Video: Kate Middleton Reveals She Has Cancer

The Princess of Wales, Kate Middleton, has disclosed that she is receiving cancer treatment.

The announcement follows weeks of conjecture on the 42-year-old future queen’s health. She hasn’t been spotted performing official duties since Christmas.

Kate, the Princess of Wales, has disclosed that she is receiving prophylactic chemotherapy after receiving a cancer diagnosis.

Kate Middleton, the Princess of Wales received a cancer diagnosis and made her condition known to the public.

Kate Middleton revealed in a heartfelt video message that the cancer was found during her major abdominal surgery at the London Clinic at the beginning of the year.

Seated on a garden bench in a blue jumper with white stripes and blue pants, Kate Middleton explained that she needed some time to process the news and tell her kids, Prince George, 10, Princess Charlotte, 8, and Prince Louis, 5, before announcing it to the public.

The 42-year-old stated in a private message that her planned abdominal surgery in January went well, despite the initial belief that her illness was not cancerous.

She added, “This of course came as a huge shock, and William and I have been doing everything we can to process and manage this privately for the sake of our young family,” but testing following the surgery revealed cancer had been present.

Doctors had urged George, Charlotte, and Louis’ mother to have a course of preventative chemotherapy and she is currently in the early stages of that particular treatment.

“It has taken me time to recover from major surgery in order to start my treatment,” she said.

She said: “It has been an incredibly tough couple of months for our entire family, but I’ve had a fantastic medical team who have taken great care of me, for which I am so grateful.

“In January, I underwent major abdominal surgery in London and at the time, it was thought that my condition was non-cancerous.

“The surgery was successful. However, tests after the operation found cancer had been present. My medical team therefore advised that I should undergo a course of preventative chemotherapy and I am now in the early stages of that treatment.”

“But, most importantly, it has taken us time to explain everything to George, Charlotte and Louis in a way that is appropriate for them, and to reassure them that I am going to be okay.

“As I have said to them; I am well and getting stronger every day by focusing on the things that will help me heal; in my mind, body and spirits.”

She said that having Prince William by her side was a “great source of comfort and reassurance,” and she continued, “It means much to us both that so many of you have shown love, support, and kindness.”

It’s unclear when the princess’s chemotherapy will end, but it started in late February.

Kensington Palace declared that it will not disclose the cancer’s nature, saying, “The princess has a right to medical privacy, as we all do.”

The princess’s return to formal duties is also unknown; the palace stated that she will resume her responsibilities “when she is cleared to do so by her medical team.”

Meanwhile, Prince William will “keep striking a balance between providing for his wife and family and keeping his official duties, as he has done since the start of the year”, Kensington palace said.

Since being photographed on a Christmas Day stroll in Sandringham, Norfolk, with other members of the Royal Family in late December, Kate Middleton has not been spotted at any official events.

After the future queen’s extended absence fueled suspicion and conspiracy theories on social media worldwide, a Mother’s Day photo of her with her three children went viral. However, the photo’s editing quickly caused the fervor to flare up again.

An onlooker described the princess as “super happy” and “relaxed” in a video that The Sun published earlier this week of the couple visiting a farm shop near Windsor.

Less than two months have passed since King Charles, 75, said he had been stricken with cancer. Kate’s condition has now been confirmed.

It is unclear what kind of cancer he has or what stage it is at, but it developed after receiving treatment for an enlarged prostate in the hospital.
