Why Blake Lively is apologising after Kate Middleton’s cancer diagnosis


Putting a full stop to all the theories regarding her public absence, Princess of Wales Kate Middleton on Friday (March 22), revealed that she has been diagnosed with cancer, and is currently under treatment for the same. 

Soon after Kate made the big revelation, Hollywood actress Blake Lively came forward with an apology after she made fun of Kate’s Mother’s Day photoshop gaffe.

Soon after the news of Kate battling cancer was revealed, Blake shared a public apology on her post.  “I’m sure no one cares today but I feel like I have to acknowledge this,” she wrote on her Instagram Stories. “I made a silly post around the ‘photoshop fails’ frenzy, and oh man, that post has me mortified today.”

The 36-year-old star concluded her message, “I’m sorry. Sending love and well wishes to all, always. ❤️.”

Why did Blake Lively make a public apology?

On the UK’s Mother’s Day, Kate Middleton shared a photo showing her posing with her three kids: George (10), Charlotte (8) and Louis (5). Soon after the photo was shared amid speculation about her public absence, it was found out that the first photo released after her abdominal surgery was a doctored image.

While Kate’s photo was the talk of the whole world, Blake also took a moment and made fun of the whole situation. Indirectly taking a dig at Kate’s Mother’s Day post, the Gossip Girl star shared a morphed photo of her. 

On the Instagram handle of her booze company, bettybuzz, Blake shared an edited photo of her, and wrote, “I’m so excited to share this new photo I just took today to announce our 4 new @bettybuzz & @bettybooze products. Now you know why I’ve been MIA.”

Kate Middleton’s cancer diagnosis

The Princess of Wales underwent planned abdominal surgery in January this year. Following this, Kate maintained quite a distance from the spotlight, which sparked a major concern, questioning her months-long absence. 

On March 22, Kate dropped a shocking health update, sharing that she had been diagnosed with cancer. Putting an end to all speculations, Princess revealed that she was diagnosed with cancer after her abdominal surgery. 

Calling her cancer diagnosis a huge shock, Kate said in a video message, “In January, I underwent major abdominal surgery in London and at the time, it was thought that my condition was non-cancerous.”

”The surgery was successful. However, tests after the operation found cancer had been present. My medical team therefore advised that I should undergo a course of preventative chemotherapy and I am now in the early stages of that treatment.”
