Royal Family Answers Kate Middleton Cancer Questions – Type, Diagnosis and Treatment Length - The Hook news

The Duchess of Cambridge is currently focusing on her recovery after medical tests revealed the presence of cancer.

In a televised statement on Friday, Kate, aged 42, disclosed that she has commenced the early stages of preventative chemotherapy following tests conducted after her abdominal surgery in January. Describing the news as a “huge shock,” the mother-of-three expressed her gratitude for the support received during this challenging time.

Kate shared, “It has been an incredibly tough couple of months for our entire family, but I’ve had a fantastic medical team who have taken great care of me, for which I am so grateful. 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. 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.”

As Kate prioritizes her health and family, Kensington Palace has addressed some inquiries regarding her well-being, diagnosis, and treatment plan.

The Palace clarified that the specific type and stage of cancer will remain private, stating, “We will not be sharing any further private medical information. The Princess has a right to medical privacy, as we all do.”

Initially, doctors believed Kate’s condition was non-cancerous, but subsequent tests following her surgery revealed otherwise. Kensington Palace explained, “The cancer was diagnosed once post-operative tests had been completed and results reviewed.”

Kate initiated preventative chemotherapy in late February and is now on a recovery pathway. The duration of her treatment will be determined by medical advice. Details of her treatment location will not be disclosed.

Regarding the timing of the announcement, it was noted that Kate and William chose to share the news after their children had finished school for Easter holidays, allowing them time to process and adjust as a family.

Kate expressed her hope to resume her royal duties once she has sufficiently recovered, stating, “My work has always brought me a deep sense of joy and I look forward to being back when I am able, but for now I must focus on making a full recovery.”

Kensington Palace assured that Kate will return to official duties upon clearance from her medical team. The Duchess remains in good spirits and is dedicated to her recovery.

Meanwhile, Prince William continues to support his wife and family while balancing his official duties. Buckingham Palace expressed pride in Kate’s courage and affirmed continued support for the entire family during this challenging time.
