The bad news is that Kate reportedly feels that by taking the time to recover, she is letting both her family and her country down.

A source close to the situation says Lifestyle that Kate is putting intense pressure on herself to return to her royal duties.

“Although no one is pressuring Kate to do anything other than recover, she still feels a lot of pressure to return to her duties and be even more perfect than before,” the source says.

“She is taking time to recover, but caring for her children, being a good wife to William and her responsibility towards her job weigh heavily on Kate.”

There were initial hopes that Kate could be back in the spotlight in time for Easter. But the schedule was adjusted for reasons that are still not entirely clear.

Kate is inspired by her late grandmother-in-law’s work ethic

Kate was quite close to the late Queen Elizabeth II, whose work ethic was legendary.

That could be one reason he’s in a hurry to “get back into the swing of things,” the source says.

But Kate is also a supporter of the late queen’s “never complain, never explain” policy. And that means she probably won’t offer many updates on her condition.

“She doesn’t want the world to see her like that. And she doesn’t want to further delay her return to working as a royal either,” the source says.

It has been difficult to give details about Kate’s condition, but the source says Kate is receiving treatment and devoting her time and energy to her children.

“The princess is still undergoing treatment, which is exhausting,” the source explains.

“Kate’s first instinct as a mother is to give her full attention to George, Charlotte and Louis,” the source adds. “But she’s struggling trying to do it all.”

We wish Kate all the best as she continues her road to recovery.
