Kate Middleton made her first public appearance since December after undergoing planned abdominal surgery earlier this year. 

Photographs obtained by The Post show the 42-year-old Princess of Wales seated in the passenger seat of an Audi, driven by her mother, Carole, near Windsor Castle.

In an attempt to maintain a low profile, she wore sunglasses and displayed a slight smile. 

Speculation regarding Middleton's whereabouts has circulated widely on the internet, prompting Kensington Palace to address the issue. 

In a statement to The Post, Middleton's representative stated, "Kensington Palace made it clear in January the timelines of the princess’ recovery and we’d only be providing significant updates. That guidance stands."

The representative further assured that the mother of three, is "doing well" as she continues her recovery.

Rumors surrounding her condition have surged in recent weeks, fueled by various conspiracy theories circulating on social media platforms. 

Speculations range from drastic changes in her appearance, such as growing "mishap bangs," to more serious allegations like her absence due to falling into a coma. 

Adding to the speculation, Prince William's sudden cancellation of his attendance at his godfather's church service citing "personal reasons" only intensified the rumors.

However, these claims have been refuted by a spokesperson for the Royal Family.
