Buckingham Palace hits out 'madness' surrounding wild Kate rumours

Social media has been ablaze with different theories on why Kate Middleton hasn't been seen in public since Christmas.

Buckingham Palace has hit out at the "madness of social media" following countless rumours about Kate Middleton, who the public hasn't seen since Christmas Day last year.

The Princess of Wales underwent abdominal surgery in January and it was announced at the time that she would be unable to work until after Easter, since then very little has been said by the Palace about Kate, which has sent social media ablaze with rumours.

"We were really clear from the start we weren’t going to provide a running commentary on the Princess of Wales’s health and only provide significant updates," the Palace said in a statement.

"Obviously, we’ve seen the madness of social media and that is not going to change our strategy. There has been much on social media but the Princess has a right to privacy and asks the public to respect that.

"We remind you of the statement in January where it was the Princess of Wales’s wish her medical information would remain private."

Prince William sent tongues wagging when he unexpectedly dropped out of an event in tribute to his late godfather, Greece's late King Constantine, which was taking place at Windsor Castle on Tuesday, very close to his family's home, Adelaide Cottage, where Kate is recuperating.

Kensington Palace stated at the time that the Prince of Wales ditched the event due to a "personal matter", with many believing it was due to his wife Kate's health.

They reiterated that the Princess is "doing well".
