Royston suggested they release a photo of Kate, prompting agreement from The Times' royal editor, Kate Mansey, who added: “It's that secrecy, that people feel like they haven't seen her, and the problem with the kind of PR strategy of saying nothing at all is that people try and fill that vacuum on social media and then conspiracy theories abound."
