The 75-year-old, who is married to Queen Elizabeth's first cousin Prince Michael, has been unwell for nearly a month, according to British newspaper The Sun on Sunday.

The princess, who is known as an author and historian, has two children with Prince Michael: Lord Frederick, who lives in Los Angeles, and Lady Gabriella Windsor, who celebrated her royal wedding to Thomas Kingston in Windsor past year.

"The prince and princess have mild flu symptoms, but are doing well under the circumstances".

"The infection detection is now initiated under the supervision of the Royal Family's life doctor".

"The King and Queen and The Crown Princess and Prince Daniel, who are part of the infection tracking, will be tested on Thursday".

"After the Prince and Crown Princess' illness on Wednesday 25 November, the royal couple and the Crown Princess couple have now been tested again and confirmed to remain healthy".

Her coronavirus diagnosis follows that of Prince Charles, who announced in late March that he had tested positive for the disease after traveling to Birkhall, his Scottish home on the Balmoral estate. Dozens of people in the orbit of the President have also contracted the virus.

Many world leaders have contracted the coronavirus since the beginning of the pandemic.

Though three months after contracting the virus, Charles revealed he had still not fully recovered.

Princess Michael became the subject of public scrutiny in 2017 after she was accused of wearing a racist brooch to meet Meghan Markle at Buckingham Palace.

She was said to be over the worst by her spokesman.

Never miss a thing.
