Kate Middleton with an address to her subjects for the first time after the announcement of the diagnosis

Kate Middleton, who announced three weeks ago that she had been diagnosed with cancer, addressed her subjects publicly for the first time since then.

Together with Prince William, she posted an official appeal on social networks after the tragic events in Sydney, where an unknown man attacked people with a knife in a shopping center. As Australia is among the 15 countries in the Commonwealth of Nations where King Charles III is the monarch and acts as head of state, the Prince and Princess of Wales could not ignore what had happened.

"We are shocked and saddened by the terrible events in Sydney this morning. Our thoughts are with all those affected, including the families of the victims and the heroic rescuers who risked their lives to save the lives of others," Kate and William wrote.

An unidentified man armed with a knife attacked shoppers at the Westfield Bondi Junction shopping center in Sydney's east. As a result of his actions, six people died and seven others were injured. The perpetrator acted alone. According to media reports, a police officer who was nearby entered the mall after receiving a report of the attack. When she caught up with the attacker, he raised a knife. She opened fire and shot the man.

It is also known that one of the visitors of the shopping center tried to stop the attacker. It was a man who spoke Russian. He detained the perpetrator on the escalator with the help of a pole from the fence.

BGNES recalls that Kate Middleton announced that she was diagnosed with cancer on March 22. The princess stopped appearing in public after her abdominal surgery, and this became the subject of many conspiracy theories. Many believed that the spread of gossip and pressure from the press forced the princess to reveal her diagnosis earlier than she had planned. However, even her statement did not stop fans of conspiracy theories: the authenticity of Kate's last video continues to be discussed on the Internet./BGNES
