Catherine, Princess of Wales is reportedly “considering” making a return to the spotlight for the first time she went public with her cancer diagnosis.

The 42-year-old revealed in March she was undergoing preventative chemotherapy treatment to battle an undisclosed form of the illness and she has not taken part in public engagements since but a new report suggests she might make an appearance on the Buckingham Palace balcony after the Trooping the Colour ceremony in June.

The Mirror newspaper reports: “Kate … is understood to be considering making an appearance on the Buckingham Palace balcony after the Trooping the Colour ceremony if she is feeling well enough.”

The report comes after a Kensington Palace representative confirmed the princess would not be taking part in the Colonel’s Review – the event’s official dress rehearsal on June 8 – but they did not rule out a potential appearance at the Trooping the Colour a week later on June 15.

Trooping the Colour is a ceremonial event held annually to celebrate the monarch’s birthday. It’s also known as the Sovereign’s Birthday Parade and takes place in London with the monarch joining a procession of around 1,200 soldiers and musicians and more than 200 horses.

It also involves a fly-past and an appearance by the monarch on the Buckingham Palace balcony.

King Charles – who is also battling cancer – will take part in the Trooping the Colour event but he’s expected to inspect soldiers from a carriage alongside his wife Queen Camilla rather than on horseback.

The 75-year-old monarch was diagnosed with cancer earlier this year, but he has returned to public life in recent weeks by carrying out a series of public engagements even though he is still undergoing treatment.
