The Royal Family's Continued Concerns About Prince William: Health Crisis and More

Prince William has a plate full of worries. In the wake of his wife, Princess Kate Middletonand his father, King Charles III‘s respective cancer diagnoses, the member of the royal family is juggling a return to public duties.

However, his tensions go far beyond just the health of the members of the royal family.

Brothers at war

The broken relationship between William and his younger brother, Prince Harry, shows no signs of improvement. (Harry reportedly learned about Kate’s cancer diagnosis along with the rest of the world.) “There has been no further contact between William and Harry,” says a source. “Harry and Meghan have contacted him but that has not opened the lines of conversation. They still don’t communicate.”

A vulnerable Karel

On February 5, Buckingham Palace revealed that Charles had been diagnosed with an unspecified form of cancer after undergoing treatment for an enlarged prostate a few weeks earlier. In March, royal author Christopher Andersen told Us he believes Charles’ prognosis is “more serious than we want to believe,” adding, “William has the double whammy of having to watch his father and his wife deal with this.”

The royal line of succession has been shaken and shifted – but where do members of the British royal family stand when it comes to their place in the line to the throne? Queen Elizabeth II had been head of the Commonwealth since 1952, when she died in September 2022 at the age of 18. […]

The princess’s absence is palpable as she has largely remained out of the public eye since being diagnosed with cancer following a planned abdominal surgery in mid-January. “The nation is committed to seeing Kate get better,” says royal expert Tessa Dunlop. “The monarchy needs her.” Fellow royals expert Gareth Russell says she may attend the annual Trooping the Color in June, but notes “that could change at a moment’s notice.”

Dad duties

While Kate undergoes treatment, William has his hands full at home with George, Louis and Charlotte. He is said to take them to and from school, and during their recent spring break, the hands-on dad spent time painting and shooting archery. “All of them [also] I love cards,” said a source. “That is something that Kate can also be involved in and that they have always enjoyed doing as a family.”

According to reports, Kate’s parents… Carole And Michael Middelton, are in debt of more than $300,000 after selling their children’s party supplies company, Party Pieces, in 2023 after 36 years in business. “It has been devastating for the family, but Carole will be most concerned about Kate’s well-being at the moment,” says royal commentator Afua Hagan. “She will do everything she can to protect Kate from this.”

Face of the monarchy

Despite some help from Queen Camille and his uncle and aunt, Princess Sophie And Prince EdwardWilliam is by far the most public-facing royal at the moment, attending a series of gatherings and events solo, including the BAFTAs. “The entire fate of the monarchy rests on his shoulders,” says Andersen. “I’m sure it’s a crushing weight, and it’s happening a lot sooner than he thought it would happen.”

Edward and Sophie get on

The company is making some changes on the front line. On April 8, Prince Edward (King Charles’ youngest brother) and his wife, Duchess Sophie, took center stage at a historic military event at Buckingham Palace. Charles asked the Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh to receive dignitaries including Her Excellency Hélène Duchêne, the French ambassador to Britain, at the high-profile affair. It is a clear sign that there has been a changing of the guard in the royal family. Royal historian Russell, author of The Palace: from the Tudors to the Windsors, 500 years of British history at Hampton Courtsays it’s likely Edward, 60, Sophie, 59, and their daughter, Dame Louise Windsor20,” will otherwise be placed in the higher working royal status [things are] untenable.”
