Queen Camilla breaks silence on Kate Middleton after cancer diagnosis

The cancer diagnosis of Catherine, Princess of Wales came as a huge shock for her and her family, as well as the people of Britain and everyone who adores the royal family.

During the hard times she has been going through and the diagnosis she needed to face, Kate and William tried to protect their three children as much as possible.

Experts believe that the timing Kate chose to post the video in which she opened up of her health state, Friday, 6 pm, wasn’t a coincidence. In fact, the reason was believed to be that their children’s school had closed by that time and they wouldn’t immediately face questions about it from their friends.

“George is ten now and can’t be shielded from any of this now,” a palace source told the Times. “Once it’s at the school gate and in the school playground, he won’t be able to avoid it.”

According to King Charles’ former butler Grant Harrold, Kate and William chose a different approach for each of the children when they shared the news of her cancer with them. He believes that the couple most likely “sugarcoated” her health issues when they broke the news to Prince Louis.

“I’m sure it was a very difficult and very different conversation between children,” Grant Harrold told the NY Post. “For instance, for Louis, I’m sure the conversation was more sugarcoated than it was with George and Charlotte.”

The former butler continued, “The older children can understand more, so I’d imagine it was a little more frank but undoubtedly staying positive, which is so important.

“That’s why when you now look at the picture of Kate with her three children, it brings a tear to your eye. For any mother to have that conversation is huge and you can imagine Charlotte and George are going to be good supports for her.”

He added that Louis is too young to understand her mom’s condition.

“It’s a tricky one. I’m sure the children will be handling it as any kids would be expected to handle it, but I think their parents are very good at being calm and collected, and I think that will rub off on the children,” he told the NY Post.

During Easter break, the children will spend their time at Anmer Hall at the Sandringham Estate with their parents where they would have fun egg hunting.

As Sandringham is also one of King Charles’ favorite places, it is certain that he and Camilla have spent some time with Kate and William there.

While Charles receives treatments for his cancer in London, it is his dear wife that fulfills most of the royal duties, and it is safe to say that she’s been greatly praised for that.

Speaking of the current role Queen Camilla has taken upon herself, royal expert Angela Levin said Camilla is “holding the royal family up.”

“I mean, to wait till you’re 73 is a long time before you can take the crown. I think obviously, at his age, it’s very difficult, but he’s very determined, and he’s only really just started to be king,” Levin said while appearing on GB News. “Supporting him very much, absolutely by his side, is Queen Camilla, who is going to all the engagements that they would have gone to together on her own.”

“And so that way he will feel it’s still moving, it’s still running, and they can discuss it and talk about it. And I think that’s marvelous. I mean, she is holding the Royal Family up and being strong. If you imagine 30 years ago, people were saying the whole Royal Family would absolutely disintegrate, and she would be of no use.”

Although it is known that Camilla doesn’t want to be under the spotlight, she’s doing an excellent job while meeting with the public.

“To support her husband. She understands him very well because they’ve been together for over 50 years, before they even got married. it’s a long time and they make each other laugh,” Levin added.

Not only Camilla steps in for her husband, but she’s also very supportive of Kate Middleton, especially during the time she was away from the public following her planned abdominal surgery.

The Telegraph’s associate editor, Camilla Tominey, claimed that the queen “has been trying to help [Catherine] through the media storm aspect in all of this.”

Tominey said, “I think before [Catherine] made the announcement because she was having to cope with the fallout of everything that was said about the Mother’s Day photo and everything else, I think Camilla lent some support.”

“Because let’s be honest, [Camilla] knows what it’s like to have a difficult press. She knows what it’s like to shepherd children through a media storm,” she added.

So far, no member of the Firm has spoken about Kate or her cancer, but a few days ago, Queen Camilla “broke” her silence while visiting Shrewsbury, where she met many royal fans at a farmer’s market. While there, two young girls handed Camilla a sign decorated a flower and a heart which read, “Send our love to Kate.”

Camilla posed with the sign, and allegedly told the girls, “I know that Catherine is thrilled by all the kind wishes and support,” as per royal expert Rebecca English.
