Prince William Is "Focused on" Making Sure Kate Middleton Has Total Privacy Right Now

It's been several weeks since Kate Middleton broke her silence and revealed via a video message that she's undergoing preventative chemotherapy due to an unexpected cancer diagnosis.

And now sources are opening up to People about how Kate overcame her shyness to deliver the news amid a massive spotlight, and how William's doing his best to protect her.

"It is a message from the princess about her health, and she wanted to personally deliver the message on her own," a palace source tells People, noting that Prince William is "supporting her throughout" and is "is extremely proud of his wife for the courage and strength she has shown not just this week but since her surgery in January. Now more than ever, he's focused on ensuring his wife has the privacy she needs to fully recover and that his children are shielded from the understandable interest in the news that has been shared."

Meanwhile, biographer Sally Bedell Smith tells the outlet that Kate was "forthright," adding that she "is inherently shy, and for her to do that took a lot."

"She was mindful there are very few people who read about that or watched that who doesn’t know someone who has cancer. She was mindful of that," Bedell Smith said. "It was a way of reassuring people not only about her condition but helping them have courage."

Kate is taking a break from royal duties as she focuses on her recovery, and the Palace hasn't revealed when she's expected back in the public eye.
