‘I have tabled this Matter of the Day today to send our very best wishes to Her Royal Highness, The Princess of Wales, following her recent Cancer diagnosis. This came as a great shock to our Nation, and right across our World.

The Princess of Wales, Kate spoke out incredibly courageously since our last sitting, in a video released on 22nd March to share with the world, that she is currently undergoing cancer treatment after her surgery in January of this year.

This shook our nation, and we offer our very best wishes to Her Royal Highness for a full and swift recovery.

Whilst this news caused great alarm across the Nation, we must always remember, there is a very personal side for their young loving family dealing with this news.

I also want to place on record my very best wishes to His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales, William, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, as they support their loving wife and mother, through this time of great trial.

The news came as an even greater shock, as it was just over 6 weeks, from the announcement that King Charles III, was also undergoing cancer treatment.

This has been a stark reminder to us all, of the devastating impact Cancer can have on families. It is encouraging to see how these recent announcements have led to a significant increase in the number of people having their health checked out, increasing public awareness and the importance of early detection, and diagnosis through Cancer support services, and our NHS.

Prior to the announcement from The Princess of Wales, there had been intense, and often cruel speculation from some media outlets, and through Social Media, and it is imperative that she is given the space and privacy to recover with her closest family.

On behalf of the people of North Down, I want to extend my very best wishes to Her Royal Highness, The Princess of Wales, and our Royal Family at this time. They are in our thoughts and prayers in the days ahead, and all those who continue to fight this terrible disease.’
