British Prince William was among high-class people who tested positive for the coronavirus in April but battled to keep it a secrete even when it was very difficult for him to breath, which eventually caused royal aides to panic.
William, 38, had to fight very hard to keep the news of his illness under the carpet because Prince Charles and the UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson had already tested positive. William thought it would double the panic on the nation that was already slapped with the news on the ground at the time, The Sun hinted
“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,” a source told the outlet.
The source said. “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. He was determined to fulfil his engagements.”
Prince William was quickly treated by palace doctors and properly quarantined at his family’s home, Anmer Hall, in Norfolk — all while carrying out work phone calls and video chats, according to the outlet.
After feeling well, Prince William confirmed to a close source at an event that he kept his illness quiet because “there were important things going on, and I didn’t want to worry anyone”.
Another source said, “as a result of his own experiences, he realizes absolutely anyone can catch this awful disease and knows how imperative it is that we all take this second lockdown seriously”.
A royal aide is yet to respond to our questions for confirmation.
