Princess of Wales statement on cancer treatment

Last night, Kate, Princess of Wales, shared a new statement amid her cancer treatment as she confirmed she’d attend Trooping the Colour this weekend.

The royal, 42, shared her cancer diagnosis in March, revealing she was undergoing “preventative chemotherapy”.

Kate has now shared a new statement to the Prince and Princess of Wales’ Instagram page, issuing an update on her treatment.

Kate said: “I have been blown away by all the kind messages of support and encouragement over the last couple of months. It really has made the world of difference to William and me and has helped us both through some of the harder times.

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

The Princess of Wales went on: “My treatment is ongoing and will be for a few more months. 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 starting to do a little work from home.
