“It has been a great relief that she is tolerating the medication and is actually doing a lot better,” a family friend tells Vanity Fair of the royal, who is undergoing a course of preventative chemotherapy.

Following reports that Kate Middleton has been seen out and about with her family in recent days, speculation has turned to when the princess will return to official engagements.

Reports claiming that Princess Kate is unlikely to be back at work until next year are inaccurate, sources tell Vanity Fair, and while the Daily Mail has reported that Kate could be back as soon as this autumn, no official return date has been planned.

VF has been told that Kate is in no hurry to return to work, with her focus being entirely on her recovery. According to one well-placed source, “There is no timeline, and there is certainly no hurry. It will be when Catherine feels ready and when she gets the greenlight from her medical team. But she will 100% be coming back to work, of that there is no question.”

While she has suspended all work-related duties, Kate has been kept abreast of the landmark report published last week by ​​the Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood and its related business task force, with an aide previously revealing that she’d read the report and been briefed on it. However, a Kensington Palace spokesman stressed that the news should not be viewed as an example of her returning to work.

A senior royal aide told the Daily Mail: “The Princess of Wales was the driving force behind the business task force. She has been kept up to date since the inception of the task force, and she has read the report and been briefed on it.

“This is a clear commitment she has made—that throughout her life of public service…this will be [the] focus. That will continue when she returns to work.
