Kate Middleton Attends Public Event In London For First Time Since Cancer Diagnosis

New Delhi: Kate Middleton, the 42-year-old Princess of Wales, marked her first public appearance since her cancer diagnosis in January this year when she arrived at Buckingham Palace in London to attend the annual Trooping the Colour parade on Saturday. She was pictured wearing a pale outfit, sitting alongside her children and husband William, the Prince of Wales.

As part of the Trooping the Colour parade, the birthday pageantry Saturday for King Charles III, she travelled in a carriage alongside her three children — Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis for the traditional procession through London, according to reports. Bystanders cheered as they caught a glimpse of Kate, dressed in a white dress and wide-brimmed hat.

Prince William rode on horseback for the ceremony, also known as Trooping the Colour, in which troops in full dress uniform parade past the king with their regimental flag, or “colour.”

King Charles, who also is being treated for an undisclosed form of cancer, travelled in a carriage with Queen Camilla, rather than on horseback as he did last year, news agency AP reported.

Notably, Kate announced her public appearance on Friday in a social media post. The Princess said she is making good progress as she is undergoing preventative chemotherapy but is “not out of the woods”. Kate said she had been “blown away” by the thousands of kind messages from across the globe that followed her cancer announcement in March.
