Prince George spotted for first time amid Kate Middleton’s cancer diagnosis – and everyone is saying the same thing

Kate Middleton’s cancer diagnosis came as a huge shock. In the video she released on March 22, she explained that doctors found the presence of cancer after running tests following her planned abdominal surgery.

“As you can imagine, this has taken time. It has taken me time to recover from major surgery in order to start my treatment. But, most importantly, it has taken us time to explain everything to George, Charlotte and Louis in a way that is appropriate for them and to reassure them that I am going to be okay,” Kate said in the video.

Allegedly, the children were told of their mom’s diagnosis in February, and the timing of Kate’s video was not coincidental. Experts believe that the family chose Friday, 6 p.m. because their children’s school had closed by that time and they wouldn’t immediately face questions about it from their friends.

“George is ten now and can’t be shielded from any of this now,” a palace source told the Times. “Once it’s at the school gate and in the school playground, he won’t be able to avoid it.”

According to King Charles’ former butler Grant Harrold, Kate and William chose a different approach for each of the children when they shared the news of her cancer with them. He believes that the couple most likely “sugarcoated” her health issues when they broke the news to Prince Louis.

“I’m sure it was a very difficult and very different conversation between children,” Grant Harrold told the NY Post. “For instance, for Louis, I’m sure the conversation was more sugarcoated than it was with George and Charlotte.”

The former butler continued, “The older children can understand more, so I’d imagine it was a little more frank but undoubtedly staying positive, which is so important.

“That’s why when you now look at the picture of Kate with her three children, it brings a tear to your eye. For any mother to have that conversation is huge and you can imagine Charlotte and George are going to be good supports for her.”

He added that Louis is too young to understand her mom’s condition.

“It’s a tricky one. I’m sure the children will be handling it as any kids would be expected to handle it, but I think their parents are very good at being calm and collected, and I think that will rub off on the children,” he told the NY Post.

During Easter break, the children spent their time at Anmer Hall at the Sandringham Estate with their parents where they had fun and went egg hunting.

As per GB News host Bev Turned, Easter was a perfect time to discuss what was happening. She noted that Kate “wanted to tell her children in her own time,” adding that the princess “didn’t want to be pushed into it” even though the speculations grew.

“She’s got them off for Easter for 2 or 3 weeks now, and she can talk to them and keep them close,” Turned said.

Now that the holiday is over, the family is likely stressed over the fact that the children are getting back to school where they could be questioned of their mom’s cancer by the schoolmates.

Royal experts believe that Prince George may feel the most pressure.

“George might have a retinue of bodyguards who probably know 17 ways to kill someone using only their bare hands, but even they can’t protect the boy from schoolyard tattle and kids talking,” Daniela Elser wrote in a column for

“It would seem that by and large the Lambrook community has, and will continue to, rally around the family, however there are limits and kids, even ones who start their day with boiled quails eggs and celery salt, are only kids. How will George, Charlotte and Louis cope having to be back at school where all of their classmates and the entire world knows their mum is unwell?”

Elser continued, “The good news is that William, Kate, and their three have another blessed week of peace and quiet and more nature than you could shake an antique mahogany stick at before this all descends on them, and George realizes he’s lost his Latin primer.”

After quite some time, the young prince was spotted in public with his father during a football match. Aston Villa played French side Lille in the Europa Conference League and the father and son cheered their favorite club on.

It was obvious that the father-son duo had plenty of fun, especially because Aston Villa won 2-1.

“Just wow. Two future kings just enjoying a fabulous night without security to the Tee or some type of stupid drama. Prince William and Prince George are the finest father and son duo,” one person wrote on X, as per Express.

Another added, “Just normal dad & son stuff of two unassuming future Kings.”

A third wrote, “Love this. William is such a good dad.” One royal fan pointed out how mature George looked, “Love this family! Prince George is growing up so fast!”

“I love that Prince William is still trying to do all the things he usually does with his family to keep things as normal as possible. Father goal,” and “Prince William and Prince George making memories at Villa Park, bonding over their love for football. A true testament to Prince William’s commitment to being a hands-on dad,” were the rest of the comments.

We can all agree that William is an incredible father.
