Prince William Seen in First Royal Engagement Amid Kate Middleton's Cancer Battle

After taking some time off to be with his wife as she is undergoing cancer treatment, the Prince of Wales attends his first royal engagement where he visited a food charity.

AceShowbiz - Prince William is returning to royal duties. On Thursday, April 18, the Prince of Wales attended his first royal engagement since his wife Kate Middleton announced her cancer diagnosis.

After taking some time off to be with Kate as she's undergoing treatment, William visited a food charity. He met some of the people behind the non-profit group Surplus to Supper, which delivers food that would otherwise have been discarded by stores to the disadvantaged.

During the royal engagement, he put on an apron as he helped prepare meals. He was also seen mingling with members of the dedicated staff.

The official Twitter account also shared some photos from the event. "A brilliant model for sustainability, fresh food that would otherwise have gone to waste is redistributed for free to support foodbanks, schools, care homes, shelters, clubs and religious organisations across the local community," the account wrote in the caption.

In another post, the account shared, "Joining the inspirational Surplus to Supper and seeing how they redistribute 25,000 meals a year across Surrey and West London."

During the visit, William also received get-well cards for his wife Kate and father King Charles. In a video posted by ITV on X, William was heard telling volunteer Rachel Candappa, "Oh some cards, oh, you're very kind." He continued, "Thank you very much, that's very kind of you." When Rachel told the prince to look after his wife, he promised that he would.

Back in March, Kate ended wild conspiracy theories surrounding her in a video as she opened up about her health issues. She said that cancer was discovered during tests conducted after her surgery in January.

"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," the Princess of Wales shared. "As you can imagine, this has taken time. It has taken me time to recover from major surgery in order to start my treatment. But, most importantly, it has taken us time to explain everything to George, Charlotte and Louis in a way that is appropriate for them, and to reassure them that I am going to be OK."

She continued, "I am well and getting stronger every day by focusing on the things that will help me heal; in my mind, body and spirits. Having William by my side is a great source of comfort and reassurance too. As is the love, support and kindness that has been shown by so many of you. It means so much to us both."

King Charles, who is also battling cancer, showed support for his daughter-in-law after the video was published. In a statement released by Buckingham Palace, he said he's "so proud of Catherine for her courage in speaking as she did."
