Prince William caught Covid-19 but kept it secret from nation

Prince William caught coronavirus but kept it secret, so he didn’t alarm the country.

The Prince followed the Government guidelines and self-isolated at home.

He was treated by palace doctors.

It’s reported Prince William was “hit pretty hard” by the virus.

His diagnosis came as Prime Minister Boris Johnson was badly affected by Covid-19 in April.

And his father, the Prince of Wales, had also been told he had the virus.

A source told The Sun:

“William was hit pretty hard by the virus – it really knocked him for six.

“At one stage he was struggling to breathe, so obviously everyone around him was pretty panicked.

“After seeing medics and testing positive – which was obviously quite a shock given how fit and healthy he is – William was determined it should be business as usual though.”
