As proof that she’s committed to her duties, the venerable Kate, Duchess of Cambridge is stepping out. According to a Starpulse celebrity news report, Kate Middleton is scheduled to make her first public appearance over the weekend since giving birth to her new baby, Princess Charlotte.
It’s been just over a month’s span since Catherine of Cambridge and Prince William welcomed their new child into the world. While many new moms take off and give their bodies time to recover from the rigors of labor and childbirth, Kate is moving full speed ahead and not missing a step with appearing at events to represent Buckingham Palace.
Saturday, Kate is on tap to appear at a birthday celebration for Queen Elizabeth II, who turned 89 back on April 29. The delayed “Trooping the Colour” ceremony is in keeping with British tradition that mandates Her Majesty’s gala be held during the summertime.
Sources say Charlotte and big brother Prince George are not on any official invitations, and there is no word if Kate’s children will make appearances during the procession. Nonetheless, other notables will be on-hand; William, Prince Charles, Prince Harry, Duchess of Cornwall (Camilla), Prince Andrew, Princess Eugenie, and Princess Beatrice are all scheduled to ride along the route.

That aside, Duchess Kate has been giving her son much love and attention. The pair was seen out and about at a park in London recently. Middleton was seen playing chase with George and they appeared to be having one heck of a time. Kate also surprised him with a treat of his own.

Charlotte and her brother recently posed for their first portrait together. And from the look of one of the pictures, the future King of England really adores his kid sister.

After Kate makes her first official appearance since giving birth to Charlotte, she and William will be christening their daughter. July 5 marks the occasion, which will be held at St. Mary Magdalene Church at the Queen’s Sandringham estate in Norfolk.
