Jazmin Grimaldi, the daughter of Prince Albert II of Monaco, has tested positive for coronavirus – four months after her father first announced he has been diagnosed. 

In an emotional Instagram post, the 28-year-old, from California, revealed the news with her 17, 000  followers and said: ‘I have come to terms with some news today. I was called this morning by the hospital that I got tested at for COVID-19… and I did test positive.’

‘This wasn’t a shock to me per se, because for over this past week I have had COVID-19 symptoms. I have been really cautious. I have been social distancing. 

‘I only go out to get the groceries and I always wear a mask and I always sanitise. I hope I can help at least one person today with this personal testament because over this past week I’ve fallen really ill.’

Jazmin, who is a trained opera singer, is the little-known daughter of Prince Albert II of Monaco and American real estate agent Tamara Rotolo.

Alongside the video, Jazmin – whose father became the first royal to announce that he had Covid-19, back in March – penned: ‘My Covid-19 Experience from the Heart. My hope is to help at least one person with this video,’ followed by a hashtag which urged people to stay safe and wear a mask.

In the clip, Jazmin begins by explaining her symptoms – which included a ‘scratchy throat’ and not feeling ‘100 per cent herself.’ 

‘I started to feel a fever coming on and chills. I woke up and I did have a fever,’ she continued. ‘I had a fever pretty consistently for the past three of four days.’

‘I tried to rest as much as possible. I did not lose my sense of taste or smell but my appetite was less than usual.

‘I started developing migraines and it was super debilitating and it just hits you. I tried to sleep as much as I could but it was pretty excruciating and exhausting.’

The royal also added that while you don’t ever think it’s going to happen to you, she was still being cautious.  

‘We don’t know enough and even if we are young and resilient enough to fight it off, I don’t wish it on anyone,’ she continued. ‘And we don’t know how each of our bodies is going to handle it, so I am a survivor and I’m getting through this and I’m so thankful for that.’

‘But I just wanted to share this with you to give you a little bit of a warning and peace of mind, I am here if anyone has any questions.’

She also went on to say that she has had friends die from Covid-19.

‘This virus does not discriminate… I have lost friends to this virus, there’s been a lot of loss this last year and it’s been really hard, she explained. 

‘We’re all human beings. I know a lot of us will get it. It’s scary and I just want everyone, especially in the United States, to take it seriously. It will continue to persist if we don’t take proper action now. It’s not political, it’s about our health.’

Inside the ‘biggest ever’ anti-lockdown rally set to take place in Melbourne

inside the biggest ever anti lockdown rally set to take place in melbourne

A sophisticated anti-lockdown protest set to hit Melbourne will use encrypted messages, scouts, and rogue police officers to preserve the large-scale operation.

Almost 700 demonstrators have vowed to swarm the city on Sunday for a mass rally against the Victorian government’s coronavirus restrictions.  

It comes a day after up to 150 protesters descended on Elwood and Elsternwick Park in Brighton, 11km from the city’s centre, resulting in 21 fines and 16 arrests.  

But organisers claim Sunday will be the ‘big one’, as co-ordination and planning reaches a level that ‘has never been seen at a protest before’.

Protesters have been ordered via encrypted messages to start a series of small rallies within 10 minutes of the CBD kicking off at 7am, according to the Herald Sun. 

The location of the main event will be provided at 1pm, when the groups will merge and stream to the area in unison. 

In an Instagram poster promoting the event, organisers vowed to ‘flow like water’ during the main protest.  

Scouts and rogue cops will reportedly be feeding information about where police are conducting patrols. 

‘We are exceptionally thankful to the small number of Victoria Police officers who came forward and are willing to provide information,’ an ­organiser said. 

A sea of police flocked to the city’s Bayside suburbs on Saturday as scores of conspiracy theorists and coronavirus deniers flooded into a park to rebel against Melbourne’s lockdown. 

Protests were announced by rally organisers about 10.30am on Saturday – half an hour before kicking off at the State Library, and a second closely following at 12pm. 

Up to 100 people gathering at Elsternwick Park in Brighton dispersed to Elwood when faced with a long line of officers at the site, 11km from Melbourne's CBD. Pictured: Protesters and officers at the Saturday demonstrations

Law enforcement teams circling Elsternwick Park included officers from Public Order Response, the Mounted Unit and Highway Patrol.

