Football fans saw Duke of Cambridge, 39, in the crowd at Wembley to watch England’s victory over Denmark in the semi-final of Euro 2020. However, they shared their confusion online as Kate Middleton, 39, has been told to self-isolate at home. 

Duchess of Cambridge came into contact with someone who later tested positive for coronavirus.

But Kensington Palace today confirmed Prince William does not need to self-isolate because Kate does not have any symptoms, so he can continue to be out and about.

So, Cornwall Live reports he went to Wembley for the huge clash on Wednesday – days after he cheered on The Three Lions at the stadium in the Germany game.

Kensington Palace said in a statement: “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.”

The couple had planned to attend a Service of Thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral in honour of the nation’s health service earlier this week, and in the afternoon host a Big Tea at Buckingham Palace for NHS staff, in their roles as joint patrons of NHS Charities Together.

Kate’s last public event was a visit to Wimbledon on Friday 2 July, when she toured the SW19 sporting venue, meeting staff in the museum, Centre Court kitchen and sitting with former tennis star Tim Henman to watch Jamie Murray play in the doubles.

The duchess is patron of the All England Lawn Tennis Club and a keen tennis fan but is now likely to miss the men’s and women’s finals at the weekend.

William contracted Covid last spring and was able to carry on with telephone and online engagements while he was treated by royal doctors but was reportedly hit “pretty hard” by the virus and at one stage struggled to breathe.

The Prince of Wales also caught the virus during the same period but had milder symptoms although he did lose his sense of smell and taste for a period.

Kate began self-isolating on Friday 2 July after being alerted that afternoon that she had come into contact with someone who later tested positive, but it is not known if the NHS app made her aware.
