Kate Middleton Gives First Health Update Since Cancer Announcement

The Princess of Wales has penned a moving personal message thanking the public for their support over her cancer diagnosis and revealing she will attend Trooping the Colour tomorrow.

Kate, 42, who disclosed back in March that she was undergoing ‘preventative chemotherapy’ for an undisclosed form of the disease, says her treatment is ongoing and will be for several months to come.

While she will not be returning to public duties full time, she does now feel well enough, however, to undertake a small number of public engagements in the coming months.

The first will be at the King’s official birthday parade tomorrow where she will ride in a carriage with her children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis before appearing on the Buckingham Palace balcony alongside the rest of the Royal Family.

To mark the news Kensington Palace have also released a stunning new portrait of the princess taken at Windsor this week by Matt Porteous showing her looking well and in a reflective mood.

In her message the Princess says she has been ‘blown away’ by all the kind messages of support and encouragement over the last couple of months.

‘It really has made the world of difference to William and me and has helped us both through some of the harder times,’ she wrote.

Movingly she reveals she is making ‘good progress’, but adds: ‘As anyone going through chemotherapy will know, there are good days and bad days.

‘On those bad days you feel weak, tired and you have to give in to your body resting. But on the good days, when you feel stronger, you want to make the most of feeling well.’

She added: ‘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.

‘I’m looking forward to attending The King’s Birthday Parade this weekend with my family and hope to join a few public engagements over the summer, but equally knowing I am not out of the woods yet.

‘I am learning how 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.

‘Thank you so much for your continued understanding, and to all of you who have so bravely shared your stories with me.’

    Prayers for Princess Kate for her speedy and complete recovery. I’m guessing the royal family are non-believers because asking for Prayers were never mentioned in this article?

  • Spencer says:

    No doubt this woman hadn’t a clue of the mess she was marrying into. Then she bought in to the death jab.

  • Judy Aubuchon says:

    Princess Catherine is in my every prayer. Her strength during these uncertain times, is a testament to the person she really is. I‘m praying for the day she can put this dreaded disease behind her. I also pray the same prayer for King Charles. May God bless each of them with a full recovery. Heavenly Father, hear my prayer.
