Kensington Palace has not yet revealed whether Kate Middleton, Princess of Wales, will attend Trooping the Color as she continues to undergo cancer treatment.

However, she will not be inspecting the troops at the Colonel’s Show on June 8, a rehearsal for the actual Trooping the Color. General James Bucknall will inspect the troops in Kate’s place.
