All eyes will be on Princess Kate on Saturday, who is due to make her public comeback since being treated for cancer, during the traditional military parade organized for King Charles's birthday III.

While it has been six months – since her last appearance shortly before Christmas – since she withdrew from any public commitment to undergo preventive chemotherapy, the Princess of Wales announced Friday evening that she would attend this festive event due to the “good progress” of his treatment.

In a message published on social networks, Prince William's wife gave news of his health for the first time since announcing his illness in a video at the end of March.

“I'm making good progress, but as anyone going through chemotherapy knows, there are good days and bad days,” Kate, 42, wrote in the post, along with a photo taken this week in Windsor using his services.

She specified that her treatment must continue “for several more months” and described how on the most difficult days, she feels “weak, tired”, and conversely wants to “make the most of” the moments when she feels better.

“I am looking forward to attending the King's Birthday Parade this weekend with my family and hope to be able to participate in some public engagements this summer, knowing that I am not still out of the woods,” she announced again, thanking the public for their support.

He is usually present in large numbers to attend this military parade, called Salut aux Couleurs (Trooping the color) and marked in June since 1748 the sovereign's birthday, even though Charles III turns 76 on November 14.

There is no doubt that many admirers of the royal family will especially make the trip to try to see Kate, the glamorous asset of the monarchy.

Hello to the balcony

The princess should travel down the Mall, the main avenue which leads to Buckingham Palace, in a carriage, accompanied by her three children, and join the other members of the royal family after the salute parade on the balcony.

The king, also suffering from cancer and currently undergoing treatment, will be present, having resumed his public engagements at the end of April, after his doctors said they were “sufficiently satisfied with the progress made so far”.< /p>

His first trip was to visit a cancer treatment center.

He also traveled to France in early June with Queen Camilla for the celebrations of the 80th anniversary of the Normandy landings.

The royal couple is due to receive Emperor Naruhito of Japan and his wife Empress Masako for a state visit at the end of June.

But this year, the king will participate in the military parade aboard a carriage and not on horseback like last year, the palace clarified.

His son and heir to the throne William, 41, will ride in the parade, which starts at Buckingham Palace and goes down the Mall to Horse Guards Parade, where the monarch takes the royal salute before inspecting the troops.

Police have warned that the event will require a “significant” security operation, as the anti-monarchy movement Republic is planning to protest.

Objects such as megaphones and other “sound amplifiers” will be banned from the route, so as not to disturb the horses of the mounted regiments taking part, police said.
