Buckingham Palace expressed King Charles’ pride in Kate’s courage for publicly sharing her cancer diagnosis on 22nd March. The day before Kate’s announcement, they had a private lunch at Windsor Castle.

Beyond their royal titles, they are both patients undergoing a common health journey. A royal source notes that their shared experience is likely to deepen their connection, providing comfort and understanding to Kate in particular.

Kate’s cancer announcement followed weeks of social media speculation about her health and whereabouts after abdominal surgery in January. Amidst this frenzy, a manipulated photo released by the palace on 10th March fueled further speculation, ultimately leading to Kate’s admission of editing the image.

The uncertainty surrounding Kate’s health contrasted sharply with King Charles’ straightforward cancer announcement on 5th February. Royal historian Amanda Foreman remarks on the humanness of the royal family amidst this turmoil, highlighting the challenges they face as public figures.

While Prince William bears the weight of his wife and father’s illnesses, as well as ongoing tensions with his brother Prince Harry, he remains focused on his family and leadership role within the monarchy.
