Army takes down website Allegation that Kate will attend Trooping the Colour

An announcement on the Army’s website about the Princess of Wales appearing at Trooping the Colour in June has been retracted.



There was confusion following the statement from Kensington Palace stating that her appearance had not been confirmed.

Tickets were available for purchase on the website for the upcoming military event featuring Catherine, with a note stating that she would be inspecting troops on 8 June.

However, the Army published the page without seeking approval from the palace.

Senior royals typically confirm their attendance at events closer to the event date.

According to reports, the Army released information about the event due to the princess’s position as Colonel of the Irish Guards, the regiment participating in the ceremony this year.

It is up to Kensington Palace to officially announce the princess’s upcoming events, which were put on hold following her abdominal surgery in January.

Kensington Palace has announced that the princess is in good health but will not resume public duties until after Easter.

The website also mentioned that King Charles III would be inspecting the troops during the final parade on 15 June. His presence has not been confirmed by Buckingham Palace, but this part of the Army website will remain unchanged.

The King has paused public appearances following the start of cancer treatment.

Buckingham Palace has not specified when he will resume full public duties, but mentioned that he is still carrying out some official work.

It will be confirmed later if the King will be able to attend Trooping the Colour, the military parade held to mark his official birthday.

Both palaces have stated that they are unable to confirm their attendance at any event, citing the princess’s recovery and the King’s treatment.
