The Princess’s statement explains that when she had abdominal surgery in January, it was not known that there was any cancer.


“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,” said the princess.


The chemotherapy treatment began in late February. The Palace says it will not be sharing any further private medical information, including the type of cancer.


The princess, 42, said she was thinking of all those who have been affected by cancer, adding: “For everyone facing this disease, in whatever form, please do not lose faith or hope. You are not alone.”

Catherine said recovery from her surgery in January, for a condition which has not been revealed, had taken time and the priority was now reassuring her family.



“William and I have been doing everything we can to process and manage this privately for the sake of our young family.”


The Princess added: “It has taken us time to explain everything to George, Charlotte and Louis in a way that is appropriate for them, and to reassure them that I am going to be ok.”


She said the family now needs “some time, space and privacy”.

The King and Queen had been informed of the news about the Princess’s health prior to Friday’s announcement – and King Charles himself has also been undergoing treatment for cancer.

Catherine and Prince William are now not expected to appear with the Royal Family on Easter Sunday, and there won’t be any early return to official duties for the Princess.

The Palace also said Prince William’s sudden absence from a memorial service on 27 February was because of the discovery of Catherine’s cancer diagnosis.


The couple have faced intense public speculation and a social media frenzy about her health, since her operation in January. She has not attended any official events since Christmas.

In a statement, BBC News said: “Along with other media, BBC News was briefed by Kensington Palace on the announcement this afternoon.”

This had intensified after the withdrawal by photo agencies of a photograph of the Princess for Mother’s Day, on 10 March, because of concerns over digital alterations, for which the princess subsequently apologised.


There were also social media theories over video footage showing Prince William and Catherine shopping in Windsor earlier this week.

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak said on Friday Catherine had shown “tremendous bravery” with her statement, wishing her a “speedy recovery”.


He said: “In recent weeks she has been subjected to intense scrutiny and has been unfairly treated by certain sections of the media around the world and on social media.


“When it comes to matters of health, like everyone else, she must be afforded the privacy to focus on her treatment and be with her loving family.”

He said: “Any cancer diagnosis is shocking. But I can only imagine the added stress of receiving that news amid the lurid speculation we’ve seen in recent weeks.”


William and Catherine are “entitled to privacy and, like any parents, will have waited to choose the right moment to tell their children”.
