The reports about the health of British royals continue. First Princess Kate has to undergo abdominal surgery, then King Charles III. admitted to a clinic. Now it hits Duchess Ferguson. Prince Andrew's ex-wife receives another shocking diagnosis.

Britain's Prince Andrew's ex-wife Sarah “Fergie” Ferguson has received another cancer diagnosis. After the Duchess of York was diagnosed with an early form of breast cancer in the summer, skin cancer has now been diagnosed, her spokesman told the British news agency PA and other media in the evening.

Her dermatologist had several moles removed and examined when she underwent reconstructive surgery following her mastectomy (removal of breast tissue). “And one of them was identified as cancerous,” the statement said. She is undergoing further tests to ensure that the disease has been detected at an early stage. “Of course, another diagnosis so soon after treatment for breast cancer is devastating, but the Duchess remains in good spirits.”

Within a few days it is the third news of an illness among the royals. Last week it was announced that Princess Kate would be out for a longer period of time due to abdominal surgery. King Charles III is to be treated in hospital for an enlarged prostate.

Ferguson was previously married to Charles' brother Andrew. At Christmas she was unexpectedly present at the royal family's joint service at the Sandringham country estate in eastern England. She wanted to thank the entire medical team, especially her dermatologist, whose vigilance ensured that the disease was detected, said the statement, which PA and other media quoted. She believes her experience highlights the importance of checking for size, shape, color and texture, as well as the appearance of new moles.
