Princess Kate is set to miss a royal event on Monday, two days after she returned to public life at Trooping the Colour.

On Saturday, the Princess of Wales made her first public appearance since December 2023.


The princess attended the King's Birthday Parade alongside her children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

Kate also shared a touching moment with King Charles on the Buckingham Palace balcony as working members of the Royal Family watched the flypast.

However, the Princess of Wales will not appear at Garter Day on Monday.

Garter Day is an annual service to mark new appointments to the senior and oldest British Order of Chivalry.

King Charles and Queen Camilla are due to attend alongside other members of the Royal Family.

This year, the King has appointed The Baroness Manningham-Buller to the office of Chancellor of the Order of the Garter and The Lord Ashton of Hyde as the Master of the Horse.

The Order of the Garter is Britain’s oldest and most senior Order of Chivalry, founded by Edward III in the 14th century.

The royal's appearance at Trooping the Colour does not signal a return to undertaking public duties.

The Princess of Wales is hoping to join a few public engagements over the summer but she will not attend Garter Day or Royal Ascot this week.

Kate said in a statement ahead of her appearance at Trooping the Colour: "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."
