London, United Kingdom: The Princess of Wales, Kate, 42, has been diagnosed with cancer. The announcement was made by the Kensington Palace on Friday amid rumours and conspiracy theories about her health.

The palace has informed general public that Princess Kate had been admitted to the hospital for abdominal surgery in January. If sources are to be believed, it has been said that she stepped back from her public duties in the same month (January 2024).

When the Princess of Wales returned from her successful surgery, the palace announced that she was currently recovering and, based on the current medical advice, that she was likely to return to her public duties after Easter.
