Kate Middleton apologises for missing parade, hopes to be back 'very soon'

1 week ago 101

NEW DELHI: The Britain's Princess of

Wales

,

Kate

Middleton, has written a letter to a military regiment apologising for being unable to attend a military parade (Trooping of the Colour parade) on Saturday due to her ongoing preventative chemotherapy treatment for

cancer

, adding that she hoped to be back very soon.
"Being your Colonel remains a great honour, and I am very sorry that I'm unable (to) take the salute at this year's

Colonel's Review

," Kate wrote in a letter to the head of the

Irish Guards regiment

.

"Please pass my apologies to the whole Regiment, however I do hope that I am able to represent you all once again very soon," she added.
In a post on social media platform X, the Irish Guards regiment posted the letter dated June 3 and said that they were touched by the letter and wished her well in her recovery.
"The Irish Guards were deeply touched to receive a letter from our Colonel, Her Royal Highness, The Princess of Wales this morning. We continue to wish Her Royal Highness well in her recovery and send Her our very best wishes. Quis Separabit," the Irish Guards wrote in the post on X.

Last month, Prince William, the heir to the British throne, provided an update on Kate's health, saying that she was "doing well." In March, Kate disclosed that she was undergoing treatment after a cancer diagnosis was made following an abdominal surgery earlier in the year.
The Colonel's Review, which the Irish Guards are participating in, is a precursor to a more prominent parade held a week later as part of the Trooping the Colour celebrations, which commemorate the monarch's birthday. Kate is colonel of the Irish Guards, who are taking part in the event.
Trooping the Colour is a 460-year old tradition in which troops in full dress uniform parade past the king with their ceremonial flag.
