Prince William provides latest update on wife Kate Middleton following cancer diagnosis

Prince William gave a positive update about wife Kate Middleton’s cancer treatment, telling a well-wisher ‘she’s doing well’.

He was asked about the Princess of Wales as he toured the only hospital on the Isles of Scilly to learn about a major building project to improve facilities being constructed on land owned by his Duchy of Cornwall.

Tracy Smith, administrator at St Mary’s Community Hospital in Hugh Town, greeted William when he arrived and hosted his tour of the small medical centre following his visit to the harbour where he bought his entourage Cornish pasties.

Ms Smith said: ‘I asked William about his wife Kate and he said: “She’s doing well, thanks,” and I suggested they might like to come for a visit and bring the children.’

William was given a card for his father the King – also a cancer patient – and Kate by Matron Lynda McHale, who said: ‘It was a card from my granddaughter who wanted to wish his father and wife “get well soon”.’

As heir to the throne, William is Duke of Cornwall and receives an income from the Duchy of Cornwall, a portfolio of land, property and investments which owns much of the Isles of Scilly and nearly a third of residential buildings.

He travelled to Hugh Town to break the earth for the new facility, which will provide care and inpatient beds and a maternity suite, and tour St Mary’s harbour, which is run by the duchy and handles everything from ‘Tripper Boats’ to fishing vessels and cargo ships, making it a crucial part of island life.
