Kate Middleton facing mean comments online and health rumors before her cancer news is a sign of how social media can hurt people.

A person who used to advise Kate, Paddy Haverson, says the negativity she got was really bad.

He talked to BBC and said, "Well, it feeds off itself. It's a sort of permanent doom loop. And it’s the worst I’ve ever seen."

He also said, "I'm absolutely convinced that if we hadn’t had all the madness and social media, if we hadn't had the sort of the Mother’s Day photo mistake, they would have still done it like this."

He was talking about Kate’s video she shared about her cancer. "They would have still waited till this last Friday when the schools are breaking up to make the announcement."

"We just have to come to terms with the new reality, there’s fewer of them," he said. "And so everyone just needs to sort of understand that they will still be busy, they will get over this.

"I am highly confident that the King, who I know well, is incredibly strong, very resilient, a great spiritual person, so I know he’ll get through it."

Talking about what's next for Kate, he said, "And likewise with the princess, with Kate, I think once they’re through this sticky patch, I think we’ll get back to normal.

"I think the nation just needs to adjust, and the media, and everyone who follows this, to a smaller family but still very busy doing what they do in their own way."
