Despite Kate slowly returning to her normal duties, people closest to the matriarch claimed there's no formal plan for her to be a fully working royal again.

"I think to pick through the wording of her letter looking for clues to her intentions is a mistake," an insider claimed after Kate published an apology letter to the regiment after missing the Trooping the Colour rehearsal on Saturday, June 8.

"The thing about William and Kate is that they honestly do a lot of this stuff themselves. It’s not like the old days of Queen Elizabeth II where the men in gray wrote something and the queen just signed it without any input." they claimed. "This was very clearly demonstrated with the photoshopped Mother’s Day image. For good or ill, they write the letters and take the pictures and tell their staff, ‘Send it out.'"

In the regretful note, the University of St. Andrews alum wrote, "Being your Colonel remains a great honor, and I am very sorry that I’m unable take the salute at this year’s Colonel’s Review. Please pass my apologies to the whole Regiment, however, I do hope that I am able to represent you all once again very soon."
