“Meghan has announced that she is going down a very different path, starting a new brand with the strangest name,” Smith added, referring to Meghan’s American Riviera Orchard lifestyle company.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are understood to have contacted the Prince and Princess of Wales “privately” last night.

It is not clear if the contact was a phone call, video call or some supportive message. The possibility of Harry flying back to the UK is unknown.

They also issued a statement to Harper’s Bazaar magazine, saying, “We wish health and healing for Kate and her family.”

Kate received a boost of support from her father-in-law, King Charles, who issued a statement expressing his pride in her “courage” and who was diagnosed with cancer just a month ago.

In her statement, the Princess of Wales revealed that she had been diagnosed with cancer following “planned abdominal surgery” in January.

She said she had delayed making any public announcement so she and her husband, Prince William, could tell their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

His statement came amid growing speculation about the princess’s whereabouts in the months following her surgery.

Smith said he hoped this would stop further conspiracy theories and allow him to recover.

“I hope they show some common decency, which perhaps they don’t have to a great extent. I hope they stop speculating about all kinds of hideous and ridiculous things.

But he admitted that online speculation on social media is “much harder to control.”

Smith said his royal sources are “trying to come to an agreement to manage this maelstrom of opinions, speculation and vicious theories” and are “in a state of shock.”

Kate and William’s relationship with Harry and Meghan has fractured in recent years.

The Duke of Sussex, 39, had previously described Kate as the “big sister I never had” after getting engaged to Harry in 2016.

However, her relationship with the Prince and Princess of Wales was shattered following the bitter Megxit, when the Duke and Duchess of Sussex decided to step back from their royal duties.

Meghan was accused of making Kate cry in the run-up to their wedding in 2018, but later told Oprah that it was actually Kate who made her cry.

Tension between the two women came as relations between Prince William and Prince Harry froze.

Kate last met Harry after the Queen’s death in September 2022, when they joined their spouses on a walk in Windsor.

Last week, the rift between William and Harry was more than evident when the brothers made grieving appearances at a memorial event for their mother, Princess Diana, and William walked out of the ceremony before Harry joined via a video link. video.

Kate’s revelation followed a statement from Buckingham Palace which revealed that King Charles had also been diagnosed with cancer.

In February, the palace confirmed that Charles had been diagnosed with a form of cancer, other than prostate cancer, which was discovered while the king was being treated at the private clinic in London for an enlarged prostate.

The King has postponed his public-facing duties, but is said to continue working behind the scenes on his red boxes: his state affairs and official documents.

Sharing Charles’ reaction to the shocking news, Buckingham Palace said: “Her Majesty is “very proud of Catherine for her bravery in speaking out as she did.”

“Following their stay together in hospital, HM has remained in close contact with his beloved daughter-in-law over the past few weeks.”

“Both Their Majesties will continue to offer their love and support to the entire family at this difficult time.”

Royal biographer Smith praised Queen Camilla, who has been attending to her public duties during recovery.

The princess is now on what has been described as a “road to recovery” after beginning chemotherapy treatment at the end of February.

It is for this reason that Prince William walked out of a memorial service for his late godfather, King Constantine of Greece.

Kensington Palace has strongly asked people not to speculate about what cancer they have.

However, they say she is in “good spirits and focused on her recovery.”

“She is enormously grateful to the medical team for the care they are providing her,” a spokesperson said. “He now needs time, space and privacy to complete his treatment and fully recover.”
