Kate Middleton faces ‘same emotions and fears’ as any cancer patient, reveals Palace Press Secretary

Kate Middleton appeared both fragile and resilient at Trooping the Colour, reflecting her ongoing cancer battle.

She admitted to having both “good days” and “bad days” during treatment.

“She might be the Princess of Wales, but she is still a mother and wife,

Experiencing the same emotions, worries, and fears as anyone else in such circumstances,” Ailsa Anderson, former press secretary to Queen Elizabeth.

On June 15, at King Charles’ official birthday parade in London.

The 42-year-old Princess of Wales radiated strength during her first public appearance in nearly six months.

A source close to the royal household noted,

“The treatment is punishing, and it is different for different people and the side effects can be unforgiving.”

Close friends say Kate finds relief in her daily family routines with her children.

Prince George, 10, Princess Charlotte, 9, and Prince Louis, 6.

“The children won’t remember Mummy shaking hands or care,” royal historian Amanda Foreman commented.

“But they will recall Mummy making cakes,

when she went off to the local shop and bought something or took them somewhere.”

Princess Kate shared a personal health update on June 14, confirming her plans to attend Trooping the Colour.

In her first message since announcing her cancer diagnosis in March, she reassured the public that she is “making good progress”

This was despite the challenges of chemotherapy.

She spoke candidly about the ups and downs of her journey.

Further expressing gratitude for the support she has received, adding that she is not “out of the woods yet.”

Over the last three months, the Princess of Wales has been reprioritizing her life.

Focusing on her own needs while drawing strength from her family.

“On the days I feel well enough, it is a joy.

To engage with school life, spend personal time on the things that give me energy and positivity,

as well as start to do a little work from home,” she shared.

Acknowledging the challenges of cancer treatment, she added, “As anyone going through chemotherapy will know… [on] 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.”

Trooping the Colour was one of those good days, despite a torrential English downpour that called for covered carriages instead of the usual open-air variety.

“It would have been difficult to tell that either the King or the princess had been ill and undergoing some pretty rugged treatment,” said Bedell Smith, referring to both Princess Kate and King Charles’ cancer diagnoses and ongoing care this year.

The bond between Kate Middleton and the King was evident as they leaned in and chatted on the Buckingham Palace balcony, presenting a united front.

“Family is really important to the Princess of Wales, and she wanted to be there to support her family,” added a royal source.
