Catherine Middleton, Princess of Wales, undergoes cancer treatment

After weeks of headlines and rumors about her health, Catherine Middleton, the Princess of Wales, released a video message on Friday to share that she is being treated for cancer.

The royal, who had abdominal surgery in mid-January for an undisclosed illness, explained that tests after the surgery had found the cancer, which prompted her medical team to recommend a course of preventative chemotherapy. "I am now in the early stages of that treatment," she explained.

The announcement follows weeks of speculation about her whereabouts, well-being, and an edited Mother's Day photo. Kensington Palace said the princess is expected to make a full recovery, and she said Friday that her family needs "some time, space, and privacy.”

Meanwhile, the US warned that the eastern Ukrainian town of Avdiivka, which has seen some of the worst fighting recently, is at risk of falling into Russian control.
