Royal expert shares details about Prince William and Kate Middleton’s marriage amid Kate’s treatment


Having been married for more than 13 years, Prince William and Kate Middleton have been through a lot together. And today, after a very tough year, Kate appears to be on her way to fully recovering from her cancer.

Kate’s many months of recovery have been difficullt for the entire family. William has had to take on much more responsibility than usual, and though they have supported each other through thick and thin, what has happened could have taken its toll on their marriage.

As the Princess of Wales made her royal comeback at Trooping the Colour, royal fans worldwide finally got to see the future queen in public again. It might be a while until she fully recovers, but her marriage with Prince William has stood strong. In fact, according to a royal expert, the fact that Kate has been sick could have made it even stronger.

Kate Middleton’s royal comeback amid cancer diagnosis

When Queen Elizabeth II passed away in 2022, The Prince and Princess of Wales had to step up and become even more vital for the royal family, not least because Prince William is now the next person in line to the throne — and Kate will then become queen.

This year was supposed to be the first full year for King Charles as the official monarch, meaning a new era for the royals. However, it only took days before things took a very sad turn as Kate Middleton went through abdominal surgery, with the King receiving a sudden cancer diagnosis not long after. Then, in March, Kate announced that she had been diagnosed with cancer.

In the months since then, Prince William has been juggling his responsibilities to the Crown with being a father and husband. He’s been praised for handling the situation, but experts have argued that he’s also been through a tough time.

Finally, two weeks ago, Kate Middleton shared the fantastic news that she would attend Trooping the Colour.

After riding in the carriage, waving and smiling to her fans, Kate walked out on the balcony with William and her three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.

It has been tough, but Kate has not been alone in this challenging time. Prince William has taken on the massive responsibility of George, Charlotte, and Louis while simultaneously performing his royal duties.

The pictures on the balcony spoke for themselves as William and Kate smiled at each other. As per former BBC royal correspondent Jennie Bond, it painted an obvious picture. They have not only made it through a very challenging period but also have hopes for a bright future.

“The last few months have been a test of their strong partnership,” Bond told OK! Magazine. “I think this photograph tells us that they are still able to jump for joy, even in the toughest of times, and that Kate has deliberately chosen a picture that speaks of their optimism for the future.”

“She adores William – he is her rock and has supported her so selflessly through all of this and has taken flak from members of the public for not doing more and for devoting himself to her. So she adores her man. I think their marriage is stronger than ever.”

Jennie Bond continued, describing William’s commitment to Kate as a “great accolade.”

While the future king has received some criticism over how he behaved following his wife’s cancer diagnosis, Bond says it all comes down to the fact that he is one hundred percent dedicated to his wife.

“It’s a great accolade to a person to have your partner who has such a public role but any partner just say ‘OK, I don’t care what people say, you are my priority,” she concluded. “William has made it absolutely clear that Kate and the children are his number one priority and nothing is going to move him away from that path.”

“All he wants to do is protect his wife and children”

This is the first time Prince William and Kate Middleton have experienced a challenging situation like this for their tight-knit family. While it has been a very emotional rollercoaster, the tragic passing of his mother, Princess Diana, has somewhat helped him and his family in recent months.

A source close to Prince William told the Sunday Times in mid-March that the future king had gone into “protection mode,” trying to protect his children as their mother’s health is discussed in the media and among the public. William knows all about it as he lost his mother when he was only a teenager.

“All he wants to do is protect his wife and children. The family just want to go away for Easter, spend time together, the five of them, close off from the world and move on.”

Princess Diana never got to see her children marry or have children. But according to royal commentator Ingrid Seward, Diana would have been very proud of William’s handling everything in the past year.

“It has been one of the most difficult couple of years of Prince William’s life,” she told the Mirror.

“William is sensitive, he likes structure and has perseverance. He does not give up easily. His relationship with brother Harry upset him more than he would care to admit. But he found it easier to cut ties rather than allow himself to be continually annoyed.”

Seward added, “His life with Kate gives him the security, love and friendship he needs. He doesn’t dwell upon the loss of his mother but knows the feeling of hurt will never go away completely.”
