Insider Denies Kate Middleton Cancer Disclosure, Video Redacted: Report

News from the USA

An insider has denied allegations that the video of Kate Middleton announcing her cancer diagnosis was edited after the princess recently came under fire for doctoring a Mother’s Day photo of herself with her children.

In the video released Friday, the 42-year-old mother of three said she had been diagnosed with cancer and was undergoing chemotherapy after “major abdominal surgery.” She did not specify what type of cancer.

“BBC Studios filmed a message from the Princess of Wales in Windsor this week. We would like to wish Her Royal Highness a speedy recovery,” said a brief statement after the footage of an emaciated Middleton was released.

“I had major abdominal surgery in London in January and at the time it was thought to be non-cancerous. The operation was a success,” the future queen said in the video, which was allegedly filmed on Wednesday.

“However, tests after the operation revealed the presence of cancer. That is why my medical team advised me to undergo a course of preventive chemotherapy and I am now in the early stages of this treatment.’

A source insisted to The Mirror that Middleton’s video had not been edited and BBC Studios had no editorial input on her remarks. An insider added that BBC Studios, which also filmed Queen Elizabeth’s funeral and King Charles’ coronation, were not involved in spreading the royal message.

The debunking came after a Mother’s Day photo released by Kensington Palace earlier this month showing Middleton with her three children, an image that was later found to have been doctored.

Major news organizations initially published the image but later retracted it — with the Associated Press saying a closer inspection revealed the source had manipulated the photo in a way that did not meet the news channel’s photo standards.

The Princess of Wales later tweeted her apologies.

“Like many amateur photographers, I sometimes experiment with editing,” the princess wrote. “I wanted to express my apologies for the confusion the family photo we shared yesterday caused.”

Chris Shipp, the royal editor at ITV News, believes Middleton chose to reveal her cancer diagnosis via video to make it “personal”.

“This is a moment that she chose to put on video, which is very different than making it in a written statement.” What can we read into this? ITV News presenter Charlene White asked on Friday, according to The Mirror.

“If you look back at how the King revealed his cancer diagnosis earlier this year, it was in a statement from Buckingham Palace. I’m told that Kate did it in video form because she wanted to do it in the most personal way possible,” Shipp replied.

“Yes, of course, it also helps to silence all the conspiracy theorists, but she wanted to do the video message and it was a very touching message as well. And she herself wanted to make this very personal statement.
