Kate Middleton recently had abdominal surgery.

“It’s total nonsense,” a palace source told an outlet when asked about the assertions made on Spanish TV. “No attempt was made by that journalist to fact-check anything that she said with anyone in the household."

"It’s fundamentally, totally made-up, and I’ll use polite English here: it’s absolutely not the case," the insider added.

A Spanish journalist claimed Kate Middleton was in a 'coma.'

Journalist Concha Calleja said the Princess of Wales was in "great danger," and she had "spoken to an aide from the royal household in a completely off-the-record manner."

“The doctors had to take drastic decisions at that moment because of the complications that arose,” Calleja claimed. “The decision was to put her (Kate) in an induced coma. They had to intubate her. There were serious complications that they didn’t expect because the operation went well, but the postoperative period didn’t go so well. The concern in the royal household was palpable. It was about saving her life.”

Prince William is expected to care for Kate Middleton during her recovery.

While Kate is recuperating from home, Prince William is expected to take care of her and their children. OK! previously reported former royal butler Grant Harrold discussed the couple's dynamic in an interview.

“Like any family, it’s always wonderful when a loved one is able to come back home," Harrold said. "I’m sure the kids are really excited to have Kate back."

Kate Middleton won't return to public duties until after Easter.

Harrold believes William will wait on his wife “hand and foot" during this time period.

“He’s a very caring, very loving kind of character and I noticed that a lot when I spent time with them both back in the day,” he recalled. “I’ve no doubt that wouldn’t have changed, William will make sure Kate is cared for and that she has a quick recovery.”
