Duchess Kate has been avoiding public appearances for several months. However, she remains consistently involved in the Royal Foundation's matters. While undergoing cancer treatment, she has kept up with the creation of a new report. Her contribution has turned out to be invaluable.

In March, Duchess Kate confirmed the speculations of many and announced publicly that she is battling cancer. This has prolonged her recovery after abdominal surgery. Middleton has not participated in any public appearances this year, and it does not seem like this will change soon.

Duchess Kate coordinated an important project

The Duchess is currently undergoing chemotherapy. However, as a spokesperson for Kensington Palace announced, this does not mean she has given up her royal duties. Kate has even been called the "driving force" of a project encouraging businesses to implement more family-friendly work practices.

However, early childhood is a huge priority for the Princess and so she has been kept fully updated throughout the development of the Taskforce’s work, and she has seen the report, said the spokesperson.

Her task force on business for early childhood presented a new report. The document showed that investing in early childhood support could generate over 55 billion dollars annually for the national economy.

When will Duchess Kate return to work?

Palace officials emphasize that Kate's actions on behalf of the Royal Foundation are not a political campaign. However, the project has garnered significant interest among those in power, and the report's findings have already been presented to ministers in departments such as health and education.

Kensington Palace notes that coordinating the report does not signify Kate's official return to work. However, it is known that the Duchess will continue her efforts in this area once she fully returns to her duties.

The spokesman concluded that Kate would return to work once she regained her strength and was cleared by doctors.
