A statement on the British army's website said the annual review of the soldiers was to be commanded by The Princess of Wales at Horse Guards Parade in London on June 8. Someone removed her name.

This annual event troops 1,400 soldiers and precedes the Trooping the Color parade the following weekend. It would have been the first public appearance for the princess, 42, since her abdominal surgery on January 16. The event was announced by the army without honorable notice to Kensington Palace, the office representing the Prince and Princess of Wales. Only Kensington Palace can confirm the princess' engagements and first public appearance.

King Charles III to head the final parade with the royal review of the troops on June 15
While his attendance hasn't been confirmed to us by Buckingham Palace, this section of the army website hasn't been changed.

The 75-year-old king suspended public engagements while he underwent cancer treatment. His return hadn't been confirmed, with Buckingham Palace saying it would be in touch closer to the event. That excused both Kensington Palace and Buckingham Palace, which have emergencies of their own to deal with. Neither could confirm attending the Galapagos this summer.

Trooping the Color is a military parade celebrating the monarch's birthday.

A palace spokesman said she was resting after her operation. The spokesman for Princess Kate had to say that she is doing well, resting at her house in Windsor, and recovering. The palace succeeded well enough by keeping everything wrapped up and not giving out information about her health.

Despite these reassurances, rumors abound that she was in a coma, reports that Kensington Palace also refuted.

King Charles III has taken the throne in his final days under Queen Elizabeth II, and the British media has critically followed the monarchy's health with hawk eyes. Officials say Kate, whose surgery was not an emergency, is recovering well and away from the spotlight. Officials say she is staying out of the public eye and may not be seen before Easter.
