Princess of Wales has cancer – level 3

26-03-2024 15:00

Kate, Britain’s Princess of Wales, recently announced that she is undergoing preventative chemotherapy due to the discovery of cancer following major abdominal surgery in January.

The 42-year-old wife of Prince William described the diagnosis as a huge shock. This revelation adds to the recent health challenges faced by the British royal family, as King Charles is also undergoing cancer treatment. Kate’s initial surgery was successful, but subsequent tests revealed the presence of cancer. She appeared in a video message and stated that she is currently undergoing chemotherapy and is in the early stages of treatment.

Despite the challenging situation, both Kate and Prince William are focused on managing it privately for the sake of their young family. The palace respects Kate’s medical privacy and hasn’t disclosed further details about the type of cancer.

Difficult words: preventative (intended to prevent), subsequent (following), for the sake of (to help or bring advantage to someone).
