The Prince has not been seen at any public engagements since March 19, just days before Kate announced she had been diagnosed with cancer.

The Princess of Wales revealed her diagnosis in a video on March 22, saying it came as a shock.

“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,” she said in the video.

“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 Princess said she and William would be spending some time to process it privately for the sake of their young family.
