Why Prince William was missing from Kate Middleton’s cancer announcement video


NEW DELHI: A week back, 42-year-old Princess of Wales took the world by surprise when she addressed the public in a video message, revealing her ongoing cancer treatment after undergoing abdominal surgery in January. When Princess Kate appeared solo in a video message, it was widely wondered why Prince William didn’t join her.
Despite referencing Prince William and their children — Prince George (10), Princess Charlotte (8), and Prince Louis (5) — multiple times in the video, the royal felt it was crucial to deliver the message solo and at the right moment.

The children were already on Easter holiday from school when the palace released Kate’s pre-recorded video revealing her diagnosis. This decision was made to allow the family to have private time together in the upcoming weeks.

Explained why Prince William had not appeared in Kate’s emotional video, People quoted a palace source as saying, “It is a message from the princess about her health, and she wanted to personally deliver the message on her own.”
“William is extremely proud of his wife for the courage and strength she has shown not just this week but since her surgery in January, ” the source said. “Now more than ever, he’s focused on ensuring his wife has the privacy she needs to fully recover and that his children are shielded from the understandable interest in the news that has been shared.”

Kate had stated in her message that she was informed by her doctors that cancer had been detected in her body and that she is ‘now in the early stages of that treatment.’
According to Kensington Palace, the future queen is presently undergoing chemotherapy, which began in February. Kate underwent ‘major abdominal surgery’ on January 16 and the procedure was successful, according to the hospital record.
Since no testing had shown that cancer was present, it was believed at the time of her surgery that her condition was not malignant. Post-operative testing did, however, confirm the presence of malignancy.
