The royal couple was last seen together at the Thanksgiving

This news arrives on the heels of the couple’s recent public appearance at the thanksgiving service for King Constantine, Nikolaos’ father and the last reigning king of Greece.

The service, held on February 27, 2024, at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, was a gathering of members from both the Greek and British royal families.

However, for the first time, Prince William was not there at the event; he withdrew from the ceremony unexpectedly. It was later disclosed that his absence was due to the cancer diagnosis of Kate Middleton. It seems the princess' health condition is more severe than before.
