A staffer at BBC Studios, which filmed the video of Kate Middleton announcing her cancer diagnosis, has denied suggestions that the footage was edited after the princess recently came under fire for doctoring a Mother's Day photo of herself with her children.

In the video posted on Friday, the 42-year-old mother of three said she had cancer and was undergoing chemotherapy after having “major abdominal surgery”. She did not specify the type of cancer.

“BBC Studios filmed a message from the Princess of Wales at Windsor this week. “We would like to wish Her Royal Highness a speedy recovery,” BBC Studios said in a short statement after publishing the footage showing an emaciated Middleton.

“In January, I had major abdominal surgery in London, and it was thought at the time that my condition was not cancerous. “The surgery was a success,” the future queen said in the video, which was said to have been filmed on Wednesday.

“However, tests after the operation showed the presence of cancer. My medical team therefore advised me that I should undergo a course of preventive chemotherapy and I am now in the early stages of this treatment.

The studio's false comments came in the wake of a Mother's Day photo released by Kensington Palace earlier this month showing Middleton with her three children, a photo that was later found to have been doctored.

The Princess of Wales later tweeted her apologies.

“Like many amateur photographers, I sometimes experiment with editing,” the princess wrote. “I wanted to express my apologies for any confusion caused by the family photo we shared yesterday.”

Chris Ship, royal editor at ITV News, believes Middleton chose to reveal her cancer diagnosis via video to make it “personal”.

“It's a moment that she chose to do on video, which is very different from doing it in a written statement. What can we read into that?” ITV News host Charlene White asked on Friday.

“If you look back at the way the King revealed his cancer diagnosis earlier this year, it was in a statement issued by Buckingham Palace. I'm told Kate did it in video form because she wanted to do it in the most personal way possible,” she said. possible.

“Yes, of course, it helps silence all the conspiracy theorists as well, but she wanted to send the video message and it was a very poignant message as well. And she wanted to make that personal statement herself.
