‘Unforgettable’: Prince William breaks silence for first time since Kate Middleton’s cancer diagnosis announcement

The life of the royals has always been and intriguing one. Most recently, it has been the cancer diagnosis of two major royal figures that is attracting the attention of the public.

At the time the Palace announced that Catherine, the Princess of Wales would be undergoing a planned abdominal surgery in mid-January, the news of King Charles’ cancer has also found its way in the media. In fact, it was the Palace that shared the King’s diagnosis, for which the monarch was praised by royal experts.

Following Kate’s surgery, people started speculating about her well-being and her whereabouts because she was nowhere to be seen.

It has been reported that following her cancer diagnosis, which she disclosed with the public in March, Harry and Meghan reached out to both Charles and Kate.

What’s most, royal experts claimed that Harry regretted writing about Kate in his book Spare.

When it comes to Harry, it’s safe to say that he burned bridges with the members of the Firm when he and his wife gave Oprah the infamous interview and then moved on to film a documentary in which they revealed details about the royal life and the royals, and Harry published his book.

Prince William was among those who received his fair share of criticism from his brother, and today, the two don’t speak at all. In fact, it is said that William doesn’t even want to be in the same room as his brother.

Shortly after Spare was released, a source told the Daily Mail that the situation had become a “toxic stalemate.”

“William has no intention whatsoever of apologizing and remains incandescent, especially around the way his wife, the Princess of Wales, has been treated. The relationship isn’t even rock bottom now — it’s nonexistent. And I just don’t see if Harry were to come to the coronation how William could even bring himself to look his brother in the face,” the source said.

Since then, the brothers’ bond has hit its lowest point. Their encounters have been sparse, and at the moment, Prince William and Prince Harry hardly communicate. Surprisingly, recent tumultuous events within the royal family could potentially mark a pivotal moment, according to Harry.

Harry returned to Britain shortly after he learned of his father’s diagnosis.

The father and son had several “warm exchanges” during the visit, and their meeting lasted about 30 minutes. However, that Harry could possibly return to royal life was not something William was having a bar of.

“Whatever has been discussed between William and the King is private, but it is absolutely and categorically clear that he [William] would not allow Harry to return. He thought it was a bad idea at the time and he’s even more clear now,” the source said.

Camilla wasn’t happy with Harry’s visit either. She referred to it as to a “PR stunt.” William shared her thoughts.

“William would be upset that Harry yet again has chosen to make this visit to see his father a PR opportunity,”  Ingrid Seward, editor-in-chief of Majesty Magazine, told The Sun. “As far as William is concerned, he has absolutely no interest in speaking to Harry until Harry behaves like a gentleman and apologizes for the years of rudeness and slurs he has aimed at William and the Princess of Wales.”

“William must be privately furious thinking over all the years how he supported Harry, and at this one moment in his life when his 75-year-old father and wife of 13 years are both potentially seriously unwell, all Harry can think about is Harry and using it as an opportunity to announce his arrival and expect to see William.”

The royal author added that Harry “can’t resist” an opportunity to think about Harry and not the bigger picture.”

“It really stirs things up, him rushing over to see his father, and maybe he should have waited for a week or two,” the editor-in-chief of Majesty Magazine continued.

“William was an excellent big brother. They always fought. But he was a good big brother. William always thought about things long and hard before he acted and usually kept schtum, while Harry was always impulsive. And it still appears to be that way.”

Many claimed that Harry and Meghan revealing plenty about their personal lives and the lives of the rest of the royals imposed the “new normal” and that’s the reason why the public and the media now expects from Kate and the rest of the royals to reveal private things about their lives, including their medical records.

One of the reasons Kate stayed quiet about her diagnosis was her husband, Prince William.

“The trolls have carried on to this day. But one thing that’s very interesting is if you look at the difference between the responses,” author Alexander Larman told GB News. “Buckingham Palace came forward very quickly and gave a fairly candid idea of what’s happening with Charles with his illness, and Kensington Palace didn’t.”

“I think that’s because Prince William is much more into the vein of never complain, never explain, which was his great grandfather’s motto, and has always served the Royal Family well,” Alexander Larman continued.

“But it doesn’t hold up in 2024 because you’ve got to allow the idea the information is going to get out into the public, whether you like it or not.”

Until now, William stayed quiet and wasn’t active on the social media, until April 10 when he broke silence.

He took to his and Kate’s official Prince and Princess of Wales Twitter account to recognize English soccer player Rachel Daly for her “unforgettable” career as she retired from international duty with the England national team. He then joked that she would now have the time to focus on her career in Aston Villa, a team the Prince is know to have supported over the years.

“Thank you for so many unforgettable performances with Lionesses, Rachel Daly. Plenty more goals for Villa now!” the post read, signed with “W” for William.

William once spoke of his love for the club and said, “A long time ago at school, I got into football big time. All my friends were Chelsea or Manchester United fans, and I didn’t really want to follow the run-of-the-mill team.” He added: “I wanted to have a team that was more mid-table that could give me more emotional rollercoaster moments. Aston Villa has always had a great history.”
