“She was advised she needed to undergo surgery which has taken place successfully.
“The duchess is receiving the best medical care, and her doctors have told her that the prognosis is good. She is now recuperating with her family.

“The duchess wants to express her immense gratitude to all the medical staff who have supported her in recent days.
“She is also hugely thankful to the staff involved in the mammogram which identified her illness, which was otherwise symptom free, and believes her experience underlines the importance of regular screening.”
Ferguson was being treated at the private King Edward VII’s Hospital in London.
She recorded an episode of her new podcast, Tea Talk, before she went into hospital. Sky News reports that she talks about her diagnosis on the podcast, which will be released on Monday.
