The first official photo of the Princess of Wales since her abdominal surgery in January has been released by Kensington Palace.

The image, taken by Prince William earlier this week, shows the princess with her three children.

The photo is accompanied by a Mother's Day message along with a "thank you" from the princess for the public's "continued support".

She is not expected to return to public duties before Easter.

In a message shared on social media, Catherine said: "Thank you for your kind wishes and continued support over the last two months.

"Wishing everyone a Happy Mother's Day."

Catherine, 42, spent 13 nights at the London Clinic, near Regent's Park in central London, following the surgery.

The Palace has shared few details about her condition, which has garnered significant social media speculation, but has said it is not cancer-related.

It said it would only provide updates on her recovery when there was significant new information to share.
