The Duchess was advised to self-isolate on Friday at 4pm after coming into contact with a person who tested positive for coronavirus, it is suggested. The Mirror says she left Wimbledon before fellow Brit Dan Evans took to the court.

Sitting nearby was the Duke of Kent and the Body Coach Joe Wicks.

The Duchess has received both doses of her coronavirus vaccine and last week tested negative for Covid-19 twice.

Kensington Palace released a brief statement outlining the circumstances.

It confirmed the Duchess was not presenting any symptoms of the disease at the time.

The statement read: “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.”

Kensington Palace has not revealed where Kate is self-isolating.

Per Government guidance, the Duchess must self-isolate for 10 days.

This means she is likely to miss the Wimbledon final on Sunday.

The 39-year-old is understood to be taking regular lateral flow tests to ensure she is Covid-free.

She does so as part of the Royal Household testing regime and before attending royal engagements.

The Duchess has received both doses of her coronavirus vaccine.

She was photographed receiving her first dose in late May, just days after Prince William had his.

Kate had earlier been pictured preparing strawberry desserts at the All England Club before making her way to the Royal Box.

After receiving her first Covid vaccine on May 28, the Duchess tweeted: “Yesterday I received my first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine at London’s Science Museum. I’m hugely grateful to everyone who is playing a part in the rollout – thank you for everything you are doing.”
