It became known why King Charles III revealed his diagnosis and Kate Middleton keeps it a secret

What is known about the illnesses of Charles III and Kate Middleton

On January 17, representatives of the British royal family announced two news at once about the hospitalization of Kate Middleton and King Charles III. However, these two statements had one striking difference. The news about the Princess of Wales came after she had been operated on, and the news about the sovereign came on the eve of his surgery, revealing the diagnosis and necessary details.

At the time, they decided to keep the exact diagnosis of Prince William's wife a secret, only specifying that she had undergone "routine abdominal surgery" in the hospital. This secrecy provoked many rumors online, including one about 42-year-old Catherine's "cancer." The palace denied such speculations. In a commentary to PEOPLE magazine, insiders explained why Charles decided to speak openly about his illness, while Kate Middleton did not.

So, on January 25, the King of Great Britain was hospitalized for prostate enlargement. The day before, on January 17, Buckingham Palace reported that during a routine checkup, Charles was diagnosed with a benign tumor that was "treatable." Eventually, the monarch arrived at a hospital in London, where he underwent a "corrective procedure."

"It was wise to announce it more openly because otherwise people might have thought the worst. Charles's health is of great importance to the monarchy. And his decision to talk about his diagnosis has already had an impact: his statement last week led to a 1000% increase in the number of requests for prostate enlargement on the UK National Health Service website," a palace insider told PEOPLE in an exclusive interview.

While King Charles has chosen to be transparent about his diagnosis, Princess Kate, 42, has expressed a "desire to maintain as much of a normal life as possible" for her young children, Prince George, 10, Princess Charlotte, 8, and Prince Louis, 5, according to her office.

While Kate Middleton's planned abdominal surgery was deemed successful and a royal source said she was "doing well," her 10 to 14 day hospital stay and expected three-month recovery at home raised concerns. The palace does not disclose the nature of the princess's illness, but reports that it is not cancerous.

Meanwhile, insiders shared with reporters: "It does sound serious, considering how long it's been going on. But she is in good hands, she will have a lot of care and support at home, and she is a healthy young woman. She will come back to normal. The physiotherapists are amazing, they help you recover and get back on your feet. After abdominal surgery, you need a lot of patience, and it's a little scary at first."

It is known that after her discharge from the hospital, the Princess of Wales will "work from bed" and will not appear in public until Easter, so a number of events planned for that time had to be canceled. During his wife's treatment and rehabilitation, Prince William also reduced his activities. In particular, he canceled all his upcoming trips abroad. In addition to wanting to spend more time with his beloved, the prince also had to take care of his children, who, as you know, do not have a nanny. Raising children is a priority for the couple, so they spend time with their family first, and then work and royal duties.

"The Princess of Wales appreciates the interest this statement will generate. She hopes that the public will understand her desire to maintain as much of a normal life as possible for her children; and her desire for her personal medical information to remain private," Kensington Palace said earlier.

Earlier, OBOZ.UA wrote that the Duchess of York was diagnosed with skin cancer shortly after treatment for another type of oncology. Last year, Sarah Ferguson underwent surgery for breast cancer.
