Princess Kate, who has been in hiding for the past six months, has finally emerged from her hiding place in order to attend the official birthday party for King Charles. However, the heroic mother of three, who is 42 years old, has shockingly admitted that she is not in good health.

In spite of the fact that she is wearing a lot of makeup, Prince William's wife divulged that the laborious chemotherapy is having a devastating impact on her both physically and mentally. She also shockingly admits that despite the fact that she has been receiving treatment for five months, "I am not out of the woods yet!"

Insiders at the palace were taken aback by her shocking admission.

“We were shocked Kate was so open about her health crisis. She is usually so secretive about personal matters. It seems she’s much sicker than anyone suspected and she may not be able to cover up the truth much longer,” a well-placed senior palace official admitted.

In a statement that Princess Kate released the day before her participation at the Trooping the Colour festival on June 15, the darling of the English public honestly acknowledged that it was very challenging for her to live with the "uncertainty" of her cancer struggle.

“My treatment is ongoing and will be for a few more months. I have good days and bad days. On the bad days, you feel weak, tired and you have to give in to your body resting. I’m taking each day as it comes,” Princess Kate shared.

The mom of three’s nightmare exploded after she underwent secret scheduled abdominal surgery in mid-January and spent two weeks in a London hospital.

In March, she issued a statement shockingly revealing doctors had found cancer when they opened her up and she was canceling all public appearances while receiving “preventative chemotherapy.” Then, Princess Kate, who hadn’t been seen since December, officially dropped out of sight, triggering a firestorm of speculation.

“The deadly diagnosis shattered Kate and the entire family. It came just weeks after King Charles was also found to have cancer, unrelated to a prostate procedure he underwent,” an unnamed source told Globe Magazine.

“No one could believe what was happening. It was an impending disaster for the monarchy. I’m told Kate ordered a news blackout on her condition — believed to be ovarian cancer — but the wall of silence only triggered panic that she was dying or may never be seen in public again. She finally took the advice of the late Queen Elizabeth: ‘You have to be seen to be believed.’ She insisted on attending Trooping the Colour to support King Charles,” the informant said.

“I’m told she and her doctors scheduled her chemo treatments so she would hopefully have a ‘good’ day, then she planned her schedule to the last detail. She had an outfit she’d worn before carefully altered to fit her shrinking body and added an attention-grabbing bow on the shoulder. Her hair was pulled into a chic chignon under her large hat to conceal her hair loss from the chemo, and expert makeup contoured her gaunt cheeks and chin line,” the tipster added.

“It took a lot of effort but somehow on the day she managed to make it look effortless.
“Her attitude seems clear. She doesn’t know what the future holds — or if she’ll even have a future — and she wants to make memories for her family while she can,” it went on.

According to those with knowledge of the situation, Princess Kate's attempt to put an end to rumors about her health by making her first formal appearance since Christmas of last year may have been unsuccessful, as per Business Insider.

“Her own words suggest she is dangerously unwell and there’s more to this story than she or the palace is telling us. Kate knows she’s in the fight of her life and there are so many days she lets the tears flow in private — not so much for herself but for her family. But we have to wonder if Kate will fully recover from this, especially emotionally. Frankly we wouldn’t be surprised if she redefines her royal role, preferring to work for issues she’s passionate about behind the scenes. The persistent buzz in the palace is she may never fully return to the public stage,” the royal courtier said.
