Shock and Concern in the United Kingdom. Princess Kate, wife of William, the heir to the British throne, announced in a video on Friday March 22 that she has cancer and has begun chemotherapy, without specifying its nature.

The announcement is a new blow to the British royal family. A month and a half ago, on February 6, Buckingham Palace announced that 75-year-old King Charles III, who will ascend the throne in September 2022, has been diagnosed with cancer.

“In January, I underwent major abdominal surgery in London. At the time, I thought my condition was cancer-free,” the 42-year-old princess explained in a video where she appeared to be vindicated.

“However, tests carried out after the operation revealed the presence of cancer,” he continued, speaking of a “huge shock”.

“My medical team advised me to undergo preventive chemotherapy and I am now in the early stages of this treatment,” added the Princess of Wales. However, she assured that she was “fine”.

“It took us a while to explain everything to George, Charlotte and Louis,” her three children with Prince William, she said. “As I told them, I'm doing well and getting stronger every day by focusing on the things that will help me heal,” she said, adding, “I hope the public will understand that we need time, space and privacy as I continue my treatment.”

End of speculation after “Photogate”.

For more than two months, the princess's health was critical.

On January 17, Kensington Palace announced that Kate had undergone major abdominal surgery at a London clinic. The palace warned she would not return to public appearances before Easter.

He gave no other details, but told British state reporters it was not cancer.

The palace could not stop the long recovery and lack of information for the princess, one of the most photographed women on the planet in general.

On March 10, for British Mother's Day, Kensington released an official photo of a smiling Kate surrounded by her three children, the first since Christmas. But after the photo was taken down by major international agencies including AFP, Kate admitted it had been photoshopped, sparking further speculation.

British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak on Friday wished the princess a “full and speedy” recovery, while the White House said it was “deeply saddened” by the news of her illness. For his part, French President Emmanuel Macron praised Princess Kate's “strength” and “resistance”.
