Photos from Princess Catherine’s Final Public Appearance before Her Long Absence from Royal Duties

Princess Catherine’s vibrant blue ensemble marked her final public outing before her planned abdominal surgery. Joined by her family, including King Charles III, at a holiday service, she exuded festive spirit.

Her last appearance was at St. Mary Magdalene Church in Norfolk, England, alongside Prince William and their children: Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis. Photos captured her walking hand-in-hand with her family, greeting onlookers with a bouquet of roses.

She wore a striking Alexander McQueen coat with dark blue knee-high boots, paired with a chic fascinator. Her attire paid homage to Princess Diana with iconic sapphire and diamond earrings.

After her successful surgery, Kensington Palace expressed gratitude for the medical staff’s care. Prince William, speaking on her behalf during an investiture ceremony, praised the dedication of Filipino nurses caring for Catherine.

The princess is now recovering at home, with expectations set for her return to royal duties post-Easter.
