Cancer, death and feuding

by cannaorganicgreenscam

The year has not yet reached April but already the royal family have had more than enough heartache. In the past three months three close members of the family have been diagnosed with cancer.

Kate, William and Charles have all faced their own challenges along with Sarah Ferguson, Prince Andrew’s former wife. In addition to health problems Thomas Kingston, son in law of Prince and Princess Michael of Kent, died suddenly.

And despite the health issues the long-running issues with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have continued with the two couples not seen in public together since the death of Queen Elizabeth in September 2022.

Kate’s announcement that she is being given preventative treatment after cancerous cells were found is the latest struggle to hit the family. On Friday the future queen released a video in which she explained she had bad news following successful abdominal surgery.

She told the world: “In January, I underwent major abdominal surgery in London and at the time, it was thought that my condition was non-cancerous. The surgery was successful. However, tests after the operation found cancer had been present.

“My medical team therefore advised that I should undergo a course of preventative chemotherapy and I am now in the early stages of that treatment. This of course came as a huge shock, and William and I have been doing everything we can to process and manage this privately for the sake of our young family.”

Kate’s health issues first became public earlier in the year. On January 16 she went into the London Clinic for “planned abdominal surgery”. It was said she would need time to recover and would not be returning to royal duties until after Easter.

At the time Kensington Palace said it would not be providing details on her health to keep things as normal as possible for her three children, Prince George, 10, Princess Charlotte, eight, and Prince Louis, five. It also said there would not be regular updates.

The announcement that she was in The London Clinic, a private hospital regularly used by the stars and royalty, was made on January 17, a day after her surgery. Just 90 minutes later it was announced that King Charles was postponing his royal duties as he was undergoing treatment at the same place for an enlarged prostate.

The King was said to be keen to share his health details to encourage other men who were experiencing the same issues to get checked out. A statement at the time said: “In common with thousands of men each year, The King has sought treatment for an enlarged prostate. His Majesty’s condition is benign and he will attend hospital next week for a corrective procedure.”

Then days later, on January 21, Sarah Ferguson, mother of Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, told how she had been diagnosed with skin cancer. This came just months after she had been treated for breast cancer. In one Instagram post she told of her “shock” at the diagnosis but said she was in “good spirits”.

The melanoma was found following the removal of a cancerous mole during her breast cancer treatment. She had undergone a mastectomy last summer and had moles removed and analysed during subsequent reconstructive surgery.

Days later, on January 26, King Charles Charles joined Kate at the London Clinic for his surgery. It was reported at the time he visited Kate while there.

Both royals were discharged on January 29. Kate left privately while Charles was joined by Queen Camilla as he left smiling and waving at well wishers.

However within days it was announced something more had been found following the King’s surgery and he had now been diagnosed with cancer. His treatment started immediately and it was said his public duties would be put on hold however he would continue to do state work.

Prince Harry headed to the UK from his USA home to see his father on February 7. However he travelled without his wife and children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, and only spent 25 hours in the UK with 30 minutes with his father before the King and his wife left for Sandringham.

It is not known

On February 27 Prince William pulled out of a memorial service for his godfather, King Constantine of Greece, where he had been due to give a bible reading. It was said at the time it was as a result of a “personal matter” however details have not been released.

The same day Buckingham Palace announced the death of Thomas Kingston, husband of Lady Gabriella Kinston. The 45-year-old was discovered dead at an address in Gloucestershire.

An inquest opening at Gloucestershire Coroners Courtwas told he died from traumatic head wound and a gun was found near to his body in an outbuilding at his parents home. However Kensington Palace said this was not the reason for Prince William’s absence at the service and speculation has since been that it was at that time that the Princess of Wales had been diagnosed with cancer.

It was not long after that much speculation began on social media about Kate’s whereabouts. Despite Kensington Palace initially saying she would not be back working until after Easter wild rumours began circulating as she had not been seen at all.

Then on March 4 she was seen in a car driven by her mother Carole Middleton, however it only served to bring more cruel rumours. On Mother’s Day, March 10, a photograph of Kate with her three children was published only to add fuel to the fire after it emerged it had been manipulated.

It was only after news agencies pulled the picture that a day later Kate admitted she was responsible for the altered photograph and apologised for any confusion it had caused. Later the same day Kate was seen with William in a car.

Then a week later, on March 16, the royal couple were seen in their local farm shop with a video of the pair published two days later by The Sun.

Finally on Friday Kate made her announcement to the world that she was in fact being treated for cancer. In an emotional statement she said her abdominal surgery had been successful but tests after the operation found cancer had been present. She said: “My medical team therefore advised that I should undergo a course of preventative chemotherapy and I am now in the early stages of that treatment.

“This of course came as a huge shock, and William and I have been doing everything we can to process and manage this privately for the sake of our young family.”

Throughout all this the relations between William and Harry appear to remain strained. Earlier this year a memorial event was held in memory of their mother, Princess Diana with both of her sons present.

But while the Prince of Wales attended the even at the Science Museum in London in person the Duke of Sussex appeared virtually via video link. The Mirror was told at the time the feud was “a headache” for the royal family.

Tom Quinn, royal expert and author told the paper: “William and Harry just cannot bear to be in the same room together because they have said unforgivable things to each other, but they are also conscious that if they did attend the Diana event together, the world would be watching for the inevitable awkwardness, the inevitable coldness and refusal to look into each other’s eyes.”
