King Charles III and Kate, Princess of Wales both are battling cancer.

King Charles III, who is also receiving treatment for an unknown cancer, shared that he is "so proud of Catherine for her courage in speaking as she did."

Another family source also revealed: "The day the family found out was the day William canceled going to the memorial of his godfather, King Constantine of Greece," they added. "They have been processing the information and Kate has already started chemotherapy."

The disease is said to be "in its earliest stages," which is also where Kate's treatment currently is. "My medical team therefore advised that I should undergo a course of preventative chemotherapy, and I’m now in the early stages of that treatment," HRH explained. "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," the queen-in-waiting continued. "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," the senior royal added. "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."
