Kensington Palace said that Britain’s Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, was in self-isolation on Monday after coming into contact with COVID-19.
Despite getting both vaccinations and testing negative for COVID-19, she will be self-isolating, according to a spokesman.
Middleton had contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19, according to a statement published by officials.
“Her Royal Highness is not experiencing any symptoms, but is following all relevant government guidelines and is self-isolating at home,” the palace said, according to CNN.
The National Health Service said Middleton had face-to-face contact for about 15 minutes with a person who was positive COVID-19. Her engagements have been canceled.
The British government requires people who have had contact with an infected person to isolate themselves for 10 days.
The Duchess’s self-isolation comes after she attended Wimbledon and the Euro 2020 soccer tournament in London.
On Friday, Middleton learned that she would need to sequester herself. It is unknown who she had contact with who tested positive for the illness.
Because of the predominance of the Delta form of the COVID-19, British officials expanded lockdown restrictions earlier this year.
Due to an increase of COVID-19 instances in the union, Hong Kong recently stopped flights from the United Kingdom.
