In a heartfelt statement and accompanying video, the Duchess revealed that tests conducted after her surgery in January detected the presence of cancer. She shared the news to keep the public informed and to prevent any speculation.

She said, “Following the advice of my medical team, I am now in the initial stages of a preventive chemotherapy course. William and I were deeply shocked by this diagnosis. We are focusing on managing this situation privately for the well-being of our young family.”

Sitting on a garden bench dressed in a blue and white striped jumper paired with blue trousers, Kate Middleton shared that she took time to process the news and inform her children, Prince George, 10, Princess Charlotte, 8, and Prince Louis, 5, before making a public announcement.

"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," she said.

"In January, I had a 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 a preventive chemotherapy treatment, which I've now begun."

Kate praised her husband, William, as "a great source of comfort and reassurance" during this time. She continued, "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."

She added, "Recovery from major surgery and preparing for treatment has taken time. But, most importantly, we've taken the time to explain everything to George, Charlotte, and Louis in an age-appropriate manner and reassure them that I will be okay."
