Where is Kate? Missing British royal has internet asking questions

The Princess of Wales, Kate Middleton, has not appeared in public in over two months.

The British Royal family spend most of their time in the public eye. 

They have various appearances and engagements to attend and show face at.

There also isn't usually anything that can really stop them from attending, it's part of the job.

So it is a cause for concern when one of them is no longer appearing as frequently as they used to.

Especially considering the royals' habit of keeping secrets.

According to a Kensington Palace official release, Kate Middleton, wife to Prince William, underwent abdominal surgery recently on the 16th of January and has been recovering at home since then.

Nobody has actually seen the Princess in months and this has caused the internet to do what it does best.

While Middleton is most likely still healing at home, the internet has fallen down a rabbit hole of possible conspiracy theories and jokes about why she "really" is being kept out of the public eye.

The most popular, and hilarious, theories thus far include:

  • Plastic/cosmetic surgery
  • Filming a reality competition show such as 'I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!'
  • Another baby
  • An embarrassing haircut/colour

While many people were concerned about her health after Prince William cancelled a royal engagement because of a personal matter, a royal aide has said that Kate is on the mend.
