“Kate Middleton forced into telling the world that she has cancer by the media. Disgusting,” former boxer Carl Frampton wrote on X.

“I really hope the whole world is happy with how they’ve treated Princess Kate,” Kayla Adams said. “Pretty much forcing her to prove she’s alive, into confirming her diagnosis, and coming up with disgusting conspiracy theories… she’s not complained even once.”

According to Newsweek, the princess’s absence from official public events since her surgery has sparked public concern about her health.

This week, reports revealed that employees at The London Clinic, where Middleton was treated, attempted to access her medical records.

As a result, authorities suspended three employees following the alleged data breach.

“As we learn that Kate Middleton has cancer, it should serve as a lesson to all of us about the reality of being a woman on the internet, the complete lack of empathy and understanding in this space we all inhabit,” Swedish journalist Annika Rothstein said on X.
