She was due to join Prince William in marking the 73rd anniversary of the NHS today but will have to miss out.

The royal was also meant to be hosting a tea party at Buckingham Palace to pay tribute to NHS staff who have worked tirelessly during the pandemic.

Prince William is not isolating and will still attend both events.

A Palace spokesperson said: “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.”

COVID ALERT

Kate has received both her Covid jabs and got the alert on Friday.

She will have to isolate for ten days but it is not clear when the quarantine period started.

She also attended the England v Germany game at Wembley with William and Prince George on Tuesday.

It is not known if she would have been in the stands for the Three Lions’ historic semi-final on Wednesday against Denmark.

The keen tennis fan and patron of the All England Lawn Tennis Club is now also likely to miss the Men’s and Women’s final at the weekend.

Kate was due to join William at two major events marking the NHS’ birthday today.
