Kate Middleton has “good progress” against cancer and announces first public appearance

Kate Middleton said on Friday (14) that she is making “good progress” in her recovery from cancer and that she will make her first public appearance in months at the official celebration of King Charles III’s birthday this Saturday (15).

She said she had “good days and bad days” while undergoing chemotherapy and that she hopes her treatment will continue “for a few more months.” Kate revealed in March that she was diagnosed with an unspecified type of cancer.

Still, he should appear on the balcony of Buckingham Palace with the royal family at Trooping the Color and at King Charles III’s birthday parade. Kensington Palace has released a new photo of the Princess taken earlier this week in Windsor.

“I’m making good progress, but as anyone going through chemotherapy knows, there are good days and bad days,” said the princess.

“On those bad days, you feel weak, tired and have to surrender to your body by resting. But on good days, when you feel stronger, you want to make the most of your well-being,” he added.

“My treatment is ongoing and will continue for a few more months. On days when I feel well enough, it is a joy to get involved with school life, dedicate my personal time to the things that give me energy and positivity, as well as starting to work a little at home”, concluded the princess.

She said she hopes to attend a few more engagements over the UK summer, but acknowledged she is “not out of the woods yet”.

Kate will be riding in a carriage during Trooping the Color on Saturday, accompanied by her children. She will watch the rest of the parade with her family nearby and is expected to join other royals on the balcony.

It represents a significant moment in the princess’s recovery, marking her first public appearance since Christmas Day — weeks before her cancer diagnosis.

At the same time, it does not represent a return to public duties. Additionally, during your recovery, all appearances will be accompanied by medical guidance and will be subject to change if necessary.

“I have been overwhelmed by all the kind messages of support and encouragement over the last few months. It really made a huge difference to William and me and helped us get through some of the toughest times,” Kate wrote.

“I’m learning to be patient, especially with uncertainty. Taking each day as it comes, listening to my body and allowing myself to take this much-needed time to heal,” he added.

Kate Middleton stepped back from public duties for the first time in January this year, following what Kensington Palace initially reported was surgery for a non-cancerous abdominal condition.

In March, amid speculation about her well-being, she revealed in a video message that she had been diagnosed with cancer following the operation.

“My medical team therefore advised that I undergo a course of preventative chemotherapy,” the princess explained in that update, adding that she was in the early stages of that treatment.

The princess’ cancer diagnosis stunned the UK and the world, especially as it came shortly after Charles announced he had also been diagnosed with cancer.

Neither royal has specified the type of cancer they are receiving treatment for or revealed details about its progress.

Charles highlighted in March that he was “very proud” of Kate, his daughter-in-law, for “her courage in speaking out as she did” in sharing her diagnosis.

Kate has not appeared in public or held any formal roles since her announcement, but her husband, Prince William, has returned to activities.

He recently traveled to France for events marking the 80th anniversary of D-Day, alongside his father, King Charles III.
