>Prince William caught Covid
The Duke of Cambridge was struck down with coronavirus in April but kept the diagnosis secret to not "worry" anyone, it has emerged.
The Duke, 38, is said to have struggled to breathe during his illness and was treated by doctors before isolating at the family home, Anmer Hall, in Norfolk.
The Duke's diagnosis came shortly after it was announced that both his father, the Prince of Wales, and Prime Minister Boris Johnson had contracted the virus.
He was reportedly concerned that revealing his own plight to the nation would create further panic.
There was no public hint that the Duke had fallen ill during the height of the pandemic, as he continued to work throughout April, carrying out 14 telephone and video call engagements throughout the month.
