However, the journalist has now said he is “ashamed” by the speculation, and wishes Kate well.

“As someone who speculated on this without considering that it could be a serious health condition, I'm very ashamed to be honest, and all the best to her,” Jones wrote in a post on X/Twitter.

Elsewhere, pressure is mounting on other public figures who have shared their opinions and speculation about Kate's whereabouts to apologise.

On social media, fans are asking presenter John Oliver to retract a joke he made during an appearance on the channel Watch what happens live with Andy Cohen.

“There's a non-zero chance she'll die before 18 months,” Oliver quipped earlier this month. “They could be on a weekend at Bernie's in that situation. I'm not saying it happened, but I'm saying it's zero until proven otherwise. Until we see her sitting there with a copy of today's newspaper.”

Piers Morgan criticized Oliver for his words and deemed anyone who supports Kate's request for privacy, but has previously speculated on her whereabouts, “shameless hypocrites.”

Some social media users also took to Kim Kardashian to acknowledge the news of Kate's cancer diagnosis after she previously captioned a photo of herself next to a car with the caption “On my way to find Kate.”
