Royal news: Well wishes flood in for Kate Middleton amid cancer battle

The Princess of Wales revealed in a touching video that she has been diagnosed with cancer.

Fans worldwide are rallying behind the Princess of Wales, Kate Middleton, following her courageous revelation of cancer diagnosis.

In a touching video, Kate opened up about her battle with cancer and ongoing chemotherapy treatment.

She revealed that she underwent major abdominal surgery in London in January, initially believing her condition was non-cancerous.

However, post-surgery tests indicated that she had cancer, prompting her medical team to recommend chemotherapy.

“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,” she added.

Wrapping up her statement, Kate said she will be taking some time off from her royal duties until she is able to return.
