Kate Middleton and Prince William skip Easter service as she battles cancer


Royal family

Kate Middleton skipped the annual Easter church service on Sunday as she continues to battle cancer.

As expected, the Princess of Wales did not attend the event at St George’s Chapel in Windsor along with members of the royal family.

The Prince of Wales, as well as the couple’s three children, Prince George, 10, Princess Charlotte, 8, and Prince Louis, 5, were also absent as the family of five were expected to make a private Christmas celebration at his Anmer Hall residence. in norfolk.

It’s unclear when Middleton’s next outing will be amid her ongoing health issues. However, before announcing his diagnosis in a video message shared earlier this month, the palace said she was “unlikely to return to public duties” until after Easter.

His last public appearance was on Christmas 2023 when he attended morning service with his family.

Amid an avalanche of outrageous conspiracy theories about her absence from royal duties, Middleton revealed on March 22 that she is in the early stages of chemotherapy treatment after being diagnosed with cancer.

She did not reveal the severity of the cancer or what type of cancer she has at the time.

In a solemn video, the 42-year-old, who underwent abdominal surgery in January, said the news “came a huge shock” to her and her family.

“William and I have been doing our best to process and manage this privately for the sake of our young family,” she said, explaining that they wanted to tell their children the news before it became public.

“I’m doing well and getting stronger every day by focusing on the things that will help me heal, in my mind, body and spirit,” she continued, adding that William has been a “great source of comfort and peace of mind.”
