The expert said: “Harry and Meghan were told about Kate’s cancer diagnosis, but only a very short time before the television announcement. Telling them was a huge problem for the palace, because if they’d left Meghan and Harry in the dark until Kate’s TV broadcast there was a real risk the couple would have complained that once again the royal family was treating them badly.”

He added: “Telling them shortly before the TV broadcast meant they couldn’t complain about being ignored while at the same time the palace would know there was less of a risk the couple might spill the beans before Kate’s broadcast.” Following the Princess’ announcement, the Sussexes released a statement which read: “We wish health and healing for Kate and the family, and hope they are able to do so privately and in peace.”
