For a few weeks, rumors have circulated online suggesting that Kate Middleton is receiving medical care at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas. The conspiracy theory was amplified in a now-viral TikTok, which referred to a recent Reddit post, in which a user shared that they had heard the Princess of Wales stayed at the St. Regis Houston while in town for treatment.

According to a new story in the Houston Chronicle, A Kensington Palace representative has confirmed these rumors are false. The Chronicle also reached out to MD Anderson Cancer Center, who declined to comment due to patient privacy laws.

The Princess of Wales announced her cancer diagnosis in a video this past March (watch above), sharing, "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. This of course came as a huge shock, and William and I have been doing everything we can to process and manage this privately for the sake of our young family."

Since that announcement, there haven't been any real updates on Kate's health. In May, a senior royal aide said the Princess of Wales "will return to work when she has had the green light from doctors," but did not specify what that green light looks like, or share any specific timeline for Kate's return to royal duties.

This past weekend, the Princess wrote a letter to the Irish Guards, apologizing for missing their Trooping the Colour rehearsal. This upcoming weekend is the annual Trooping the Colour, the King's birthday parade, where the entire royal family typically attends. It is as yet unclear if the Princess will make an appearance or not.
