Unlike Prince Charles who made an announcement of his positive test in march, the grandson of Queen Elizabeth kept his health report secret. It was not clear how serious his diagnosis was.

As reported by The Sun, Prince William, the 38-year-old prince who is second-in-line to the throne of Britain, Prince William, kept this big information under the wraps as he didn’t want to alarm the nation.  He was quoted as saying,

“There were important things going on and I didn’t want to worry anyone.”

For those unversed, he followed the government guidelines and was treated by the palace doctors. Prince William isolated himself at Anmer Hall in Norfolk and the journal added that he still did 14 video call and telephone engagements in April.

An insider revealed,

“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.”

The palace was not available immediately for comment late on Sunday.

In the meantime, the residence of Prince Charles had unveiled on March 25 that he contracted the virus. The hair to the British throne had self-quarantined at his Scotland residence for a week with mild symptoms.

April was also the month that the news of British PM Boris Johnson contracting the coronavirus shook the whole world. He had been transferred to the hospital in an intensive care unit when the positive test result was out.

Boris Johnson revealed later that his infection was serious to the point that in order to stay alive, he needed "liters and liters of oxygen". He also said that doctors were preparing to announce his demise.
