On Sunday, Kensington Palace released the first official photo of Catherine, the Princess of Wales, since her abdominal surgery in January.

The photo of Princess Catherine and her three children, Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis and Prince George, was taken by her husband, Prince William, at Windsor earlier this week.

The photo was released today in celebration of Mother’s Day in the UK. The princess also took the opportunity to thank the public for their “continued support” since her operation.

“Thank you for your kind wishes and continued support over the past two months. I wish everyone a happy Mother’s Day,” the message reads.

Catherine (42) was seen in public for the first time on Monday after undergoing stomach surgery in mid-January, according to photos by the American TMZ.

However, she will not resume her royal duties before Easter, reports BBC.

RNews previously reported that Catherine will attend her father-in-law, King Charles III’s birthday celebrations in June. This will be her first official appointment since her surgery.
