The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTAs) recently saw the attendance of some famous guests, but it was the appearance of the future King of England, Prince William, that caught everyone’s attention. Prince William seemed a bit sad as he discussed his wife’s recent health issues.

Kate Middleton, Prince William’s wife of 13 years, recently underwent abdominal surgery at The London Clinic for undisclosed reasons. Prince William, respecting his wife’s privacy, chose not to reveal the details to the public.

While the Royal Family is known for being secretive about their health matters, King Charles III has been an exception. He openly shared his own experiences of prostate surgery and a separate cancer diagnosis. In contrast, Prince William revealed that he has watched fewer films lately due to his wife’s health situation. However, he plans to catch up and make a list of movies to watch.

So why all the secrecy surrounding Kate Middleton’s health? Just like many ordinary people, Middleton may prefer to keep her private affairs out of the public eye. This is a reasonable request, but it has sparked conspiracies and questions.

Many wonder why the King is transparent about his health while the ex-Duchess of Cambridge is so private. Kensington Palace confirmed that it is not cancer, but beyond that, the details remain unknown. Some speculate that she may be dealing with Crohn’s Disease, a hysterectomy, or surgery related to complications from giving birth to three children in the last decade.

Regardless of the reason, Middleton’s health issue had a significant impact. It left her needing the support of her immediate family to help care for her children – George, Charlotte, and Louis. Even Prince William stepped back from his royal duties briefly to be there for his wife. However, Middleton is expected to return to her official responsibilities after Easter, once she has made a full recovery.

The BAFTAs may have showcased the glitz and glamour of the film industry, but it also shed light on the personal challenges faced by the future Queen and future King of England.
