Kensington Palace announced yesterday the Duchess of Cambridge is currently undergoing a 10-day quarantine after being possibly exposed to COVID-19. A brief statement by the Palace read: “Last week The Duchess of Cambridge came into contact with someone who has subsequently tested positive for COVID-19.
Her Royal Highness is not experiencing any symptoms, but is following all relevant Government guidelines and is self-isolating at home”. The Duchess has been fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

Noting this will be the second year in a row the Duchess can’t watch the final in person due to COVID, the source told the Sun: “Kate loves tennis.
