Kate Middleton Shares Major Update In First Photo Since Cancer Announcement: ‘Making Good Progress’

Kate Middleton is sharing a new update on her cancer journey. The Princess of Wales issued a rare photo and heartfelt message as she continues treatment, telling well-wishers in a written statement on June 14 that she is feeling good about her prognosis and has plans for returning to public appearances in the coming weeks. Kate looked as poised as ever in the new portrait from photographer Matt Porteous, dressed in a chic blazer and dark denim while posing against a tree in a serene landscape. The 42-year-old mom of three explained in her note how she’s handling the ups and downs of her medical situation while staying positive about the future of her royal duties, confirming that she will attend the King’s birthday parade as part of Trooping the Colour festivities. “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,” she wrote in part.
