British Royal Family News says that Prince William kept his coronavirus diagnoses as a secret, simply because he didn’t want to appear as “another victim.” The Duke of Cambridge fell ill with the virus during the same time that his father Prince Charles had contracted the virus and the Prime Minister of the UK, Boris Johnson. Here’s what you need to know.
According to royal author and expert Robert Lacey, he told Fox News that Prince William kept his Covid-19 news to himself, simply because he didn’t want to set off any alarms with the public, and also because he didn’t want to look like he was a victim of the virus, too. As many royal fans can recall, Boris Johnson was hospitalized for several days while battling the coronavirus.
British Royal Family News: Prince William Doesn’t Want To Be Seen As A Victim
“[William] decided the world didn’t need him to be the third high-profiled coronavirus victim,” Lacey explained. “He followed all the rules. He did the quarantine, the self-isolating. He did Zoom, even while he was ill, and then got back to work.”
According to reports, Prince William “struggled to breathe” while he was battling the virus back in April and during the early days of the global pandemic. During his battle with the virus, Prince Charles’ son was treated by palace doctors and was isolated away from his wife, Kate Middleton, and their three children while at their home in Amner Hall.
Of course, it didn’t take long at all for both fans and critics alike to respond to the news. One person on social media said, “He lied. Hiding the fact he had an infectious disease is a lie. He put everyone he met for his in-person ribbon cuttings at risk. Guaranteed no one would have wanted to meet him if they knew he had COVID. We still don’t know how long immunity lasts. William also openly mocked coronavirus patients and the media coverage in early March in Dublin. Maybe if he was more forthcoming about the illness and an actual leader, people would have taken COVID more seriously.”
