Buckingham Palace flooded with ‘tens of thousands’ of messages following Kate Middleton’s cancer diagnosis

Buckingham Palace has been flooded with “tens of thousands” of messages in the months following Kate Middleton’s cancer diagnosis.

In March, the Princess of Wales announced that she is undergoing treatment for cancer, which was discovered after she underwent abdominal surgery in January.

It is understood by the Daily Mail that the correspondence team at the palace have been “so touched” by the support shown during the Princess’s ongoing treatment.

Following her diagnosis, Kate took a step back from her public duties with not date given on her return.

The support has continued since the heartbreaking announcement with the Palace having received thousands of cards, letters and gifts from the public giving their best wishes for the Princess’s recovery.

While the volume of messages has been difficult for the team to cope but they still plan to respond to each message.

In a normal week, the Palace expects to receive a thousand messages but in recent months this has significantly increased.

On March 22, the mother-of-three released an emotional video revealing her cancer diagnosis.

The 42-year-old said: “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 preventive 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. As you can imagine, this has taken time.”

“It has taken me time to recover from major surgery in order to start my treatment. But, most importantly, it has taken us time to explain everything to George, Charlotte and Louis in a way that is appropriate for them, and to reassure them that I am going to be ok.”

“As I have said to them; I am well and getting stronger every day by focusing on the things that will help me heal; in my mind, body and spirits. Having William by my side is a great source of comfort and reassurance too.”

“As is the love, support and kindness that has been shown by so many of you. It means so much to us both.”

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

“My work has always brought me a deep sense of joy and I look forward to being back when I am able, but for now I must focus on making a full recovery.”

There is no official date as to when the Princess will return to public engagements.
