On Sunday Kate will be joining her husband for the ladies singles final at Wimbledon, with five days having passed after Kensington Palace announced that the Duchess would be self-isolating after coming in close contact with someone who had tested positive for the virus.
Kensington Palace has not revealed many details about the whole thing, from how long it was or when it officially ended, only confirming that the self-isolation period will have finished by Saturday.
The next day on Sunday Kate will also be attending the men’s singles final, but this time without her husband Prince William.
The Duchess went into self-isolation on July 2nd, being alerted that afternoon that she had come into contact with someone who later positive, but it is unknown whether the NHS app was the thing that notified her.
She was visiting Wimbledon at the time and had been touring the SW19 tennis club, meeting staff at the venue and getting to watch Britain’s Jamie Murray compete in a doubles match.
Kate is a huge fan of tennis, being both a player herself and a patron of the All England Lawn Tennis Club. The royal has been a regular at Wimbledon matches, especially finals, since her marriage to William in 2011.
It seems that this last week had been nothing but sports events for the royals, as not only did they attend Wimbledon matches, William and Kate even took their eldest son Prince George to Wembley to watch England play Germany in the quarterfinals of Euro 2020.
To attend sporting events such as these, the Duke and Duchess of royal are following a royal testing regime, which means they take two lateral flow tests a week and additional testing before any public engagement. After all, safety should always be the number one priority.
