Kensington Palace revealed that Prince Williams's no-show wasn't related with the health of the Princess of Wales

GB News Royal correspondent Cameron Walker has said that The Palace would tell us if there was a "major problem" with Kate Middleton after tongues were set wagging when the Prince of Wales cancelled his attendance at a memorial service for the late King Constantine of Greece, citing "personal reasons".

There has been speculation that this could have to do with the health of the Princess of Wales after she recently went for a "planned abdominal procedure."

However, Walker squashed these rumors and told Patrick Christys on GBN America: "We had 45 minutes before the start of the service when we found out that Prince William would no longer be attending.

"His name was printed in the order of service because he was meant to be doing a reading. So this was incredibly last minute.

"I'm assured that it's that the Princess of Wales is still doing well, which suggests to me it's nothing to do with Kate. I also understand that Prince William's absence has nothing to do with King Charles's health either.

"The King has cancer and therefore is not attending any public engagements at the moment.

"So the question is, well, what on earth is it? And surely they would tell us if it's a major medical issue.

"So it appears that's not the case, but the fact that it was such a last-minute cancellation suggests that it was pretty significant.

"There is a little bit of light at the end of the tunnel though. I understand that this is the only engagement of Prince Williams that's affected by this personal issue.

"He has future engagements in the diary and I understand that they are not going to be affected. So I don't think it's a major cause for alarm.

"But what it does show us is that this slimmed-down monarchy, has become very slim indeed in the last month or two.

"It is quite fragile because we've only had one senior member of the British Royal Family in attendance at this memorial service for King Constantine of Greece, who was Prince William's godfather before he passed away and that was Queen Camilla."

Camilla was joined by Princess Anne, Prince Andrew, and others at the service in St George's Chapel on Tuesday.

Prince Andrew was pictured leading the Royal Family to the service for St George's Chapel alongside his ex-wife, Sarah Ferguson after William pulled out of the event.

Andrew smiled as he strode ahead of Sarah followed by their daughter Princess Beatrice with husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, the Princess Royal and her husband Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence, Zara and Mike Tindall and the King’s cousin Lady Sarah Chatto.

Constantine II’s widow Queen Anne-Marie was joined by their children, Crown Prince Pavlos, Princess Alexia, Prince Nikolaos, Princess Theodora, Prince Philippos, and a number of their grandchildren.
