Kate, Princess (42), has recently shown signs of activity. The wife of Prince William (41), currently receiving treatment for cancer and currently on leave from her public roles, posted on Instagram over the weekend.

Kate and William both make a comment

Alongside William, they issued a brief statement regarding a small military plane crash near an RAF base in Lincolnshire. The pilot tragically lost their life in the incident.

"We learned with much sadness the news from RAF Coningsby this afternoon," noted the Prince and Princess of Wales on X. "Our thoughts are with the pilot's family, the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, and the wider RAF community," continued their statement. The brief update was signed "W & C" - for both William and Catherine.

This incident is likely to be concerning for William

Given his association with the RAF, the incident is particularly distressing for the future king. He is a patron of the Royal Air Force Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and holds the honorary commander role at RAF Coningsby, where the crash occurred. William has a military background, including four months in the Air Force. He then trained extensively as a search and rescue pilot. He operated as a pilot actively for several years.

Princess Kate made her cancer diagnosis public in March. Since then, she has been managing her illness and taking an indefinite leave from her royal duties and obligations. Her most recent public appearance was at a Christmas church service alongside her family. In January, Kate underwent a surgical procedure related to her condition, resulting in a cancer diagnosis. Her father-in-law King Charles III (75) has also been battling cancer but has since returned to fulfilling his engagements.
