Kate Middleton has shared an update on her cancer treatment. It was a rare post from the Princess of Wales, who prefers not to share frequent updates.

“I am making good progress, but as anyone going through chemotherapy will know, there are good days and bad days,” Kate said in a statement on June 14.

“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,” she added.

She mentions in the statement that she hopes to “join a few public engagements over the summer”. However, she says she is aware that she is “not out of the woods yet”.

The 42-year-old princess shared her photograph while sharing the message. Social media users noticed that Kate's choice to pose under a willow tree might have been intentional as the tree symbolises strength and resilience. It also represents rebirth and renewal since a willow branch can grow into a new tree when planted.

“You're as strong as the tree in this picture. And the tree is your family,” wrote one user on Instagram.
