First diary entry for Princess Kate after surgery


Catherine, Princess of Wales, will attend her father-in-law King Charles III’s birthday celebrations in June, the military said on Tuesday. This is her first official appointment since she underwent an operation.

Royal officials have not yet formally confirmed her attendance, but the British Army said Catherine, married to heir to the throne Prince William, will attend the arms show on June 8 as part of the annual Trooping the Colour.

The king, who is currently being treated for cancer, is also expected to be seen at the main event on June 15, according to the army’s website.

Charles, 75, met with Chancellor of the Exchequer Jeremy Hunt on Tuesday ahead of the government’s official budget announcement on Wednesday.

The British head of state was dressed in a blue suit and a light tie. Pictures were taken when he and Hunt shook hands at Buckingham Palace.

Charles, who became king in September 2022 after his mother Elizabeth II’s death after a 70-year reign, was diagnosed with an unspecified cancer last month.

Kate was seen in public for the first time on Monday after undergoing stomach surgery in mid-January, according to photos by the American TMZ.

The 42-year-old princess has been recuperating largely at home, where she and William live with their three young children in Windsor, west of London. She was released from the hospital on January 29. Royal officials would not say what she was receiving treatment for, but confirmed the condition was not cancerous. She was in hospital for almost two weeks and Kensington Palace said she was unlikely to resume her official duties until after Easter.
