Kensington Palace has confirmed that the Duchess of Cambridge has begun self-isolation due to contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.
Kate will then be unable to attend a thanksgiving service at St.Paul’s Cathedral or a tea party with the Duke of Cambridge at Buckingham Palace to mark the 73rd anniversary of the NHS on Monday.
To our understanding, Kate is feeling well and not experiencing any symptoms.
A spokesperson said: “Last week the Duchess of Cambridge came into contact with someone who has subsequently tested positive for COVID-19.
“Her Royal Highness is not experiencing any symptoms, but is following all relevant government guidelines and is self-isolating at home.”
Kate has received both of her vaccine shots but has begun self-isolating anyway when she was notified she had been in contact with someone suffering from COVID-19.
The Duchess’ last public outing was to Wimbledon on Friday, where she watched matches on one of the outer courts.
The Duchess followed the rules throughout Wimbledon about when to wear a mask. She also took lateral flow tests before her engagements at the Euro 2020 match and Wimbledon and both were negative.
Kate was spotted in attendance at Wimbledon on Friday, but the Duchess wasn’t just there to watch tennis, she spent the morning helping prepare food in the kitchens, highlighting the great work the organizers of the tournament, the All England Lawn Tennis Club, do to create and distribute 200 meals a day to those in need during the pandemic.
Kate is also a patron of the All England Lawn Tennis Club and usually watches from the Royal Box, she also viewed some games from Court 14 last time the tournament was held, 2 years ago. Last year we, unfortunately, didn’t get to experience the tournament as it was canceled due to the global pandemic.
