It’s a question that worries Britain and the world: How is Catherine, Princess of Wales? Prince William’s wife has requested privacy and withdrawn after announcing her cancer. Now a designer friend is commenting on the family’s well-being.

Prince William, 41, and Catherine, Princess of Wales, 42, keep a low profile when it comes to their family’s private matters. Catherine’s cancer is no exception. Even when William was asked about his wife’s well-being by visitors at the opening of a suicide prevention center on May 1st, he reacted in keeping with the crown: polite and yet distant. His answer: “Everyone is fine, thank you.”

A person close to the royals seems to see it differently. Amaia Arrieta, a designer who has been responsible for the wardrobe of Prince George, 10, Princess Charlotte, 9, and Prince Louis, 6, has now spoken to The Telegraph.

Prince William + Catherine, Princess of Wales: Designer hopes “they will be back soon”

“I’m heartbroken at the moment. I think they’re going through hell,” the Spanish-born woman was quoted as saying by the British newspaper. She does not provide any details about Kate’s health. Amaia also doesn’t seem to be able to estimate when the Princess of Wales will be able to return to public life, but explains: “I hope they’ll be back soon.”

It is undeniable that Prince William and Catherine are in the midst of one of the most difficult phases of their lives. The 41-year-old wants to manage to live up to his responsibilities towards his wife and children, while at the same time fulfilling his obligations as a senior royal. Catherine, on the other hand, not only has to fight the disease, but as a mother of three she is particularly worried about her children.

In her video message, in which the 42-year-old was last seen, she emphasized that not only her health, but also dealing with her children were central in such a life-changing situation. “Above all, it took time to explain everything to George, Charlotte and Louis in a way that was appropriate for them and to reassure them that I would get well,” Catherine said at the time. In addition, Kate is one of the greatest pillars of the British monarchy. Their temporary loss concerns not only the family, but also the people. In addition, King Charles, 75, is also battling cancer.

Amaia Arrieta has this connection to the royal family

Amaia Arrieta is not a direct employee of the royal family. She runs her own fashion label “Amaia London”, which specializes in children’s clothing. The Spanish-born woman is the mother of three children herself and has been able to dress the young royals for a long time. One of Arrieta’s designer pieces was last seen on Princess Charlotte. The nine-year-old wore a skirt from the label in the Mother’s Day photo that sparked a photo scandal.

Amaia revealed in an interview with The Telegraph that working with the royals fills her with “so much pride” and that she cares about “how they look.” Kate’s cancer has also taken a toll on her and she considers it “really personal.”
