The Sun reported Sunday that Prince William, 38—who is second in line to the British throne contracted the virus after his father Prince Charles and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson both fell ill with coronavirus. Johnson became so sick he was placed in the intensive care unit of a London hospital.
A source told The Sun, “William was hit pretty hard by the virus—it really knocked him for six.
At one stage he was struggling to breathe, so obviously everyone around him was pretty panicked.
After seeing medics and testing positive—which was obviously quite a shock given how fit and healthy he is—
William was determined it should be business as usual though. He was determined to fulfill his engagements.”
Prince William, second in line to the throne, did not tell anyone about his positive test result because
“there were important things going on and I didn’t want to worry anyone”, according to the Sun.
The news about William’s coronavirus battle broke the day after Johnson announced Britain was entering a second national lockdown,
after it was revealed the U.K. had passed more than one million coronavirus cases.
