The source also informed Sun that, ‘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. 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 though. He was determined to fulfil his engagements.”
He along with his wife and the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton who on the bright side did not contract the Coronavirus, address the NHS workers who are risking their lives on the frontline and thanked their brave commitment to their jobs.
