‘Harry and Meghan found out about Kate Middleton’s cancer through TV broadcast’

Published:

NEW DELHI: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were reportedly made aware of Kate Middleton’s cancer diagnosis at the same time as the rest of the world, through a television broadcast. This revelation comes amid discussions on the family dynamics within the British royal family and how significant news is shared among its members.
The shocking revelation
Kate Middleton, the 42-year-old Princess of Wales, recently ended widespread speculation about her health by publicly disclosing her cancer diagnosis in a video message.She revealed that following a planned abdominal surgery, doctors discovered the presence of cancer. “My medical team therefore advised that I should undergo a course of preventive chemotherapy and I am now in the early stages of that treatment,” she explained, describing the diagnosis as a “huge shock.”
Kensington Palace has since expressed optimism about her recovery, yet the manner in which Prince Harry and Meghan Markle learned of the news underscores the current state of their relationship with the rest of the royal family.
A family apart
According to The Times of London, the Sussexes were not pre-informed of Kate’s health condition. A family source highlighted to PEOPLE the apparent lack of communication: “There is clearly no trust.” This sentiment was echoed by royal historian Richard Fitzwilliams, who told TIME, “It speaks volumes that Harry and Meghan learnt of the diagnosis from the news.”
The strained relations, further detailed in Harry’s memoir “Spare” and the Netflix docuseries “Harry & Meghan,” suggest deep-seated issues within the family, historically dubbed The Fantastic Four by the British media.
Potential for reconciliation?
As per a report in the Time magazine, despite the challenges, there is speculation that Kate’s diagnosis might offer a chance for the family to come closer during this difficult time. “A serious illness can change everything and bring families together. This may happen,” Fitzwilliams posited, suggesting that Harry’s recent visit to King Charles III, following his own cancer diagnosis, could mark the beginning of a reconciliation.
In response to Kate’s announcement, Harry and Meghan extended their wishes for her “health and healing” and expressed their hope for the family to manage this privately and peacefully. There have also been reports of direct communication between the Sussexes and the Cambridges, potentially signaling a thawing of relations.
