Royal Family Of Nepal - Shah dynasty

If you have answers, please help by responding to the unanswered posts.
Did their daughter travel with them to India that she also got Covid-19; or did she pick it up from her parents on their return? And what about the crown prince?

The family seems prone to diseases at an early age (with the crown prince apparently having suffered 3 heart attacks and his sister a stroke - their grandfather died of a heart attach aged 51; and their grandmother at the age of 24 (due to complications at child birth of her 6th(!) child)); so that would most likely put them in a high-risk category; just like their parents based on their age.

On March 2, 9 Nepalese political parties signed a joint manifesto condemning the resurgence of monarchist activities in Nepal. In a long editorial, The Telegraph newspaper claims that a restoration plan for King Gyanendra Shah is being finalized.

According to the newspaper, India, China and Russia would be maneuvering to put an end to the anarchic political situation which reigns in Nepal.

Still according to this newspaper, "India, China and the Russian Federation have invited King Gyanendra to Bangkok to finalize the deal". It is impossible to confirm this information at this stage which could only be the subject of speculation.

King Gyanendra Bir Bikram Shah Dev was ruler of Nepal between 1950 and 1951, 2001 and 2008 before being overthrown in a revolution. He is very present in the politics of his country and has launched a campaign in favor of the restoration of the monarchy.
Kinda suspicious that China and Russia are there making deals. Hopefully Guanendra realises read that small text on paper very carefully.
