As a patron and avid tennis fan, Kate regularly attends the annual Wimbledon tennis championships, where she watches the game from the royal box on the center court.

Earlier this month, Deborah Jevans, Chair of the All England Club, addressed speculation about Kate's attendance.

"Our priority is clearly that our Patron has the time to recover, and we're certainly not going to add any additional pressure on her recovery by speculating on her attendance at this year's Championships," Jevans stated during a media briefing, per the New York Post.

The Wimbledon 2024 tournament is scheduled to run for 14 days, beginning on Monday, July 1, and concluding on Sunday, July 14. Regarding who will present the trophies to the finalists on July 13 and 14, Jevans clarified that no decisions have been made yet.

"And when it comes to the presentation ceremony, as in previous years, we will announce those that are going to be a part of that ceremony on the morning of the finals, so nothing has changed in that regard," she added.

In a lengthy message confirming her appearance at the Trooping the Colour ceremony, Kate talked about her health challenges and how she has been coping with the treatment.

She said, "I have been blown away by all the kind messages of support and encouragement over the last couple of months. It really has made the world of difference to William and me and has helped us both through some of the harder times."

Kate continued, "I am making good progress, but as anyone going through chemotherapy will know, there are good days and bad days. On those bad days you feel weak, tired and you have to give in to your body resting. But on the good days, when you feel stronger, you want to make the most of feeling well."

She then noted that it "is a joy" to engage in regular things on the days when she feels "well enough."

Kate said, "My treatment is ongoing and will be for a few more months. On the days I feel well enough, it is a joy to engage with school life, spend personal time on the things that give me energy and positivity, as well as starting to do a little work from home."

According to royal commentator Katie Nicholl, the princess's appearance at the Trooping the Colour ceremony on Saturday negatively impacted her health.

"The princess has this sort of swanlike quality about her — she's sort of gliding on the surface — but beneath the water, I think often she's paddling quite frantically," Nicholl shared with Entertainment Tonight. "I can only imagine that a huge amount of preparation and time and effort and energy will have gone into Saturday's appearance."

The royal expert continued: "She was on her feet for a long period of time. There was a moment where she was watching the parade... and was offered a seat, which she gratefully accepted."

"That's just a bit of an acknowledgment that she is not as strong, not as fit, as she was before she went into this treatment," Nicholl added.
