Where in the world is the Princess of Wales?

The British Army’s website quietly removed Kate Middleton‘s name from the list of attendees for the Colonel’s Review Tuesday after it was speculated that the event would be one of her first appearances since her abdominal surgery.

On Tuesday, her office at Kensington Palace said they hadn’t been consulted about her appearance, per People.

Prior to the removal of her name, it was reported that the Princess of Wales, 42, would have been examining the Foot soldiers as the honorary Colonel of the Irish Guards at the pre-Trooping the Colour event.

Following the inspection, the members will line the processional route along the Mall in London.

Trooping the Colour is a batch of ceremonial events that mark and celebrate the birthday of King Charles III — even though the monarch’s actual birthday is in November.

The Post reached out to Kensington Palace for comment.

Since undergoing a “successful” abdominal surgery on Jan. 17, Middleton has remained largely out of the limelight, opting to recover from her home at Adelaide Cottage in Windsor.

In her absence, several conspiracy theories have taken root.

“Kensington Palace made it clear in January the timelines of the princess’ recovery and we’d only be providing significant updates. That guidance stands,” her office told The Post last week, adding that she was “doing well.”

The mother of three was spotted on Monday for the first time since her surgery sitting in the passenger seat of a car with her mother, Carole Middleton, near Windsor Castle.

In the extremely grainy photos, the future queen can be seen attempting to blend in with dark sunglasses and a dark jacket.

Shortly after announcing Middleton’s surgery, palace officials stated that she’d be “unlikely to return to public duties until after Easter.”

“The Princess of Wales appreciates the interest this statement will generate. She hopes that the public will understand her desire to maintain as much normality for her children as possible; and her wish that her personal medical information remains private,” the initial statement said at the time. “Kensington Palace will, therefore, only provide updates on Her Royal Highness’ progress when there is significant new information to share.”

The mysterious disappearance surrounding the princess comes as King Charles III continues to undergo treatment for an unspecified form of cancer, which was discovered when he underwent a procedure for an enlarged prostate.

Amid the royal family’s ups and downs, Prince William’s spokesperson told People on Wednesday that “his focus is on his work and not on social media.”
