Princess Kate announced on Friday she is undergoing chemotherapy for cancer.

In a video released by Kensington Palace, the Princess of Wales said her cancer was discovered after undergoing abdominal surgery back in January.

“I wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you personally for all the wonderful messages of support and for your understanding whilst I’ve been recovering from surgery,” Kate said.

“It has been an incredibly tough couple of months for our entire family, but I’ve had a fantastic medical team who have taken great care of me for which I am so grateful.”

The princess said it was believed at the time that her condition was non-cancerous. Yet, following her surgery the test results showed up as positive for cancer. Kate’s medical team advised her to go through preventative chemotherapy.

“The surgery was successful, however, tests after the operation found cancer had been present,” Kate said.

The princess said she is growing stronger each day, and praised William for sticking by her side throughout the process as they try to explain in an age-appropriate manner to their children what has been happening.

“We hope that you’ll understand that as a family we now need some time, space and privacy while I complete my treatment,” Kate said.
