It’s now been a month since Kate Middleton broke her silence, announcing her shocking cancer diagnosis. The Princess of Wales revealed she was in the early stages of preventative chemotherapy, but when she could make a return to royal duties is still unknown.

While Kate was initially recovering from her abdominal surgery and now undergoes chemotherapy, Prince William has taken on a huge responsibility. Not only has he, together with Queen Camilla, signed up for more royal responsibility, but he is also taking care of their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, at home.

The royals have stayed quiet about Kate Middleton following her cancer announcement. Queen Camilla mentioned her while out on royal duty a few weeks ago, but other than that, it has been quiet up until now. Prince William spoke with a royal fan while out on royal duty earlier this week – and according to a royal expert, his words included a hidden message about how Kate Middleton is really doing.

On March 22, Kate Middleton decided to bring all conspiracy theories and rumors to a close. In a pre-recorded video, the Princess of Wales revealed that she was in the early stages of preventative chemotherapy after being diagnosed with cancer.

What type of cancer, however, was not disclosed.

“I wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you, personally, for all the wonderful messages of support and for your understanding whilst I have been recovering from surgery. 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,” Kate began in the video.

Kate Middleton – cancer diagnosis

The Princess of Wales explained that at the time she underwent the abdominal surgery, it was thought that her condition was non-cancerous, and the surgery was successful. However, when undergoing tests after the operation, doctors found that cancer had been present.

Kate Middleton continued, “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. 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.”

“As you can imagine, this has taken time. It has taken me time to recover from major surgery in order 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 am going to be OK. 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.”

The Princess of Wales continued praising her husband, Prince William, saying it is a “great source of comfort and reassurance” having him by her side. Further, Kate asked the public for privacy moving forward.

“We hope that you will understand that, as a family, we now need some time, space and privacy while I complete my treatment. My work has always brought me a deep sense of joy and I look forward to being back when I am able. But for now I must focus on making a full recovery.”

Kate Middleton has stayed quiet because of her husband, royal expert claims

“For everyone facing this disease, in whatever form, please do not lose faith or hope. You are not alone,” the princess said.

Before Kate MIddleton revealed her cancer diagnosis, conspiracy theories, some more bizarre than others, spread across the internet.

Even so, the Princess of Wales decided to stay quiet. However, according to one expert, another person had an essential role.

In an interview with GB News, author Alexander Larman argued that the conspiracies surrounding Kate Middleton showed that the world is “obsessed by the health of the royal family,” and “look to them so set an example.”

Moreover, Larman claimed that Kate stayed quiet because of Prince William.

“The trolls have carried on to this day. But one thing that’s very interesting is if you look at the difference between the responses,” the author said. “Buckingham Palace came forward very quickly and gave a fairly candid idea of what’s happening with Charles with his illness, and Kensington Palace didn’t.”

“I think that’s because Prince William is much more into the vein of never complain, never explain, which was his great grandfather’s motto, and has always served the Royal Family well,” Alexander Larman continued.

“But it doesn’t hold up in 2024 because you’ve got to allow the idea the information is going to get out into the public, whether you like it or not.”

Recently, Prince William and Kate Middleton have been spending a lot of time at Anmer Hall at Sandringham. Their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, had a three-week break from school, and after all that happened with their mother, it was most likely very calming to get away from public attention and the media.

While royal fans worldwide are sending their well-wishes to Kate Middleton following her cancer diagnosis, just weeks later, it was a whole different story. When Kate Middleton’s Mother’s Day photo turned out to have been manipulated and edited, people were raging.

Not only did it appear that the royals, including Kate, wanted to fool the public into thinking everything was OK, but many also felt deceived and fooled.

Kate Middleton shares new picture of Prince Louis on 6th birthday – despite mishap

Kate Middleton issued a public apology after the photo mishap. The Princess of Wales is known to be a passionate photographer. She has even been on official photography duty for Queen Camilla, as she was featured on the front page of a magazine.

Moreover, Kate Middleton usually takes pictures every time her children celebrate their birthdays. Sadly, according to a royal expert, that time has passed.

On April 23, Prince Louis celebrates his sixth birthday. Usually, Prince William and Kate Middleton publish a new picture of the birthday child on their social media channels.

As reported by Hello! Magazine, fans have been looking forward to seeing a new picture of Prince Louis for his birthday. One enthusiastic fan wrote, “He’s super cute and definitely the cheeky one. I can’t wait to see the new photos of him. You never really know what Prince Louis is going to do when he’s on a walkabout with his mam and dad.”

However, royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams says fans will be “disappointed by the lack of a photograph” celebrating Prince Louis’s birthday.

“It is something of a royal tradition that royal birthdays are celebrated by the release of photographs, Catherine has taken a great many and they are always eagerly awaited,” royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams told Hello! Magazine

“This is a shame because of the vexed issue of her Mothering Day photograph. The revelation that it was edited led to a highly embarrassing contretemps and the subsequent revelation that she was not only recovering from abdominal surgery but bravely fighting cancer.

But Kate kept the tradition alive. On Instagram, the Prince and pRincess of Wales shared a new picture of Prince Louis – and it was taken by Kate.

“Happy 6th Birthday, Prince Louis! Thank you for all the kind wishes today,” the caption read.

Prince William steps out for first royal engagement after Kate’s cancer diagnosis

Kate Middleton and her royal family members have stayed very quiet since the princess announced her cancer diagnosis. Queen Camilla mentioned her some week ago while out on royal duty, but other than that, no other update has been given.

But as Prince William broke the silence on his wife, royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams speculated that the future king’s latest words about his wife were sending the public a secret message.

On April 18, Prince William made his first public engagement since his wife shared the news of her cancer. As he helped out at a food distribution charity called Surplus to Supper, volunteer Rachel Candappa handed the prince two get-well-soon cards addressed to both King Charles and Kate Middleton.

William was visibly moved, telling Rachel, “Thank you, you are very kind.

Rachel asked Kate to look after her, and the prince placed his hand on her shoulder and answered, “I will.”

The outing was Prince William’s first official royal engagement after his wife’s cancer diagnosis. According to royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams, the “well-timed” outing sends a hidden message: Things are on the way to normality again.

“Royals realise that every single thing they do sends a message in one way or another. It wasn’t just a question of appearing with George at an occasion that was enjoyable,” he told The Sun.

“It was a question of sending a signal that it was business as usual – as far as that was reasonable to be expected. If Catherine had been there, it would have been fantastic, but no one is expecting that. People wouldn’t expect that after her video message, which I think is the bravest ever on a health issue by a public figure in Britain.”

“Some things are going on, more or less as normal,”

Moreover, Richard Fitzwilliams said that William’s appearance at the food distribution charity also sends a message that not only him but also Kate are on their way to resuming royal duties.

“We know William is going back to royal duties shortly. The royal family obviously needs him. This was an important appearance, simply in the sense that it was what one would call normal. Obviously, with the royal family very little is actually normal at the moment. He is clearly looking after the children as far as feasible. I mean, it’s it’s a burden William has. It sent this message that things some things are going on, more or less as normal,” Fitzwilliams told The Sun.

“On the other hand, we know they’re not, and we know it’s a very difficult time,” he concluded.

“He and Catherine are attached to some 50 or so patronages – for example, mental health or homelessness, or the Earthshot prize. They know perfectly well there’s this tremendous cachet when either of them are attached to a particular institution or cause. Polls have made absolutely clear where the public support lies, and the fact that they are so highly regarded.”
