Prince William Pulls Out Of Memorial Service For Personal Matter While Kate Middleton Remains Well

Prince William has pulled out of attending a royal engagement last-minute for a personal matter. The Prince of Wales was set to attend a memorial service in honor of his late godfather King Constantine of Greece on Tuesday morning, which was held at Windsor Castle. However, Kensington Palace confirmed in a statement obtained by NBC News that same morning that William was no longer able to attend due to the personal matter. The nature of the personal matter that prompted his absence was not specified. The decision comes as his wife Kate Middleton continues to recover from abdominal surgery, though a palace source assured on Tuesday, per multiple outlets, that the Princess of Wales “continues to be doing well.” Multiple outlets additionally report that William backing out of the service is understood to not be related to the health of King Charles, who is battling cancer.
