The remark by king comes shortly after the princess announced that she has been fighting cancer in private for months.

On Friday, the Princess of Wales released a video statement, wherein she announced that she has been diagnosed with cancer, which the doctors found post her abdominal surgery. The princess underwent the operation in January this month, and since then has maintained a low key appearance, away from public eye.
