After remaining away from the spotlight for months, Kate confirmed via a pre-recorded video on March 22 that she has been undergoing cancer treatment and has taken a break from Royal duties.

In an emotional statement on Friday, the mother of three asserted that there are “good days and bad days” in her recovery  from cancer, but added that she’s well enough to make an appearance on the annual ceremony on Saturday.

“I am making good progress, but as anyone going through chemotherapy will know, there are good days and bad days,” she  stated.

“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.”

Catherine acknowledged that although she intends to watch the parade celebrating the King Charles' birthday, she is still constantly battling her illness and feels exhausted sometimes.

“I’m looking forward to attending The King’s Birthday Parade this weekend with my family and hope to join a few public engagements over the summer, but equally knowing I am not out of the woods yet.”

Middleton said she had to pay attention to what her body can tolerate in order to determine if she's ready for her royal responsibilities. She mentioned that she is developing patience, particularly in the face of uncertainty by allowing herself much-needed time to heal and paying attention to her body.

King Charles is delighted over Kate's appearance

According to a Buckingham Palace spokesman who spoke with The Post, the Princess of Wales directly informed King Charles that she would be attending the procession.

“His Majesty is delighted that The Princess is able to attend tomorrow’s events, and is much looking forward to all elements of the day,” the spokesperson added.

Kate has mostly stayed away from the the public eye following her surgery and cancer diagnosis.

An insider previously told Us Weekly that she “may never come back in the role that people saw her in before.”
