Meanwhile, his wife Kate Middleton is believed to have stayed behind as she continues her recovery from an undisclosed form of cancer.

Reflecting on the last six months, that saw the princess undergo an abdominal surgery for mysterious reasons and King Charles’ receiving a cancer diagnosis of his own, friend of William underscored the “hell of a year” for the prince.

When the pal gladly expressed they “were not him,” the future King of England “responded with a fleeting but rueful smile,” as per the outlet.

Besides dealing with double cancer blow of two of the most important figures in his life, William has been forced to combat unfounded conspiracy theories about Kate’s whereabouts, owing to her absence from the public eye until last Saturday.

Moreover, rumours of his affair with family friend Rose Hanbury also resurfaced, coupled with a deluge of allegations.

The prince responded with anger and frustration. “In a way that has been quite a useful foil,” shared one of his circle. “It has added to his resilience, which he has always possessed, and I think it is fair to say it has helped him cope.”
