Though there’s plenty of question marks regarding Kate Middleton at the moment, not least what caused the “abdominal procedure” that will see her out of action until after Easter, there’s been an update sure to be of interest to all those out there who think of themselves as royal fans.

According to reports, the Princess of Wales’ first official engagement since her surgery has been announced, and is due to take place on June 8.

Hello! say that on that date Kate will review Trooping the Colour, one week before the main event takes place.

A statement on the official Household Division website reads: “Trooping the Colour reviewed by Her Royal Highness The Princess of Wales is identical to Trooping the Colour reviewed by His Majesty The King, with the exception that some additional mounted officers ride when His Majesty The King is present.

“Taking part will be over 1400 soldiers of the Household Division and The King’s Troop Royal Horse Artillery, including 400 musicians from the Massed Bands, all of whom will parade on Horse Guards for the second of two formal Reviews.”

Having a fixed date upon which Kate is scheduled to return to royal action could go some way to allaying the concerns of those who have taken the general lack of information offered since the future Queen’s surgery for a bad omen.

Speculation has been rife in recent weeks as to the possibility that Kate’s condition is in fact worse than the Palace have let on. The Palace themselves were forced to issue a statement doubling down on previous claims that all is as it should be regarding Kate’s recovery, reassuring folk that she was “doing well”.

Even so, the general lack of information available to the public has created a vacuum in which so often conjecture can spread like wildfire.

Hardly helping matters is the fact that the Princess of Wales had not been seen in person or in photo since Christmas. That was until yesterday, when a snap of Kate was taken as she sat in a car with her mother, Carol Middleton, outside of Windsor Castle.

The image marked the first time Kate had been seen in public in 70 days. Cue a fresh frenzy of speculation, in spite of the fact that the Royal Family have tried to reassure royal fans over the past week that the Princess is simply recovering on her own terms, away from the flashing of cameras.

Join us in wishing Kate Middleton well in her recovery. We think it’s great news that she’s on the mend and has a date set for her return to royal duties.
