“The princess is not expected to return to work until it’s cleared by her medical team,” a Kensington Palace spokesman said.

“Early childhood will continue to be central to her public work,” he said.

The princess was briefed on the report but was not present at the launch in the City of London.

A royal source said the princess has been “kept up to date on the report”.

The director of the foundation, Christian Guy, said Kate was “excited” that the report was continuing while she recovered.

The Princess of Wales revealed her diagnosis in a video on March 22, saying it came as a shock.

“In January, I underwent major abdominal surgery in London, and at the time, it was thought that my condition was non-cancerous. The surgery was successful,” she said in the video.

“However, tests after the operation found cancer had been present. My medical team, therefore, advised that I should undergo a course of preventative chemotherapy, and I am now in the early stages of that treatment.”

The Princess said she and William would be spending some time to process it privately for the sake of their young family.
