Kate Middleton reveals cancer diagnosis and gives chemotherapy update in emotional video

March 23, 2024

Kate, 42, was admitted to hospital on January 16 for "major abdominal surgery", which has been confirmed as successful. At the time of her operation it was thought that her condition was non-cancerous, as no tests had confirmed the presence of cancer. The princess confirmed she is "now in the early stages of that treatment". Kate's cancer diagnosis was the reason William missed the memorial service for his late godfather, King Constantine of Greece, last month. Following the princess' cancer diagnosis and ongoing treatment, there is currently no time frame for her to return to royal duties.
