Kate Middleton “extremely moved” by this outpouring of love and support


Kate Middleton has been flooded with messages of support after announcing the sad news of her cancer diagnosis, Kensington Palace said in a new statement this morning.

In the message, posted a day after Kate revealed she was undergoing treatment for her illness, the Princess of Wales says she is grateful for all the love she and her husband Prince William have received from all four corners of the world.

“The Prince and Princess are both extremely touched by the kind messages from people here in the UK, across the Commonwealth and around the world in response to Her Royal Highness,” read a statement from the palace on Sunday Morning.

“They are extremely moved by the warmth and support from the public and are grateful for the understanding of their request for privacy at this time.”

Kate revealed the news of her cancer in an emotional video message shared on Saturday morning.

“It’s been an incredibly difficult few months for our whole family, but I’ve had a fantastic medical team who took great care of me, which I’m very grateful for,” she said in the clip.

“In January I had a major abdominal operation in London and at the time it was thought my condition was not cancerous. The operation is a success. However, tests after the operation revealed the presence of cancer. My medical team therefore advised me to undergo preventative chemotherapy and I am now in the early stages of this treatment.

After the initial “shock”, she said she and William were now focusing on his health issues “privately for the sake of our young family”.

“As you can imagine, this took a while. It took me a while to recover from major surgery to begin my treatment. But, more importantly, it took us time to explain everything to George, Charlotte and Louis in a way that worked for them, and to reassure them that everything will be okay.

But Kate assured the world she was “doing well and getting stronger every day.”

“Having William by my side is also a great source of comfort and reassurance,” she added. “Just like the love, support and kindness so many of you have shown. It means so much to both of us.
