Kate Middleton added,

“It’s been an incredibly challenging few months for our family. However, I’ve been fortunate to have an exceptional medical team who have provided me with excellent care, for which I’m deeply thankful.”

“In January, I underwent significant abdominal surgery in London, initially believed to be non-cancerous. The surgery was successful, but post-operative tests revealed the presence of cancer. Consequently, my medical team recommended preventative chemotherapy treatment, which I’ve now begun.”

The Princess of Wales also praised William, her husband, as a “great source of comfort and reassurance during this time. This news was undoubtedly a shock, and William and I have prioritized processing and managing this privately for the well-being of our young family.”

Catherine shared that recovering from major surgery was challenging for her. Moreover, she took a lot of time to explain her health condition to her children.
