The plans of Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank collapse at the last minute. This Saturday, July 17, the couple was supposed to baptize their son August, born last February. About thirty guests, including Queen Elizabeth II, were to attend the ceremony at the Royal Chapel of All Saints’ Day in Windsor, but also a small reception at the Royal Lodge just after. Unfortunately, the Covid-19 has once again turned everything upside down. Before the festivities, one of the guests tested positive for the virus. What alert the daughter of Prince Andrew and her husband who therefore preferred to cancel everything, for fear that their little party turns into a cluster and that their loved ones find themselves contaminated, as reported by the Daily Mail. Caution is required, while the United Kingdom is facing, like many countries, an epidemic resurgence linked to the Delta variant, which is particularly contagious.
The sister of Princess Beatrice will therefore have to show a little more patience and wait for the health situation to allow the gatherings to be held without risk, before being able to replace a date for the baptism of her son.
Cases of Covid in the British Royal Family?
The coronavirus does not spare the royal family. Although the majority of them are vaccinated, this does not prevent them from having to follow isolation measures, if unfortunately they have been in contact with a positive person. This is what happened to Kate Middleton a few days ago. The Duchess of Cambridge was warned that she was in contact with a person she crossed paths with at Wimbledon on July 2. After being confined to her home for almost a week. She passed a battery of tests that all came out negative, which allowed her to finally get on with her life.
