Many members of the royal family are publicly rallying around Princess Kate Middleton after she shared the news of her cancer diagnosis.

“In January, I underwent major abdominal surgery in London and at the time it was thought that my condition was non-cancerous,” the Princess of Wales said in a video shared via X on March 22. “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’m now in the early stages of that treatment.”

Kate went public with her condition after speculation sparked regarding her whereabouts during her lengthy recovery time. In the clip, the royal admitted that she waited to share the news with the public to give her and husband Prince William’s family time to sort out their feelings. (The pair share three children: Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.)

“William and I have been doing everything we can to process and manage this privately for the sake of our young family,” she continued. “As you can imagine, this has taken time. It has taken me time to recover from major surgery in order to start my treatment.”
