Prince William is feeling the love — and curiosity — from royal watchers as his wife, Princess Kate Middleton, continues her fight against cancer.

In the middle of his ongoing royal duties, William has been faced with questions and comments from fans, who are hoping to receive an update on his wife.

Kate first underwent an abdominal surgery in January 2024, during which doctors found cancerous tissue. The Princess of Wales — who shares Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis with her husband — later publicly confirmed her cancer diagnosis in March.

“My medical team therefore advised that I should undergo a course of preventative chemotherapy, and I’m now in the early stages of that treatment,” she said in a video released via Kensington Palace in March 2024. “I am well and getting stronger every day by focusing on the things that will help me heal in my mind, body and spirit. Having William by my side is a great source of comfort and reassurance too, as is the love, support and kindness that has been shown by so many of you.”
