Kate Middleton shares new photo and update, announces 1st public appearance – National

Kate Middleton, Princess of Wales, has released a new photograph of herself and shared with the public that she is making “good progress” on her recovery from cancer.

She also gave royal watchers something to look forward to, writing that she will make her first public appearance since announcing her cancer diagnosis, riding in the parade at King Charles’ birthday celebration this weekend.

In a statement shared to social media Friday, the Princess says she has experienced “good days and bad days” while going through chemotherapy.

“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 wrote.

She also wrote that she hopes to “join a few public engagements over the summer,” but acknowledges she’s “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,” she concluded, before thanking the public for their support.

Saturday’s appearance will be the first time Middleton has appeared in public since Christmas Day. She stepped back from duties in January, revealing she had undergone abdominal surgery for a non-cancerous issue.

However, in March she revealed that doctors had found an undisclosed type of cancer in the aftermath of her surgery and she had begun chemotherapy treatment.

The Princess has not appeared in public or taken on any formal duties since her cancer announcement, instead asking for privacy and understanding while she focuses on her recovery and spends time with her family.
