Prince William Battled Coronavirus in April
British media are reporting that Prince William tested positive for the coronavirus in April. The Duke of Cambridge reportedly had a hard time, with one news outlet even saying that he struggled to breathe.
He is not the first member of the royal family to be diagnosed with the virus. In March, his father Prince Charles that he had tested positive for COVID-19. He went to recover from the virus.
But unlike his father who made public his diagnosis, the Prince, who is next in line to the throne after his father, decided to keep his own diagnosis a secret. Apparently, he did not want the nation to be more concerned, especially as Prime Minister Boris Johnson has also tested positive for the virus and even had to be hospitalized due the seriousness of his condition.
Now that he has recovered from the deadly disease, the prince understands just how important it is to follow the lockdown rules. The country just announced another month-long lockdown as cases have begun to rise again, with over a million already infected.
With the new lockdown that will be implemented, businesses that are considered nonessential such as bars and restaurants will not be allowed to operate with dine-in options. But schools will still be allowed to have face to face instruction.
