King Charles and Camilla also added his well-wishes via a spokesperson for Buckingham Palace, who said the King was “so proud of Catherine for her courage in speaking as she did”.

After their time spent recovering in hospital together, the king had “remained in the closest contact with his beloved daughter-in-law”.

The statement concluded by stating the king and queen would “continue to offer their love and support to the whole family through this difficult time”.

In addition to the statements made by members of the Royal Family, scores of people from across the world have publicly wished Kate a fast recovery.

“My thoughts, and those of Australians, are with the Princess of Wales and her family following the news of her cancer diagnosis,” Australia’s PM Anthony Albanese began.

“The Princess of Wales has shown extraordinary courage with her public statement today, in which she expresses her concern for others.

“We are sending support and strength in this difficult time as she undergoes treatment, and we wish her well for a speedy recovery.”

UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak also added his thoughts in a statement sending Kate the love and support of the country, while also taking a moment to criticise the media

“In recent weeks she has been subjected to intense scrutiny and has been unfairly treated by certain sections of the media around the world and on social media,” Sunak wrote.

“When it comes to matters of health, like everyone else, she must be afforded the privacy to focus on her treatment and with her loving family.”

Overnight, Kate Middleton announced she is undergoing chemotherapy after being diagnosed with cancer. In an emotional two-minute video statement, Catherine, Princess of Wales admitted it had been an “incredibly tough couple of months for our entire family”.
