First official event confirmed for Kate Middleton in June

Britain’s Princess of Wales is to carry out her first major engagement since undergoing abdominal surgery in January, when she reviews Trooping the Colour, in June.

The British army posted the engagement on its official website, saying Kate Middleton, as Colonel of the Irish Guards, will help review soldiers as part of event on 8 June.

The website names King Charles as attending the main Trooping ceremony – also known as the Birthday Parade, on 15 June.

The army said: “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 1,400 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.

“Trooping the Colour reviewed by Her Royal Highness The Princess of Wales also includes 250 soldiers from the Foot Guards who will line the processional route along The Mall.

“The soldiers will be inspected by Her Royal Highness The Princess of Wales, Colonel Irish Guards.”

King Charles is receiving treatment for cancer, but it is understood planning for major royal events continues with organisers remaining flexible in the event of possible changes.

Kate has been spotted being driven close to her home in Windsor following huge speculation on social media about the state of her health.

This morning, Charles held an in-person pre-budget audience with Chancellor Jeremy Hunt at Buckingham Palace.

The pre-budget audience is traditionally a private one

Before a budget is presented, the Chancellor of the Exchequer meets with the monarch, usually the day before the UK government’s plans for the economy are delivered in a statement to the House of Commons.

The audience is traditionally a private one, but, this time, the king was photographed shaking hands with Mr Hunt in the Private Audience Room of the royal residence.

They were also shown sitting in chairs either side of a small antique table.
