Kate Middleton's cancer announcement has shocked the UK

Kate Middleton, Princess of Wales, has been the center of attention in the United Kingdom since January, when she underwent stomach surgery and stayed out of the spotlight for several days. However, this Friday (22), he announced that he is undergoing cancer treatment, a video that moved the UK.

Catherine, 42, has revealed that she has started chemotherapy treatment, putting an end to the rumors and speculation that have been swirling since her surgery was announced two months ago.

“Catherine, you are not alone,” published The Sun, echoing the shock and affection for the Princess of Wales in the United Kingdom. Another newspaper, the Daily Mail, hit out at social media comments, saying “they have spread disgusting conspiracy theories to explain his absence from public life”.

The Times maintained the princess's positive speech at the news of her cancer announcement, saying with confidence, “I will beat this.”

Catherine is well-loved in the United Kingdom and is as popular as her husband's mother and heir to the crown, William, 41-year-old Princess Diana.

Today, in the streets, the public condemned press speculation about the princess's health. In front of Kensington Palace, Catherine and William's official London home, Nathaniel Taylor, a 24-year-old staffer, said: “What the media has done is really reprehensible. I think some speculation is inevitable, but what they've found is fantastic. I hope people look at themselves in the mirror.

At Tower Bridge, student Sophia, 19, said she had heard “strange allegations” about her absence and the real reason was “sad and serious”.

The princess is undergoing preventive chemotherapy, which began at the end of February, British agency PA reported.

“Preventive chemotherapy is given after surgery to reduce the risk of the cancer coming back in the future,” said lead clinical researcher and colon surgeon Andrew Becks of the University of Birmingham.

“It's like cleaning the floor with bleach when you spill something,” Becks said, explaining that chemotherapy “kills the spilled cells.”

Cancer attacks the monarchy

Within two months, the British Royal Family discovered that two of its most important members, Charles III and his niece Catherine, were suffering from cancer, the nature of which was not specified in either.

Like them, Sarah Ferguson, ex-wife of the king's brother Prince Andrew, announced in January that she was suffering from serious skin cancer.

Charles III, 75, whose cancer was announced after prostate surgery on February 5, said he was “proud of his niece's courage”.

William's younger brother Prince Harry and his wife Meghan, who are separated from the royal family and live in California, expressed their wishes for “health and recovery for Catherine and her family” in a statement.

Public absence

“It's terrible news. It's a shock,” royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams, who appears on several television channels as an analyst of the monarchy, told AFP.

“The way he announced his illness was very moving,” she said. “But there is no doubt that this is a very difficult time for the institution of the monarchy,” he added.

A Kensington Palace spokesman said yesterday that Catherine would return to public events “once her medical team has given her a positive signal”.

According to the PA agency, Catherine, William and their three children will not be at the traditional Easter Mass with the royal family.
