Princess of Wales Reveals Cancer Diagnosis; Catholic Cardinal Praises Her Courage, Encourages Prayers

Catherine, the Princess of Wales, surprised the world on Friday by publicly announcing that she is fighting cancer and is in the early stages of treatment.

Upon making the announcement, the princess also addressed others who suffer from the disease and asked them not to lose hope.

“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,” said the princess, 42, in a March 22 video message.

In early February, the World Health Organization (WHO) estimated that in 2022 there were 20 million new cases of cancer, resulting in 9.7 million deaths. It is projected that by 2050 the number of new cancer diagnoses will reach approximately 35 million, representing a 77% increase compared with 2022.

The news, which has generated a wave of global concern and support, was announced on the official X account of the prince and princess of Wales. This comes just a month after it was confirmed that King Charles III of England is also battling cancer.
