Kate Middleton cancer news: Prince Harry’s ‘true feelings’ over Princess’s diagnosis announcement revealed

Charles went on a surprise walkabout to greet members of the public after the Easter Sunday service

rince Harry likely ‘feels more spare than ever’ in the wake of Kate’s public cancer announcement, a royal author has said.

The Princess of Wales revealed her diagnosis to the world on 22 March, however it is understood neither Harry nor Meghan were told of the announcement ahead of time, laying bare the extent of the royal rift.

Shortly after Kate’s brave video message was broadcast, the Sussexes shared a message of support to their in-laws and reportedly reached out in private.

Royal author Dr Tessa Dunlop told the Mirror: “Harry is the self-identifying royal ‘Spare’. And in the wake of his sister-in-law’s health revelations, I expect he feels more spare than ever.”

Amid concerns of a growing rift, there is speculation Harry will visit his brother William when he returns to the UK this May to host an event for the Invictus games.

P

Dr Dunlop said she felt compassion for the couple, who left their royal duties in exchange for a life in California in 2020.

She added: “No, they don’t have cancer, and yes, they have been publicly critical of the British Royal Family. But in our own families, how many of us hold back our feelings on the off-chance a sibling or sister-in-law might get sick?”

The new note, placed on Getty’s version of the video in which Kate told the nation about her cancer diagnosis, read: “This handout clip was provided by a third-party organisation and may not adhere to Getty Images’ editorial policy.”Getty did not immediately provide any further details, but has now offered an explanation after some users leapt on the note as an opportunity to further outlandish conspiracy theories around the princess’s condition. “Of course the Kate Middleton video was fake: Getty adds addendum that suggests video was not legitimate… Kensington Palace stumbling around in the dark,” wrote one.

Prince Harry will ‘have some explaining to do’ if he doesn’t return to UK, expert says

Harry is scheduled to return to the UK next month but if plans fall through ‘he will have some explaining to do’, claims a royal expert.

The Duke of Sussex is set to arrive from California to speak at a special service for the 10th anniversary of the Invictus Games at St Paul’s Cathedral next month.

Royal expert, Tom Quinn, said it is likely Harry will stick to schedule and return to home soil to avoid speculation he is avoiding his brother out of awkwardness.

He told the Mirror: “Barring a major upset, Harry will certainly return to the UK for the Invictus games in May – it’s his baby.

“If he decides not to come, it will take some explaining, because everyone will assume it’s because he doesn’t want the awkwardness of having to meet his brother or having to choose not to meet him.”

A two-time cancer survivor who had preventative chemotherapy urges Kate Middleton to “stay positive” as she battles the disease.

Terri Grice, 50, felt a sharp pain under her armpit and a ‘tiny pea size lump’ under her right breast in 2011 but brushed off her symptoms.

Fortunately, her late husband Mark made her a GP appointment which led to a breast cancer diagnosis.

The mother-of-three from Chester started the long journey to recovery with an operation to remove the tumour, a lumpectomy, and then a course of “adjuvant chemotherapy” to ensure her body stayed cancer-free.
