With the 42-year-old princess one of the world's most-photographed women, her protracted absence has fuelled speculation, particularly online, about her health and whereabouts.

In a lengthy social media post on Friday evening, she said she was "making good progress" with her treatment, which she added is set to last for several more months.

"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," the princess said.

Kate's emotional announcement that she had cancer came just weeks after it was disclosed that her father-in-law King Charles III had also been diagnosed with the condition.

Neither has revealed what type of cancer they have.

Kate explained in her statement that she has had "good days and bad days", and was "taking each day as it comes".

Kate officially made her appearance after months.

Trooping the Colour marks the British sovereign's official birthday and is a minutely choreographed military tradition dating back more than two centuries.
