In the middle of the second wave of the coronavirus and as the United Kingdom is about to be confined again, The Sun has revealed that Prince William has already contracted the virus. At the same time as his father, in April 2020, he too would have been ill. Only, unlike Prince Charles, this information would have been kept in silence. According to British media, the grandson of Queen Elizabeth and second heir in the line of succession, did not want to worry the country. “Important things were happening and I didn’t want to worry everyone,” Prince William reportedly told a relative at a private event. Like the other people who tested positive for Covid-19, Kate Middleton’s husband had isolated himself at the family home at Anmer Hall in Norfolk. He was reportedly treated by the palace doctors.
If nobody noticed anything, it is because during the whole month of April, Prince Harry’s brother continued to make no less than fourteen phone and video calls. And yet, the virus would have hit him hard. “William was hit very hard by the virus – he really knocked him out for six days. At one point he was having trouble breathing, so obviously everyone around him was pretty freaked out,” he said. a source close to the royal family.

For now, Kensington Palace and Prince William’s office have declined to officially comment on this information. As a reminder, Prince Charles, who had also tested positive for the coronavirus at the end of last March, had suffered from moderate symptoms and had placed himself in self-containment at his residence in Scotland for seven days.
