Another article, that I can't post, indicated that he was treated for breathing problems, so it sounds like he had a worse case than Charles. Glad he recovered.

Well - isn't that around the time Boris had it too? So they were supposed to send everyone into a panic by saying the PM, the next King and the third in line to the throne had it too? I can see why they kept it to themselves. In any case all three seemed to get through it.

Here's the original article.....


Wow. William is young and strong, and he was hit much harder than it seems his father was......that should prove to anyone that COVID does not discriminate.

Like father, like son - they just won't quit. Amazing.


Quote:
A source said: "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.

"He was determined to fulfil his engagements."

Right, and also........it's not as if William is the monarch now or the Prime Minister. Not that people don't care, but there isn't a "need to know" as there would be in those circumstances.

The BBC's story on William's COVID illness.


https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-54774942


Quote:
The Duke of Cambridge contracted Covid-19 earlier this year, palace sources have told the BBC.


It is believed he tested positive in April at a similar time to his father, the Prince of Wales.


According to the Sun newspaper, which first reported the story, Prince William, 38, kept his diagnosis private to avoid alarming the nation.


Kensington Palace, the office and home of Prince William, refused to comment officially.

Panic? I don't think most people would be panicked about it. Concerned? Sure. The same way people were about Charles, Boris, and the many others who have had it. There really was no reason for them to hide it and honestly not sure why it is leaked now. The whole thing is weird.

Glad he is okay though I recall the images of him with the kids delivering pasta. I think it was for Charlotte's birthday. Was this during that time?

They delivered the pasta in May. William was ill in early April.

My word, what kind of magic they have?
Yes, the Cambridges really run a tight ship with a very loyal staff. Some other branches of the BRF are much more 'leaky', whether it's on purpose or they just chose their friends/staff poorly.

The Queen and Charles must really be proud of William. That even when ill he puts priority on work and the stability of the nation. It must be a relief for them that they are leaving their legacy in competent hands.

Some say it's a diversion/distraction after BoJo press-con fiasco last time. Other say this came up during his conversation when he's filming The Pride of Britain Awards (maybe during the conversation with Kate Garraway, since you know, her husband is in hospital with Covid).

If it's in April, his last public engagement was visiting NHS-111 on 21 March, later appearance was opening Nightingale Hospital on 16 April (via video link), the there's BBC's Every Mind Matter on 17 April (video link with Catherine, might be pre-recorded). Delivering pasta could be somewhere around last week of April, and then there's VEDay on 9 May (video link with Catherine in which he looked fine and healthy).

So maybe, say, he's ill after NHS-111 visit in early April around (1st or 2nd week, 7-14 days incubation period) and considering he sat next to his wife for BBC appearance, most likely he's recovered by that time (and in a good health during the pasta delivery).

He was not wearing masks all the time. It is not known if it is permanent immunity so he should be cautious and wear masks during lockdown.

Yes I agree and likely that they're pleased that he's there to support them.

Oh my lord. I am so glad William, Kate and their kids are okay. He is the heir, we should have known! It does not shock me he had it.

Oh, I have no doubt they are....and Philip as well. For all the worry he’s had about other things and family members, he doesn’t have to about William (he doesn’t have to worry about his son, either, lol).

Whether you think William should have hidden the information or not, his motivation was concern for his citizens, and that’s wonderful thing.

This post was from 3 April when he called the staff at Queen’s Hospital Burton and University Hospital Monklands. A call, only his voice, not video link. And now listening closely, his voice (breathing?) indeed sounds a little unsteady. Was it the phone? Connection? But if he's indeed have breathing difficulty as reported, it makes sense.

And btw, Richard Palmer is not happy.

I’m on holiday but it seems Kensington Palace is confirming that the Duke of Cambridge had Covid-19 in April and kept it secret. The UK expects honesty from public figures, particularly during a pandemic. This may be a cover-up that will haunt William and those advising him.
Oh my, the Cambridge really run a tight ship.
Not a good news for those royal reporters, isn't it?

Someone is lying. The TL doesn’t add up at all.

If word had gotten out that not only the PM but the next two generations of the Succession had contacted Covid, I can only imagine the level of alarm/consternation in the UK.

For William to make the decision to keep the information quiet was not only wise, it was thoughtful as well imo.

That tight ship has bothered them for a long time. I remember when the royal reporters were so huffy about not knowing Lupo's name that they compared it the the abdication crisis.

No it wasn’t. It was the exact opposite. Irresponsible and selfish.

Agreed. To keep the information quiet while the PM and the heir to the throne were also ill, was the right decision IMO.
