After months of silence on her health, Kate Middleton has finally revealed she has cancer. It sounds bad.

In a video posted by Kensington Palace on Friday, the Princess of Wales made her public appearance and disclosed that she had been given a cancer diagnosis, which had been discovered during her January abdominal surgery.

The Princess of Wales says, “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 that I should undergo a course of preventative chemotherapy and I am now in the early stages of that treatment.” She made no mention of the particular kind of cancer she’s battling.

In addition, Kate seems to hint to her extended absence when she states that she and Will needed time to discuss this health concern with their three young children and that she wanted to reassure them that she’s going to be okay.

Kensington Palace has prepared to give an important update on Kate’s condition. They’ve already done that, and as Kate fights it, she’s broken a lot of people’s hearts.

Kate requests privacy in her video during this trying period while undergoing chemotherapy.

The news puts a stop to months of speculation regarding Kate’s place and health. It all began in mid-January when the Princess of Wales unexpectedly needed abdominal surgery and was admitted to the hospital for two weeks.

Kate was obviously out of the spotlight for far longer than that, and the longer it lasted, the more they continued to spread rumors and promote conspiracy theories.

When the Palace tried to handle all of the speculation, the debate and gossip surrounding Kate only became more serious. At first, it was mostly lighthearted, mostly through a number of internet jokes and memes that made fun of the situation.

Shortly after, Kate made her public appearance by pulling up in her mother’s car. She was hiding her identity and sporting shades. Initially, the Palace had only released a statement stating that Kate was still healing and doing well.

People didn’t believe that Kate was who she claimed to be, so the jokes and memes kept coming, and conspiracy theories started to pick up steam. And then there was the whole Mother’s Day photo scandal.

Remember that Kensington Palace shared a photo of Kate with her children that they said was taken by Prince William. But it didn’t take long to see that the photo had been altered in Photoshop, as there were very noticeable editing changes.

Following that, Kate released a statement in which she admitted to editing it.

The first time Kate was truly spotted out and about on her own two feet was last Saturday, when she and William appeared at a farm shop roughly a mile from their house. Many people noted her weight decrease even though she appeared happy and healthy.

Kate’s seeming thin appearance on the video can now be explained by the cancer news. She is undergoing treatment for the disease, and this is one of the known side effects, which can have a severe impact on the body.

This news is obviously heartbreaking for her loved ones and family, but it’s also devastating for the entire UK, where she plays a significant role as a Royal and has faithfully served.

Needless to say, Kate is currently the second senior Royal to be battling the disease. King Charles, her father-in-law, was also recently diagnosed with cancer, however it’s unclear what kind of cancer he has or how advanced it is. Having said that, Charles has been working on his responsibilities lately.

I wish Kate and the entire Royal Family the best of luck during these trying times.
