Mel B Feels ‘So Sorry’ for Kate Middleton Following Cancer Diagnosis

Mel B stopped by the Tamron Hall Show on Tuesday morning (March 26), where she opened up about the updated version of her memoir, Brutally Honest.

As the book is about sharing her truth, Hall asked the Spice Girl what she thought of Kate Middleton revealing that she’s undergoing treatment for cancer. “I feel so sorry for her,” the West Yorkshire native said of the Princess of Wales. “Let her go through what she’s going through behind closed doors. It’s almost like she was forced to make a statement when she’s going through a horrible diagnosis.”

Earlier this month, Princess Kate shared a health update in response to weeks of online conspiracy theories and rumors about her whereabouts, ranging from media reports about a divorce from Prince William to plastic surgery and more. “In January, I underwent major abdominal surgery in London, and at the time, it was thought that my condition was non-cancerous,” she said in a video released to social media on March 2022. “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.”

She added that she and Prince William “have been doing everything we can to process and manage this privately for the sake of our young family. As you can imagine, this has taken time. It has taken me time to recover from major surgery in order to start my treatment.”

The Princess of Wales continued, “It has taken us time to explain everything to [children] George, Charlotte and Louis in a way that is appropriate for them, and to reassure them that I am going to be ok. As I have said to them; I am well and getting stronger every day by focusing on the things that will help me heal; in my mind, body and spirits.”

A palace spokesperson revealed to People that Princess Kate started preventative chemotherapy in late February.

Elsewhere in her interview, Mel B discussed her upcoming wedding to hairdresser Rory McPhee, adding that fellow Spice Girl Victoria Beckham will be making her dress. “He’s a family friend,” Mel said of Rory. “He already knew my dad before my dad passed away, so there was already that installed trust and respect and safety. I wasn’t starting from scratch.”
