Kate Middleton Shines in First Public Appearance During Cancer Fight at 2024 Trooping the Colour

June 15, 2024




LONDON, June 15, 2024 – Princess Kate Middleton, the Princess of Wales, made a stunning appearance at the annual Trooping the Colour event, turning heads and winning hearts after sharing her cancer diagnosis earlier this year. The beloved royal was seen departing Buckingham Palace in a carriage alongside her children, Prince George, 10, Princess Charlotte, 9, and Prince Louis, 6, preceding King Charles III’s official birthday procession through the historic streets of London.

Sporting a radiant smile, Kate waved to the cheering crowds as she followed King Charles and Queen Camilla. Once they arrived at Horse Guards Parade in St. James’s Park, Kate and her children stepped out of their carriage to watch the vibrant and meticulously choreographed parade.

Kate, 42, was a vision of elegance in a white dress by Jenny Packham, complemented by a Philip Treacy hat. As a nod to her role as Colonel of the Irish Guards, she adorned the Irish Guards’ official regimental brooch.

On Friday, June 14, the day before the event, Kate confirmed her participation in a heartfelt statement. “I am making good progress, but as anyone going through chemotherapy will know, there are good days and bad days,” she revealed. “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.”




Her attendance was particularly poignant given that she had missed the rehearsal for the event and had initially planned to sit out the celebration. In a message shared via the Irish Guards’ X (formerly Twitter) profile on June 8, Kate expressed her regret: “I wanted to write and let you know how proud I am of the entire Regiment ahead of the Colonel’s Review and Trooping the Colour. I appreciate everyone trooping this year has been practicing for months, and dedicating many hours to ensuring their uniforms and drill are immaculate.”

She concluded her message with a heartfelt apology for her absence, “Being your Colonel remains a great honor and I’m very sorry that I’m unable to take the salute at this year’s Colonel’s Review. Please pass my apologies to the whole Regiment, however, I do hope that I am able to represent you all once again very soon.”

The Irish Guards responded warmly, wishing Kate the best as her recovery continues.

Kate’s public appearance comes after she took a step back from her royal duties in January following abdominal surgery. In March, she revealed her cancer diagnosis and the necessity to extend her hiatus for chemotherapy treatments. In a prerecorded message, she described the diagnosis as a “huge shock” for her and her family. “William and I have been doing everything we can to process and manage this privately for the sake of our young family,” she said, emphasizing the need for privacy during her recovery.

Despite her battle, Kate remains resilient and focused on healing. “I am well and getting stronger every day by focusing on the things that will help me heal in my mind, body, and spirits,” she stated, adding that her husband Prince William’s support has been invaluable.

Royal expert Christopher Andersen had previously speculated that Kate might not attend Trooping the Colour this year, suggesting that her presence or absence would significantly influence public perception. “She may appear on the balcony; that’s not too much of a strain on her, I wouldn’t think,” Andersen told Us Weekly. He noted that a brief appearance could dispel rumors about her health and provide much-needed clarity.




Kate’s participation in the Trooping the Colour has been a cherished tradition since she joined the royal family. Her presence this year, despite her health challenges, underscored her dedication and strength, offering a moment of inspiration and joy to the public.

As she continues her recovery, Kate’s spirit and grace remain a beacon of hope and resilience, both for her family and the nation.
