Kate Middleton ‘considering’ making balcony appearance at Trooping the Colour

The Princess of Wales is “considering” a surprise appearance on the balcony of Buckingham Palace at Trooping the Colour, an insider has claimed, but she will not be returning to public duties for the Colonel’s Review.

As colonel in chief of the Irish Guards, a role Kate was given in 2023, she would be expected to take the salute on June 8 – a week before the Trooping the Colour.

The news she is not taking part comes as the princess continues her cancer treatment away from the public eye, as she has done since her diagnosis in January.

She has not been seen in public since Christmas Day, but she could appear next month “if she is feeling well enough” an insider told the Daily Mail.

The King, who was also diagnosed with cancer in January, has however confirmed his attendance at Trooping of the Colour on June 15.

The event traditionally culminates in the royal family gathering on the balcony of Buckingham Palace after a display of pomp and military pageantry.

While the King has been confirmed to take part in the ceremony, he will inspect the soldiers from a carriage as opposed to on horseback, which he did last year.

Meanwhile, a Welsh bed and breakfast has shared a never-seen-before picture of the Prince and Princess of Wales taken on a getaway last year to their social media.

Harry and Meghan appoint Meghan’s mum in important new role

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have again chosen to reject royal tradition and appoint Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland as their children’s nanny.

The insider claimed that this will allow the children to grow up in a more traditional, close-knit family environment.

“Harry and Meghan have used a number of nannies in the past, but now that Doria has moved in with the family, she has stepped up to help look after the children,” the source said.

“There is sometimes additional help, but Doria is working closely with Meghan to ensure that the children are brought up in a close-knit and loving family environment.”

Kate Middleton ‘considering’ appearance at Trooping the Colour

The revelation comes after it was announced that she will not be participating in the Colonel’s Review before the King’s official birthday parade.

An insider told the Daily Mail that she will only appear “if she is well enough” as she continues her cancer treatment.

The event will take place on 15 June, with the King carrying out the ceremonial inspection of the soldiers from a carriage instead of horseback because of his own cancer diagnosis.

Army leader vows to ‘step up’ their game at Trooping the Colour

Lt Col Shaw, who will lead the King’s official birthday parade, praised the Monarch for his dedication to his work as he continues his cancer treatment.

“It’s just wonderful. I think the King’s service at the moment is an inspiration to us all, he’s our Colonel in Chief so the birthday parade needs to be even better than normal,” Shaw said.

Kate Middleton not returning to annual event next month

As colonel in chief of the Irish Guards, a role Kate was given in 2023, she would be expected to take the salute on June 8.

The news she is not taking part comes as the princess continues her cancer treatment away from the public eye, as she has done since her diagnosis in January.

It has been reported that the princess has been “out and about” with family in recent days as she continues her course of preventative chemotherapy, sparking some speculation has turned to when Kate will return to official engagements.

Though some conflicting reports suggest Kate could return as early as autumn and as late as into the new year, the Palace and royal insiders have been keen to stress that no official comeback date has been planned.

Camilla remembers ‘fantastic’ secret night at theatre on drama school visit

Camilla made the revelations on a visit to the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (Rada) in central London today alongside King Charles.

While there, she spoke to student Daniel Mays about his role in the musical Guys and Dolls and said she had seen it with her family at London’s Bridge Theatre.

“It was fantastic,” she said.

The actor was pleased by the compliment and admitted that he remembered the Queen’s visit.

“I left about three months ago and towards the end of my run she came with all her grandkids,” he said. “We were only told on the day there would be an important royal visit, so we were wondering who it was going to be.

“It’s an immersive production and we were wondering if she was going to be in her seat or standing up.

“It’s the longest thing and most exhausting thing I’ve ever been part of – but a great time.”

Biden administration requests for Harry’s visa application to remain private

This comes after the application recently came under scrutiny following revelations about the Duke of Sussex’s prior drug use in his 2023 memoir Spare.

Lawyers for the Biden administration have said that there would be a “stigma attached” if the information entered the public domain.

The think tank group The Heritage Foundation requested that the documents be made public under a freedom of information application.

King ‘encouraged’ by lasting privacy of meeting with Harry

The King has reportedly been “encouraged” by his February meeting with Prince Harry remaining private as the familial rift remains.

The duke cleared his schedule in February to fly across the Atlantic to see his father following his shock cancer diagnosis.

While the meeting lasted less than an hour, royal insider Robert Hardman believes it could have benefited their somewhat tumultuous relationship.

“But I think there can be a kind of normalising, and I thought it was telling that when the cancer diagnosis came through back in February, Prince Harry came straight over,” the author said.

“People said why didn’t he stay longer, why didn’t he talk to his father, I mean there is so much to be worked through, but this was absolutely not the moment to have some sort of summit with Harry about all of Harry’s grievances.

“But I think the fact he came was important, the fact he was received was important, I think what encouraged people at the palace and encouraged the king was the fact that afterwards, we didn’t then read about it or hear about it. It remained private.”

Meghan Markle’s new lifestyle brand could rake in seven figures in its first year

The estimate was made by PR expert Mayah Riaz ahead of the brand’s official launch, with its official website and Instagram page still displaying none of its products.

Meghan has, however, sent out 50 limited edition jars of its jam to soft launch the brand, and Riaz believes they could retail for a staggering amount of money.

“So far, the jams have been sent to only 50 people. This suggests that it will be an exclusive and limited edition item,” Riaz told the Mirror.

“It has already been reported a single jam jar could cost three figures. I believe that is entirely likely from what we have seen so far. This is not rare for a celebrity brand.”

“Therefore, my estimation is that American Riveria Orchard in under a year could make Meghan seven figures. It is entirely possible for the brand to make multi-seven figures by the end of next year.”

Charles officially dissolves parliament

The King has officially dissolved parliament ahead of July’s general election.

Under UK protocol, the prime minister must request permission from the monarch to hold a general election, and then a date will be set for the dissolution of parliament.

The general election will then be held 25 working days after Parliament is dissolved.

The day after a general election the King will invite the leader of the party that won the most seats in the House of Commons to become Prime Minister and to form a new government.

While Charles has never overseen a general election as King, he has formally met with two prime ministers during his reign including Liz Truss and the current prime minister Rishi Sunak.
