The royal family had been made aware of Prince William’s health amid his COVID-19 diagnosis.
Just recently, The Sun broke the news that the Duke of Cambridge tested positive for coronavirus during the onset of the global pandemic.
Prince William “hit pretty hard” by coronavirus
According to the unidentified palace source, the 38-year-old royal battled the deadly virus in April but chose not to disclose the matter to avoid panic from the public.
Although the severity of his health was uncertain, England’s future king was “hit pretty hard by the virus” and experienced difficulty in breathing.
“At one stage, he was struggling to breathe, so obviously everyone around him was pretty panicked,” the royal insider furthered.
Moreover, despite his diagnosis, Prince William continued with his royal duty and underwent virtual meetings and engagements.
“After seeing medics and testing positive – which was obviously quite a shock given how fit and healthy he is – William was determined it should be business as usual though. He was determined to fulfill his engagements.”
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge played a major role and became the forefront of the royal family in dealing with the health crisis.
Queen Elizabeth II concern over Prince William COVID-19 condition
At the height of the Duke of Cambridge’s self-isolation at their home in Anmer Hall, Queen Elizabeth II is, reportedly, “worried” over her grandson’s and Prince Charle’s health.
“The priority was keeping HMQ shielded and safe, which was thankfully what happened. But of course, the Queen was worried for Charles and William and relieved that they suffered only minor symptoms,” a source revealed to Vanity Fair.
Understandably, the Queen shows concern over the royals’ status since both are heir to the throne.
Aside from this, her eldest son is also considered high-risk from the deadly virus due to his age and past medical condition.
To recall, the Prince of Wales is the first royal to have been struck by COVID-19 in late March.
Although he suffered mild symptoms, the 71-year-old heir to the throne has been isolated at his official Scottish residence in Birkhall alongside Duchess Camilla, who tested negative for coronavirus.
Kate Middleton and the young Cambridges tested negative for COVID-19
As for Kate Middleton and their three kids, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louise, The Daily Mail’s royal correspondent, Rebecca English, tweeted, saying that they did not contract the virus.
However, representatives from Kensington Palace have declined to give further updates about the issue.
