Prince William and Kate Middleton ‘very anxious’ about taking the throne amid King Charles’ cancer battle

Prince William and Kate Middleton are said to be “very anxious” about possibly taking the throne, amid King Charles’ battle with cancer.

The British monarch shared his diagnosis in February, just weeks before the Princess of Wales announced she was also receiving treatment for cancer.

As the next in line to the throne, the Prince of Wales and his wife are reportedly feeling the pressure – especially given her current condition.

Tina Brown, Princess Diana’s biographer, revealed to The Independent: “News of Charles’s cancer has put William and Catherine in frightening proximity to ascending the throne… the prospect of it, I am told, is causing them intense anxiety.”

In early February, Buckingham Palace announced that the British monarch had been diagnosed with “a form of cancer” after undergoing a procedure for an enlarged prostate.

In a statement, the Palace said: “During The King’s recent hospital procedure for benign prostate enlargement, a separate issue of concern was noted. Subsequent diagnostic tests have identified a form of cancer.”

“His Majesty has today commenced a schedule of regular treatments, during which time he has been advised by doctors to postpone public-facing duties.”

“Throughout this period, His Majesty will continue to undertake State business and official paperwork as usual.”

“The King is grateful to his medical team for their swift intervention, which was made possible thanks to his recent hospital procedure.”

“He remains wholly positive about his treatment and looks forward to returning to full public duty as soon as possible.”

The statement concluded: “His Majesty has chosen to share his diagnosis to prevent speculation and in the hope it may assist public understanding for all those around the world who are affected by cancer.”

Just weeks after the shock news, the King’s daughter-in-law shared her own cancer diagnosis, which was discovered after she underwent abdominal surgery in January.

The Princess of Wales bravely announced she was receiving treatment for cancer in a video posted on social media on March 22nd.

The announcement finally put to bed cruel rumours that had been circulating online about her in recent weeks.

In her public address, the 42-year-old revealed: “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.”

The mother-of-three continued: “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,” she revealed.

“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.”

Kate also delivered a message of support to fellow cancer sufferers, and said: “At this time, I am also thinking of all those whose lives have been affected by cancer.”

“For everyone facing this disease, in whatever form, please do not lose faith or hope. You are not alone.”
