The Princess of Wales has revealed her first major update on a new project since her cancer diagnosis.

Kate, 42, shared that she was undergoing cancer treatment in an emotional public address on March 22.

The royal has taken time away from public duty since January after undergoing planned abdominal surgery in London - something unrelated to her later diagnosis.

In her address, Kate detailed that she was - although her condition was first thought to be non-cancerous - diagnosed following pre-operative tests after her surgery.

A trailer for a short film has now been released on the Prince and Princess of Wales' official socal media platforms as part of Mental Health Week.

The video highlights the mental health challenges faced by Britain's farmers - and marks her first project update since her diagnosis.

Sharing alongside the video, Kate wrote on her official account: "This #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek we’ve brought together the inspirational Sam Stables from We Are Farming Minds and the brilliant Farmer Will for a very special film.

"Spending a day together on Sam’s farm in Hereford they chatted about mental health in the farming community, finding support and the Duchy of Cornwall’s Mental Health Strategy."

Although Kate doesn't feature in the video, which is now available on YouTube, it was produced under the guidance of herself and Prince William.

According to GB News, the project was in development before Kate's health deteriorated.

Taking to the comments on the video, one fan praised both Kate and William for bringing awareness to mental health.

They commented: "Can't even begin to say how much I love the awareness HRH The Prince and Princess of Wales brings to the issues surrounding mental health."

Another wrote: "It's wonderful that you are focussing on mental health of the people living in rural areas too! Well done [clapping-hands emoji]."

William's comments come after Kate stepped back from royal duties, with her last public appearance occurring on Christmas Day.

No timescale has been given as to when we can expect to see Princess Kate make a return to duty.
