The Princess of Wales shared the news of her cancer diagnosis in a video released Friday, following a period of absence from the public spotlight due to abdominal surgery in January.

“I wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you, personally, for all the wonderful messages of support and for your understanding whilst I have been recovering from surgery,” she said in a video. “It has been an incredibly tough couple of months for our entire family, but I’ve had a fantastic medical team who have taken great care of me, for which I am so grateful.”
