BREAKING: Kate Middleton appears on video, announces she has cancer

Kate Middleton has received a diagnosis of cancer. The Princess of Wales conveyed this solemn news through a video message on Friday. Middleton explained that during her abdominal surgery, it was initially believed that her condition was non-cancerous. However, post-operative tests revealed the presence of cancer.

“This naturally came as a tremendous shock, and William and I have been doing everything we can to process and manage this privately for the sake of our young family,” said Kate, who is 42 years old, in the video. “As you can imagine, this has taken time. It has taken me time to recover from major surgery in order to start my treatment.”

Although Middleton did not specify the type of cancer, she did mention that she commenced “preventative chemotherapy” in February. This story is evolving, and further updates will be provided as more information becomes available. Our thoughts and prayers are with Kate and her family as they navigate through this challenging diagnosis.
