Kate Middleton is forced into self-isolation at Kensington Palace after being alerted on Friday that she had come into contact with someone infected with coronavirus
Kensington Palace has not revealed where the contact was, only saying it was ‘last week’, suggesting it could have been when she visited Wimbledon on Friday.
The Duchess was joined by Wimbledon chief executive Sally Bolton and former British tennis player Tim Henman, and was pictured laughing and smiling as she prepped strawberry desserts at the All England Club.
Kate, who has had both her covid vaccinations, also went to Wembley with William and George to watch England beat Germany on Tuesday.
It is not known if the Duchess of Cambridge been alerted after being ‘pinged’ via the NHS app, a phone call from test and trace or if she was contacted personally by the person who tested positive.
‘Her Royal Highness is not experiencing any symptoms, but is following all relevant government guidelines and is self-isolating at home’, a spokesman said.
It means that William will have to lead and celebrate the 73rd anniversary of the NHS today, alone. The couple were due to attend a service of thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral this morning before hosting an afternoon tea at Buckingham Palace.
But the Duke of Cambridge will now be flying solo.
