Kate Middleton has rejoined Prince William in public engagements for the first time since revealing her cancer diagnosis earlier this year.

In a joint post with Prince William, the Princess of Wales, 41, highlighted mental health issues affecting young farmers. The royal couple shared their project on X (formerly Twitter) through the Kensington Royal account, stating: “This #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek we’ve brought together the inspirational Sam Stables from We Are Farming Minds and the brilliant Farmer Will for a very special film.” They noted the importance of discussing mental health within the farming community and highlighted the Duchy of Cornwall’s Mental Health Strategy.

Although Princess Catherine does not appear in the video, her involvement in its production alongside Prince William is evident. The project began before her illness, showcasing her longstanding commitment to mental health advocacy.

The public last heard from the Princess in a moving video where she requested privacy as she began preventative chemotherapy. This announcement in March followed speculation regarding her absence after planned abdominal surgery in January. Initially not thought to be cancerous, a subsequent diagnosis confirmed the presence of the disease.

Kate has spoken about the delicate process of discussing her health with her children, George, Charlotte, and Louis.

King Charles III, 75, who is also battling cancer, has resumed his royal engagements. The monarch has been actively fulfilling his duties, recently completing five engagements within two days. His busy schedule prevented him from meeting Prince Harry during his short visit to the UK.

However, Kate is not expected to participate in public events in the near future. For instance, she will not attend the wedding ceremony at Chester Cathedral for the Duke of Westminster and Olivia Henson, scheduled for June 7th. Prince William will attend the event as an usher, according to Kensington Palace’s report. Among the guests are British billionaire Hugh Grosvenor, a close friend of Princes William and Harry and godfather to Prince Archie. Prince Harry, amidst the royal rift, has opted out of the wedding.
