A bomb dropped by the British newspaper The Sun when it reported that Prince William had covid-19 and that he kept it a secret.
It was revealed that the Duke of Cambridge hid his diagnosis because he did not want to alarm the nation.
The 38-year-old heir to the throne contracted the virus in April, days after his father, Prince Charles, and Prime Minister Boris Johnson, were infected.
