She expressed gratitude for the many messages of love and support she has received in an Instagram post.
During treatment for breast cancer, a cancerous mole was removed, and the melanoma was discovered during the analysis of several other moles that were also removed while she was undergoing reconstructive surgery.
The Duchess is the third royal to announce a medical procedure this week.
On Monday, she announced on Instagram that she had been diagnosed with malignant melanoma, a form of skin cancer.
This is her second cancer diagnosis within a year, after being diagnosed with breast cancer in the summer and undergoing a mastectomy and reconstructive surgery.
Another cancer diagnosis has been a shock. However, I am grateful for the many messages of love and support.
On Sunday, the Duchess underwent reconstructive surgery following her mastectomy. At the same time, her dermatologist asked that several moles be removed and analyzed. Unfortunately, one of these moles was identified as cancerous.
She is currently undergoing further investigations to ensure that the cancer has been caught in the early stages.
The Duchess believes checking moles’ size, shape, color, and texture is crucial to detecting melanoma.
Sources close to her report that she has returned to the UK after recovering in Austria.
Dealing with a second cancer diagnosis within six months is undoubtedly a significant challenge, but she is a resilient person and has the care and support of her family.
The Duchess has demonstrated impressive resilience in overcoming adversity.
After a routine mammogram screening last year, she received a breast cancer diagnosis.
The Duchess openly shared her treatment journey, encouraging other women to prioritize their health and using her podcast to raise awareness about breast cancer. Her message was one of hope and empowerment, aimed at saving lives.
She had a single mastectomy at King Edward VII Hospital in London, a private clinic used by senior royals.
In the autumn, she made guest appearances as a presenter on ITV’s This Morning. Her working life has also seen her become a successful author.
At Christmas, the Duchess appeared at Sandringham and walked to church with the rest of the Royal Family for the first time in more than 30 years.
The Duke of York, Prince Andrew, was married to the 64-year-old for ten years before their divorce in 1996.

They have two daughters, Princess Beatrice, 35, and Princess Eugenie, 33, and three grandchildren.
Kensington Palace confirmed on Wednesday that the Princess of Wales would remain in the hospital for up to two weeks after undergoing planned abdominal surgery.
The procedure at Kensington Palace was successful. However, the princess is expected to resume royal duties quickly. She will remain in the hospital for up to two weeks.
