Prince William’s big decision gives positive hint about Kate Middleton’s cancer recovery

Prince William gave his first family update since his wife, Kate, the Princess of Wales, confirmed her cαncєr diagnosis earlier this year.

William startled admirers on Tuesday when he visited them outside James’ Place, a mental health nonprofit organization for men in Newcastle, England.

When a fan asked how he, Kate, and their three children were doing, William said, “We are all doing well, thank you.”

William and Kate have three children: Prince George, ten, Princess Charlotte, who turns nine on Thursday, and Prince Louis, six.

In March, Kate announced publicly in a video message that she had been diagnosed with cαncєr, just as the siblings were beginning their Easter break from school.

The type of cancer has not been disclosed. According to Kensington Palace, Kate started a course of preventative chemotherapy in late February.

“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,” Kate, 42, said in the video

In her message, Kate asked for privacy for her family and said she would be taking more time off from public royal duties.

The palace said at the time of her announcement that Kate would return to official duties when she is cleared by her medical team.

William also took time off from public duties after Kate shared her diagnosis publicly.

He returned to work on April 18 with a visit to the nonprofit organization Surplus to Supper, where he also received well-wishes for Kate and his father King Charles III, who was also diagnosed this year with cαncєr.

“Thank you very much. That’s very kind,” William told a volunteer who handed him cards of well-wishes for Kate and Charles, according to a video shared on X by Lizzie Robinson of ITV News.
