Harry and Meghan today said they are wishing the Princess of Wales ‘health and healing’ after she announced her shock cancer diagnosis. 

‘We wish health and healing for Kate and the family, and hope they are able to do so privately and in peace,’ the couple said in a brief statement to Harper’s Bazaar. 

It remains unclear if Harry will return to the UK, as he did after King Charles’ cancer diagnosis.

Kate announced her diagnosis in a video message today, explaining that the cancer was discovered after her abdominal surgery.

‘The surgery was successful, however, tests after the operation found that cancer had been present. 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 will be okay.’ 

She has since received a global outpouring of support. 

Among the first to praise her bravery was King Charles. 

‘His Majesty is so proud of Catherine for her courage in speaking as she did,’ a palace spokesman said today. 

‘Following their time in hospital together, HM has ”remained in the closest contact with his beloved daughter-in-law throughout the past weeks”.

‘Both Their Majesties ”will continue to offer their love and support to the whole family through this difficult time”.’
