Kate Middleton to Miss St Patrick’s Day Parade for First Time in Seven Years Due to Recovery from Surgery

Kate Middleton will miss the St Patrick’s Day parade for the first time in seven years as she continues to recover from abdominal surgery she underwent in January.

Neither she nor Prince William are expected to attend the event at the Mons Barracks in Aldershot, Hampshire, with Kate’s absence marking a significant break from her annual attendance since 2012.

Honorary Tribute

Despite her absence, the Irish Guards plan to honor Kate, who became the honorary Colonel of the Irish Guards last year.

Soldiers will send their best wishes to the mother-of-three and cheer for her at the end of their celebratory parade, showcasing their appreciation for her ongoing support.

Royal Apology and Fallout

The recent controversy surrounding a digitally edited family portrait released by Kensington Palace has likely left the Princess of Wales distressed.

Kate’s admission of editing the image prompted an apology described as honest and heartfelt by Royal Editor Rebecca English.

While the princess has not been seen at public royal events since Christmas Day, she was simply trying to share a nice picture of her children, according to English.

Past Parades and Tributes

Last year’s St Patrick’s Day parade saw Kate Middleton paying tribute to her husband Prince William at the Irish Guards’ event in Hampshire.

She wore a turquoise coat matching the battalion’s blue plume and delivered an emotive speech, expressing her pride in being their Colonel.

Prince William, reflecting on his role as Colonel of the Irish Guards, described it as one of the great honors of his life.
