UK government says Kate to appear in June for a ceremony. But the announcement has caused confusion

Associated Press

LONDON (AP) — Britain’s government appears to have made an embarrassing mistake after it advertised that Kate, the Princess of Wales, will attend a Trooping the Color ceremony in June, apparently before consulting palace officials. The announcement on the U.K. Ministry of Defense’s website drew attention because the June appearance would be the first major official duty confirmed for Kate, 42, since she underwent abdominal surgery. But army officials seemed to have jumped the gun because Prince William and Kate’s office, Kensington Palace, hasn’t confirmed any scheduled public events for Kate. The announcement caused confusion amid intense media attention on the state of Kate’s health.
