Albanese tells cancer-stricken Princess Cate that Australians’ thoughts are with her


Prime Minister Anthony Albanese says Australians are “sending support and strength” to Princess Catherine after her announcement she is receiving chemotherapy to treat cancer.

“My thoughts, and those of Australians, are with the Princess of Wales and her family following the news of her cancer diagnosis,” he posted on X, formerly known as Twitter, on Saturday.

Mr Albanese said the Princess showed “extraordinary courage” with her public statement.

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

Former prime minister Scott Morrison also wished the royal family well.

“Sending love and praying for a full recovery of Princess Catherine as well as comfort and support for Prince William, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis,” he posted on X.

The Australian Monarchist League invited its members and supporters to sign a card for the Princess of Wales sending wishes “for a speedy recovery and for strength and perseverance”.

“Our hearts go out to The Princess of Wales on hearing the news that she is undergoing chemotherapy treatment for cancer,” the league said.

“Our thoughts and prayers are also with the Prince of Wales and the children at this time.”

Clip ends speculation

In a video message the Princess of Wales has ended speculation about her by healthby revealing she has cancer and is undergoing chemotherapy.

Kate, 42, spent two weeks in hospital in January after having what her office said at the time was successful, planned surgery for an unspecified but non-cancerous condition.

However, in a video message, Kate said subsequent tests had revealed cancer had been found.

She said she was well and getting stronger.

“My medical team therefore advised that I should undergo a course of preventative chemotherapy and I am now in the early stages of that treatment,” Kate said in the video which was filmed on Wednesday.

“This of course came as a huge shock, and William and I have been doing everything we can to process and manage this privately for the sake of our young family.”
