Will Kate attend Trooping the Colour?

Buckingham Palace recently released a rare update on Kate Middleton and King Charles, as royal fans await The Princess of Wales' return from her long seclusion from public view.

The Palace confirmed that Kate will not participate in Trooping the Colour's traditional rehearsal, known as Colonel's Review, on June 8, while the monarch will ride in a carriage with Queen Camilla to the march on June 15, according to the Palace, as reported by the Daily Mail.

Charles will be accompanied by Camilla as he reviews soldiers from an Ascot Landau carriage during his traditional birthday procession. It appears to be a change based on doctor's recommendations, as the monarch continues to receive cancer treatment.

According to the palace, Lieutenant General James Bucknall, the former Lieutenant General of the Allied Rapid Reaction Corps, would perform the Colonel's Review on Kate's behalf.
