The Princess of Wales has made her first public appearance since she was diagnosed with cancer.

Princess Catherine joined her children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis as well as working members of the Royal Family at the The King's Birthday Parade today.




The Princess of Wales is watching the Trooping the Colour from the Buckingham Palace balcony with her children.

Prince William rode on horseback in the procession and did not join Kate, George, Charlotte and Louis in the Glass State Coach on the way to the ceremony.

The princess announced on Friday that she would make her return to public life at Trooping the Colour.

Kate said in a statement ahead of her appearance today: "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."

The Princess of Wales released a video message in March announcing that she had undergone preventative chemotherapy after cancer was found in tests following her significant abdominal surgery at the start of 2024.
