Kate Middleton donated hair to children with cancer before discovering the disease

by

A curious coincidence was revealed this Saturday (23) about Princess Kate Middleton, who revealed last Friday (22) that she had discovered cancer in a video posted on social media.

In 2018, after a visit to the hairdresser, Kate donated hair to young people with the disease in England. The wife of Prince William, the first successor to the throne, also supports several cancer charities.

According to the Daily Mail, Kate told hairdresser Joey Wheeler that she wanted to donate the 18 centimeters of hair she had cut to the Little Princess Trust, a charity that makes royal wigs for children and young people undergoing treatment for the disease.

To go unnoticed, Kate used a pseudonym, according to the newspaper. This often happens when royals want to do something privately.

Kate Middleton spent two weeks in hospital in January after what her publicist called “planned and successful” surgery for a non-cancerous condition.

In a video message published this Friday, however, the princess said that subsequent tests revealed cancer.

“My medical team advised me to undergo preventative chemotherapy treatment, and now I am in the first stages of this treatment,” Kate said in the recording, which took place last Wednesday (20). “This, of course, has come as a huge shock, and William and I have done everything we can to process and manage this privately for the sake of our young family.”

Kensington Palace, the princess and prince’s London home, said it would not provide further details about the type of cancer and said Kate was on a road to recovery. Preventive chemotherapy began in February, according to the official statement.
