Prince William reportedly kept early Covid diagnosis a secret!
The Duke of Cambridge was infected not long after his father Prince Charles, who had fallen ill with Covid-19 at the end of March, writes the Sun.
The BBC reported the same timeline, citing unnamed palace sources. The Kensington Palace declined to confirm or deny the story.
The Sun speculated that Prince William did not want to unsettle the public with further bad news during the turbulent spring period and decided to keep his diagnosis under wraps.
Prince Charles (71), the eldest son of Queen Elizabeth II (94), had shown mild Covid-19 symptoms in the spring and was reportedly said that he "got away with it quite lightly".
