Catherine, the Princess of Wales, announced on Friday that she will participate in a parade on Saturday celebrating King Charles III’s birthday. This marks a tentative return to public life after revealing in March that she is undergoing cancer treatment.

Catherine’s announcement came in a deeply personal six-paragraph statement, highlighting her progress since her hospitalization for abdominal surgery earlier in the year. Despite the advancements in her health, she acknowledged that she still has a long road to full recovery.

Both she and the King of England, Charles III, have been undergoing cancer treatment.

The Princess of Wales took to Twitter to give an update on her condition.

I have 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.

I am making good progress, but 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.

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.

The New York Times explained that “even this cautious return to normalcy will be a significant source of relief for the British royal family, which has struggled in recent months as both Catherine and Charles, her father-in-law, battled serious health problems.

Charles and Catherine are among the family’s most visible members. Their illnesses and sudden absence put a strain on the family, which was still coming to terms with the death of Queen Elizabeth II in September 2022.

Charles, who was hospitalized for treatment of his prostate in January, began to return to public duties in April. Last week, he took part in ceremonies to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the D-Day landings. He has looked healthy in recent appearances, though Buckingham Palace has released few details about his treatment or prognosis.

Charles marked his 75th birthday in November. But the formal birthday celebration, known as Trooping the Color, will be held on Saturday, as 1,400 officers of the Household Division parade before the king on a route that takes them from Buckingham Palace along the Mall to Horse Guards Parade, and back to the palace.”

A Buckingham Palace spokesperson said, “His Majesty is delighted that The Princess is able to attend tomorrow’s events, and is much looking forward to all elements of the day.”

King Charles resumed public-facing duties in late April after beginning his treatment.
