The Princess of Wales, Kate Middleton, is anticipated to remain out of the public eye for the remainder of the year as she undergoes preventive chemotherapy following her cancer diagnosis earlier this year, according to sources close to the royal family. 

Royal insiders informed The Daily Beast that Princess Kate is being supported by her birth family during this challenging time.

"Kate's diary for this year is empty. There is nothing planned. She may not appear in public for the rest of the year," one source disclosed to The Daily Beast.

Concerns about Princess Kate's prolonged absence have led to speculation and conspiracy theories, prompting discussions within the Palace about potential strategies to address public curiosity. 

"I would not rule out another video message updating the country on her health. That proved to be a very effective way of keeping the conspiracy theorists at bay," a source stated.

Despite the public scrutiny, Princess Kate is prioritizing her health and focusing on her recovery, leaning on her close-knit family for support. 

"The key thing for her now is avoiding any kind of stress or anxiety and just getting on with the business of getting better," a friend of Princess Kate and Prince William commented.

Princess Kate's absence from public life has been noticeable, with the last public appearance dating back five months. 

However, her office has emphasized her commitment to her recovery, stating, "The Princess is continuing her recovery at home. She continues to need the space and time to prioritize her privacy."

As Princess Kate and Prince William prepare for a family-focused week during the school holiday, they are expected to retreat to their country home on the Sandringham Estate, seeking solace and privacy amidst a supportive community. 

Despite rumors and occasional sightings, Princess Kate has maintained a low profile, with fellow parents expressing protective sentiments toward her and her family.
