Kate Middleton made her first public appearance since December 2023, attending Trooping the Colour alongside her family. The Princess of Wales was seen with her husband, Prince William, and their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.

This marks the first time Kate has been in the public eye since the Christmas service at Sandringham on December 25, 2023. It is also her first official event since announcing her cancer diagnosis in March.

During the military parade, an event celebrating the monarch's birthday, Kate rode in a state carriage with her children while Prince William participated on horseback. She later watched the parade from the Major-General’s office, accompanied by her children.

The Wales family then joined other royal family members, including King Charles, Queen Camilla, Princess Anne, and Prince Edward, on the balcony.

Kate Middleton shared a personal message on Friday (Jun. 14, 2024), confirming her attendance at the event and providing an update on her health. “I am making good progress, but as anyone going through chemotherapy will know, there are good days and bad days,” she said. On those bad days, you feel weak and tired, and you have to give in to your body resting.”

She continued, “But on the good days, when you feel stronger, you want to make the most of feeling well. My treatment is ongoing and will be for a few more months. On the days I feel well enough, it is a joy to engage with school life, spend personal time on the things that give me energy and positivity, as well as starting to do a little work from home.”

In her closing remarks, Kate expressed gratitude for the public's understanding and shared, “I am learning how to be patient, especially with uncertainty. I will be taking each day as it comes, listening to my body, and allowing myself to take this much-needed time to heal.”
