They told Page Six: "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 outlet also reiterated that the 42-year-old is 'doing well'.

The news comes about a month after Kate underwent a planned abdominal surgery at a private hospital in London.

According to a statement released by Kensington Palace on 17 January, Kate is expected to 'remain in hospital for ten to fourteen days' following the 'successful' procedure.

The message - delivered to the official Instagram page of Kate and her husband Prince William - added that the mother-of-three is 'unlikely to return to public duties until after Easter'.

A spokesperson said: "The Princess of Wales appreciates the interest this statement will generate.

"She hopes that the public will understand her desire to maintain as much normality for her children as possible; and her wish that her personal medical information remains private.

"Kensington Palace will, therefore, only provide updates on Her Royal Highness’ progress when there is significant new information to share.

"The Princess of Wales wishes to apologise to all those concerned for the fact that she has to postpone her upcoming engagements.

"She looks forward to reinstating as many as possible, as soon as possible."

Kensington Palace released a statement about the Princess' health last month.

The Palace hasn't yet confirmed what health condition the princess was being treated for, but it confirmed that her condition was non-cancerous.

It is highly likely that her husband - and heir to the British throne - will in turn postpone several of the royal engagements they were to attend together.

Instead, the Prince of Wales will spend the coming weeks supporting his family - including his three children, Prince George, 10, Princess Charlotte, eight, and Prince Louis, five, as his wife continues to recover from her procedure.

William's official duties won't likely return to the schedule until Kate is better, with officials providing a revised schedule for him in the coming weeks.

Kate is close to her family, and her parents Carole and Michael Middleton and sibling Pippa Matthews and James Middleton are set to rally round and help support her recovery at the Wales’ home in Windsor.

Neither of the pair will travel overseas in the coming weeks.