A helicopter also monitored the situation from above.

Footage shared online showed mount police chasing dozens of protesters as they fled down a footpath. 

‘Get ready to run,’ the man filming can be heard calling out. 

Protesters marching along Elwood beach about 1pm were dispersed a third time, and several arrests have been made by officers.

Shouting about Premier Daniel Andrews and coronavirus restrictions was heard throughout the disjointed protests.

The protests were described as ‘chaotic’, with one photographer saying there was ‘a lot of running and not much protesting.’ 

Some protesters continued to scatter through backstreets, even jumping fences into private property.

One arrested by police was filmed by Nine News telling officers: ‘Wake up, I know you already know this is wrong.’

Melbourne remains in a Stage Four lockdown, meaning residents cannot leave their houses without a valid reason, and restrictions are in place to limit movement more than 5km from a person’s home.

The restrictions remain in place, and both a State of Emergency and State of Disaster, have been extended a further four weeks.

Multiple rallies have taken place in Melbourne over the past few weekends, with Victoria police responding with a heavy presence – handing out dozens of fines and making arrests.

Victoria recorded 14 new cases and five deaths on Sunday, the lowest daily increase since June and the tenth day in a row the state has recorded a daily infections increase below 50.

australian women are exercising in the 219 curve bodysuit from melbourne label contrology active

A growing number of Australian women are exercising in a full-length leotard slashed with a gaping cut out that exposes most of the midriff.

Designed by Melbourne sportswear label Contrology Active, the all-in-one ‘Curve Bodysuit’ is described as ‘the perfect fit for every body’ – resulting in a surprisingly flattering effect on various shapes and sizes.

The asymmetrical one-piece – which costs $219 on the brand’s official website – is available in extra small through large, with double-lining across the bust for added support. 

The streamlined style which clings to the body is said to be more efficient for vigorous exercise like high-intensity interval training, because there’s no loose material to get in the way of your work out.

Made from polyester and elastane, it’s perfect for Pilates, yoga and all manner of gym classes for those daring enough to wear it. 

Initially released in 2018, sales of the bodysuit have surged since March when lockdown sparked unprecedented demand for comfortable activewear.

Photos have drawn delighted responses on Instagram, with fashionistas leaving comments like ‘love this outfit so much, I need it’, ‘yes!’ and ‘this one-piece is life’ accompanied by lines of adoring emojis.

The piece has even drawn celebrity fans, with MasterChef Australia judge Melissa Leong rocking it in an Instagram post back in February.

And it’s not the only all-in-one leotard capturing imaginations on social media.

Dozens of Australian activewear brands are creating full-body workout suits which promise to mould perfectly to women’s natural curves, providing support in all the right places. 

Among the best-selling designs are Solo Staple’s $180 bodysuits, which are available in neutrals like black as well as pastel shades of pink and purple.

Solo Staple founder Alicia Superina came up with the idea when she found the leggings, sports bras and baggy tank tops she usually wore running were interrupting her flow.

‘I was constantly tucking in or readjusting,’ she wrote on her website.

After two years of research Ms Superina launched her brand on Valentine’s Day 2020, with a collection of highly practical bodysuits that have been flying out of stock ever since.

It’s a similar success story for Paris and Samantha, the duo behind activewear brand Paris and I, who released a range of luxury bodysuits with biker short length in June 2019.

The $129.99 moisture-wicking suits are super stretchy with a ‘scrunch’ design around the bottom that accentuates the glutes.

In a recent post on Instagram, the ladies drew attention to a number of ‘copy cat’ brands making cheaper copies of their ensembles, minus the good quality fabric.

Pip Edwards’ Bondi label P.E Nation created the $220 Drive Force Catsuit complete with a v-neck in honour of the trend, and has sold out in size extra large.

‘In a form fitting shape, this performance catsuit features a hidden shelf bra for extra support with adjustable shoulder straps and a criss-cross back,’ the website read.

‘The one-piece features ribbed panelling for further support throughout the legs, with sand colour piping detail and a P.E Nation flat rubber print on the side leg.’  

Running Bare has also jumped on the trend with the $139.99 Lotus Medusa Catsuit which has ‘no uncomfortable hemlines, tops that ride up’ or mismatched separates.
