The world celebrates her courage to tell everyone that histology diagnosed cancer cells after her abdominal surgery in January. As a preventive measure, she says she is undergoing chemotherapy. She looks stricken as she appears in public for the first time in weeks.

The seat next to Princess Kate is empty. One might think that her husband, Prince William, would be there to support her in these difficult sentences to the camera, but she appears alone, but says: “Having William by my side is a great source of comfort and reassurance.” The Sunday Times reported that Prince William was unconvinced of her plan to address the bubbling social media rumors about her disappearance from the spotlight and her illness. It is said that a written statement might have been too shocking. The princess also wanted to show people via video that she was positive and confident about what would happen next.

A close confidant of the couple told the newspaper: “She wrote every word herself and it happened very quickly.” Maybe a little too quickly, because William was said to not have been at home at Windsor Castle, where the video was shot, at the time of filming, according to Town and Country Magazine.

A friend of the couple explained to the Sunday Times why she appeared alone in front of the camera: “She is a strong woman who is sending a strong message to the nation. She doesn’t need anyone to sit next to her.”

According to reports, the heir to the throne was still very proud of his wife. According to the Sunday Times, Kate decided to take this step not only because of public pressure, but also to give other people with cancer hope and to be able to be a leader in difficult times.
