This is the best summary I could come up with:

Catherine, Princess of Wales, appeared in public on Saturday for the first time since her cancer diagnosis, smiling while riding in a carriage with her three children as she took part in a ceremonial parade to celebrate the birthday of her father-in-law, King Charles III.

Crowds gathered in central London to watch as the princess and her family participated in an event full of military tradition, music and pageantry, dampened only slightly by a light rain that turned into a downpour as the ceremonies concluded.

Her appearance was welcomed as a sign of improvement in her medical condition and a significant moment for the British royal family, which suffered another blow this year when King Charles announced that he, too, had cancer.

Evidence of her recovery will be especially welcome to Britain’s royal family, given that her health issues coincided with those of King Charles, who was treated for cancer in January.

He has started his return to public life, and last week he attended ceremonies in France to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the D-Day landings that presaged the end of World War II.

After arriving at Horse Guards Parade, the king inspected the troops, who wore the ceremonial uniform of red tunics and bearskin hats.
