KENSINGTON Palace has raised the alarm that the Duchess of Cambridge has to engage in self-isolation after coming into contact with someone who later tested positive for coronavirus.

  Palace 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 now, but is following all relevant government guidelines and is self-isolating at home.”

  Kate’s last public event was a visit to Wimbledon on Friday, when she toured the venue, meeting staff in the museum and the Centre Court kitchen, sitting with the former tennis star, Tim Henman to watch Jamie Murray play in the doubles.

  The duchess, patron of the All England Lawn Tennis Club and a keen tennis fan, is now likely to miss the men’s and women’s final at the weekend.

  William contracted COVID last spring and was able to carry on with telephone and online engagements while he was treated by royal doctors, but was reportedly hit “pretty hard” by the virus and at one stage struggled to breathe.

  Prince of Wales caught the virus during the same period but had milder symptoms, although he lost his sense of smell and taste for a period.
