Princess Kate may 'never' return to former role after cancer diagnosis: report

 June 6, 2024

Months after she shared her heartbreaking cancer diagnosis, Princess Catherine continues to draw rampant speculation about her health and role within the British royal family.

While she remains out of the public eye, sources believe Catherine "may never come back" to her former public-facing role.

Kate "may never return"

A source told US Weekly that Catherine is "reevaluating what she’s going to be able to take on when she comes back,” noting, “She may never come back in the role that people saw her in before.”

The source said that Kate's recovery is moving along, however.

"Kate’s recovery is going well. She’s not able to see many people because she is susceptible to getting sick and they don’t want her compromised, but she’s up and about.”

Another source told the magazine that Kate, a mom of three, has been "feeling strong enough to be very involved with the kids," adding, "She’s been an active parent.”

Catherine announced the diagnosis in March in a recorded statement, after weeks of relentless scrutiny and conspiracies about her whereabouts. She did not identify the form of cancer but said she was underdoing preventative chemotherapy.

Princess William comments

Prince William shared an update this week, telling a veteran at a D-Day ceremony that his wife is getting better.

"Yes," William said, when asked if her condition has improved. "She would've loved to be here today."

Kensington Palace, which is the official residence of the Prince and Princess of Wales, also made a rare statement tamping down on speculation of Kate's return and urging the public to give her space.

"We have been really clear that [Kate] needs the space and the privacy to recover right now," the Palace said. "She will return to work when she has had the green light from doctors."

Trooping the Colour

There is a possibility that Catherine will make a balcony appearance on June 15 for the king's birthday parade, known as Trooping the Colour, but she will not appear at the dress rehearsal on June 8.

Grant Harrold, former butler to King Charles III, said it would be "unadvisable" for Catherine to make an appearance while she is still sick.

“While she is hopefully getting better they are doing everything they can to reduce her workload, she’s doing the right thing,” he added.

" A free people [claim] their rights, as derived from the laws of nature."
