Prince William's Absence at Ex-King Constantine's Memorial Tied to Wife's Cancer Diagnosis

Prince Constantine Alexios of Greece and Denmark Prince William

The reason for Prince William's absence from the memorial service for his godfather, Ex-King Constantine of Greece, has been revealed. The prince of Wales missed the event at St George’s Chapel in Windsor on February 27 due to his wife Catherine's recent cancer diagnosis.

Initially, there was speculation about the absence being related to the death of Thomas Kingston, Lady Gabriella Windsor's husband. However, it has now come to light that the "personal reason" for Prince William's absence was his wife's health condition.

Following major abdominal surgery at the London Clinic in January, which was deemed successful, post-operative tests revealed the presence of cancer. This revelation contradicted earlier tests and statements from Kensington Palace suggesting that Catherine's condition was not cancerous.

In a video message updating the nation on her condition, Catherine described the cancer diagnosis as "a huge shock." She is currently undergoing the early stages of preventative chemotherapy treatment.

The news of Catherine's cancer diagnosis adds to the challenges faced by the Royal family, particularly following the King's own cancer diagnosis in January. It also sheds light on the recent speculation surrounding Catherine's health, including the circulation of a doctored Mothering Sunday picture.
