Prince William had COVID-19 in April — and “struggled to breathe’’ at one point.
The British royal fought to keep the news of his illness out of the press because dad Prince Charles and the country’s prime minister, Boris Johnson, had both just come down with the deadly contagion and William was concerned how his illness would worry the nation even more.
But 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 fulfill his engagements.”
The prince, who is next in line to succeed his father to the throne, was treated by palace doctors and properly quarantined at his family’s home in Norfolk — all while carrying out work phone calls and video chats.
The married dad of three later told a 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."
Now, “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."
