The Princess of Wales says the treatment is making "good progress" - she announced her attendance at a public event

The Princess of Wales says her battle with cancer is "progressing well" and she will attend King Charles III's ceremonial birthday parade tomorrow.

It will be Kate's first public appearance since her diagnosis.

The 42-year-old wife of Prince William has not appeared in public at all this year. She announced in March that she was undergoing chemotherapy for an unspecified form of cancer.

"I'm making good progress, but as anyone who goes through chemotherapy knows, there are good days and bad days," Kate said, adding that she had "a few more months" of treatment ahead of her.

"I'm looking forward to attending the King's Birthday Parade this weekend with my family and hope to join in a few public engagements over the summer," Kate said.

Her announcement is a significant milestone, but does not mark a return to full-time public duties.

The palace released a new photo of Kate, taken in Windsor earlier this week, in which she was photographed standing by a tree, casually dressed in jeans and a blazer.

The palace said the king was "thrilled" that Kate would attend Trooping the Color, also known as the King's Birthday Parade.

It is an annual military parade that marks the monarch's official birthday in June.

King Charles III, who is also being treated for an undisclosed form of cancer, is due to oversee the ceremony, in which soldiers parade alongside the king with their ceremonial flag.
