"I have been blown away by all the kind messages of support and encouragement over the last couple of months. It really has made the world of difference to William and me and has helped us both through some of the harder times," Kate wrote on Instagram.

"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."

"My treatment is ongoing and will be for a few more months. On the days I feel well enough, it is a joy to engage with school life, spend personal time on the things that give me energy and positivity, as well as starting to do a little work from home," the Princess continued.

"I’m looking forward to attending The King’s Birthday Parade this weekend with my family and hope to join a few public engagements over the summer, but equally knowing I am not out of the woods yet," she said.

"I am learning how to be patient, especially with uncertainty. Taking each day as it comes, listening to my body, and allowing myself to take this much needed time to heal. Thank you so much for your continued understanding, and to all of you who have so bravely shared your stories with me."

Vanity Fair reports that Kate will ride down the Mall in a state carriage with Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis and watch the parade from the Major General’s office during Saturday's ceremony.

She is also expected to appear on the balcony with her children for the flypast, and King Charles is said to be delighted that his daughter-in-law is well enough to attend his birthday parade.

Charles only recently resumed public-facing duties himself, officially returning to work on April 30 following the announcement of his own cancer diagnosis in February.

Per his doctor's advice, Charles will inspect the soldiers from carriage rather than on horseback during Trooping the Colour.

Kensington Palace has said that Kate's appearance at the event does not mean that she is ready to return full-time yet. She is not expected to attend Royal Ascot or Monday’s Order of the Garter ceremony.
