Kate Middleton diagnosed with cancer, says she’s undergoing chemotherapy

The Princess of Wales, Kate Middleton, has been diagnosed with cancer and is undergoing chemotherapy.

The development was disclosed by Kate in a video she made and released on Friday.

While she is yet to disclose the type of cancer, Kate said she discovered it two months after she underwent “major” abdominal surgery.

She said, “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 I should undergo a course of preventative chemotherapy and I’m now in the early stages of that treatment. This of course came as a huge shock and Williams and I have been doing everything we can to process and manage this privately for the sake of our young family.

“As you can imagine this has taken time, it has taken me time to recover from major surgery to start my 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’m going to be okay, as I’ve said to them, I am well and getting stronger every day by focusing on other things that will help me heal in my mind, body, and spirits.

“Having Williams by my side is a great source of comfort and reassurance too as in the love, support, and kindness that has been shown by so many of you, it means so much to us both.”

She urged the general public to create space for privacy for her family while sending love to those who have been affected by cancer.
