Kate Middleton Self-Isolates After Contact With Person Who Tested Positive For COVD-19


Kate Middleton is self-isolating at home after coming into contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.

The Duchess Of Cambridge came into contact with the unidentified person in the last week, Kensington Palace confirmed in a statement released Monday, per the Press Association news agency.

“Her Royal Highness is not experiencing any symptoms, but is following all relevant government guidelines and is self-isolating at home,” the palace added.

Contacts of coronavirus-positive people must currently “self-isolate for 10 full days following your contact with that person,” per United Kingdom law.

Kate attended the Wimbledon tennis championships on Friday and England’s national soccer team’s European Championship match against Germany at London’s Wembley Stadium with her husband, Prince William, and their son, Prince George, on Jun. 29. William is not required to self-isolate.

Kate will now miss this weekend’s Wimbledon finals and a celebration marking the 73rd anniversary of Britain’s National Health Service on Monday.

She received her first dose of the coronavirus vaccine in May, saying she was “hugely grateful to everyone who is playing a part in the rollout.”

William contracted COVID-19 last year but kept the news secret to avoid worrying anyone, he said. William’s father, Prince Charles, was also infected around the same time.

The news comes amid a rapid uptick in daily cases in the United Kingdom of the highly transmissible Delta variant of the virus, first discovered in India.

Later Monday, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is expected to announce the lifting of lockdown rules ― and the nixing of mandatory mask-wearing ― in England in just two weeks’ time.
