Kate Middleton’s Close Friends Stunned by Her Cancer Diagnosis, Reveals Pal

Kate Middleton had a private discussion with⁢ a small group of individuals before publicly announcing her cancer diagnosis last week. However, she chose not to disclose the information‌ to other⁣ close friends due to concerns about it being ⁢leaked to the media.

According⁤ to a friend of ⁣the Princess, as reported by⁤ PEOPLE‍ Magazine, the news⁤ of Kate’s cancer ⁣diagnosis ⁣came as a‌ shock ⁤to them. On⁤ March 22, ⁢Kate appeared in a video to confirm that her recent absence ⁤was ‌due to her battle with⁣ cancer. She‍ underwent⁢ abdominal surgery in January and tests revealed the presence of cancer.

The announcement was met with shock ‌and concern from people all over the world, especially since Prince Charles is also currently fighting the same disease. Prior ⁢to her ⁢video message, ⁣there had⁣ been intense speculation about Kate’s health and whereabouts.

“In January, I underwent major ⁢abdominal surgery in London and ​at the time, ⁢it was thought that my condition was⁤ non-cancerous,” Kate said in her video.

“The surgery⁢ was successful. 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.”

Despite having the ⁤support of her nation, family, ‌and ​friends, it has ‍been reported that ⁣Kate was unable to inform all of her close ⁣friends about her diagnosis out of fear⁤ that it would be leaked to the media.

As per PEOPLE​ Magazine,⁢ certain close friends and confidants were not informed about ⁣Kate’s cancer, with one friend⁢ describing it as a “shock”.

“It was a heck of a shock,” the friend said.

A former palace aide also added, “The circle of knowledge was very tight.”

Earlier this week, it was reported that even⁣ Prince Harry and Meghan⁣ Markle were not informed about Kate’s⁢ diagnosis before her public announcement. However, other sources ⁣claim‍ that⁤ they were entrusted⁢ with the⁢ information but given a “dire⁢ warning” not to break the trust.

One can only imagine the difficulty Kate faced in receiving her diagnosis and then having to navigate how to inform her family ⁤and friends. Not ​to mention the weight of having to eventually share the ⁢news with the public.

According to reports, Kate and her family​ will spend the ‌next few‍ weeks together while the children are on Easter break from​ school. While Prince William ‍will resume his royal duties as normal, it is expected that Kate’s return to royal​ engagements will be handled on⁢ a more flexible basis.

“The​ Princess will return to official duties when she is cleared to do so by ‌her medical team,” a palace spokesperson said ‍on Friday. “She is in good spirits and is focused on making a full recovery.”

Our thoughts and prayers are with Kate Middleton during this difficult time. Please leave a comment if you ‍would like to do⁤ the same.
