Princess Catherine Breaks Her Silence -- Apologies For Missing Trooping The Colour Rehearsal Amid Cancer Treatment!

Princess Catherine is sending her regards to the Irish Guards.

As Kate Middleton undergoes chemotherapy amid her battle with cancer, she has skipped out on several events, with the latest being the dress rehearsal of Trooping the Colour. Kensington Palace confirmed last week she would not be carrying out her duties as the Inspecting Officer at the Colonel’s Review on Saturday. Lieutenant General James Bucknall, KCB, CBE, would take over the job for Catherine that day instead. Now, she broke her silence about missing it.

Taking to X (Twitter) on Saturday, the Irish Guards shared a letter from the Princess of Wales in which she apologized for her absence at the major rehearsal. She wrote:

“I wanted to write and let you know how proud I am of the entire regiment ahead of the Colonel’s Review and Trooping the Colour. I appreciate everyone trooping this year has been practicing for months, and dedicating many hours to ensuring their uniforms and drill are immaculate. Being your colonel remains a great honor and I am very sorry that I’m unable to take the salute at this year’s Colonel’s Review. Please pass my apologies to the whole Regiment, however I do hope that I am able to represent you all once again very soon. Please send my very best wishes and good luck to all involved.”

Catherine concluded the touching letter by saying, “Quis Separabit,” and signing off as “Colonel Catherine.” Of course, the Irish Guards said they “were deeply touched” by the note, adding:

“We continue to wish Her Royal Highness well in her recovery and send Her our very best wishes.”

A very sweet gesture! It’s still unknown if Catherine plans to be at Trooping the Colour on June 15 in some sort of capacity, even just appearing on the balcony with the royal family. However, no one should hold out hope for her showing up! Not only because of her absence at the rehearsal, but a report suggested she may not return to work until the fall. In fact, an insider for Us Weekly claimed she “may never come back in the role that people saw her in before” she started her cancer treatment! Even though she is reportedly “doing a lot better” amid her treatment? And what does that mean when she becomes queen? Obviously, she wants to ease back into her duties after dealing with a major health battle. No one expects her to rush back into things! But to not return to her role in the same capacity as before? So wild!

We’ll have to see what happens! Perhaps, she’ll at least return to the public eye for Trooping the Colour next week! Reactions, Perezcious readers? Let us know in the comments below!
