This expression of gratitude marks the conclusion of the public aspect of Catherine’s diagnosis, with Kensington Palace urging an end to speculative discussions. As they enter a period of family time during the school Easter holiday, the couple aims to shield their children from the public spotlight.

The royal family’s decision not to attend the traditional Easter Sunday church service has received plenty of attention, with hopes that King Charles III will lead the family in their absence.
