Kate wanted to “reassure people” and thought that a video of her would be more compelling than merely issuing a statement. “A written statement, she felt, would be too jarring. It was about people seeing her, and her reassuring people that she was positive about it. Knowing it was news that was going to shock people, she wanted to do it as compassionately as possible.”

In doing so Kate practiced one of the late Queen Elizabeth’s mottos “I have to be seen to be believed.” A close friend of William’s told The Sunday Times that “It was her decision, it wasn’t begrudged, and he fully supported it.”

A second source told The Telegraph that William was in agreement with Kate’s decision and is “extremely proud of his wife for the courage and strength she has shown not just this week, but since her surgery in January.”

Royal expert Rebecca English wrote in The Daily Mail that at a recent royal engagement William looked like he had “the weight of the world on his shoulders. I couldn’t quite put my finger on exactly what it was, but there was a slight sadness around the eyes, and, noticeably, a loss of weight.”

She commended the future king on how he has managed to handle the fact that Kate and his father King Charles are both fighting cancer.

She noted that it is “remarkable that he has even been able to do half of what he has undertaken publicly in recent months—even carrying out investitures for his cancer-stricken father—given everything that has been going on behind the scenes.”
