British Royal Family News finds that there were fears for the health of Princess Anne and Zara Tindall this week, after it emerged that one of their closest friends had tested positive for the coronavirus. Eagle-eyed fans of the royal family quickly picked up on the circumstances as soon as the revelation was made that Andrew Parker-Bowles had tested positive.
The ex-husband of Camilla revealed earlier this week that he had tested positive for having the deadly virus. Andrew had little doubt where he had picked up the virus, as he concluded that he likely caught the virus during the Cheltenham Festival.

British Royal Family News: Cheltenham Organisers Forced To Defend Decision
There have been a number of reported cases of the coronavirus from people that visited the Cheltenham Festival. Over 250,000 people attended the event this year, but organisers were forced to defend their decision to continue with the event. Organisers claimed that they were following the guidelines set out by the government, with the lockdown on sporting events not put into place until the Monday after the festival.
On the final day of the festival, it was announced that all football in the UK was cancelled indefinitely. The biggest jumps event of the season was also cancelled recently, as the scheduled Grand National, which was supposed to take place today, was called off. Instead, there will now be a virtual event, with all proceeds going towards the NHS.
