Why is Kate Middleton not isolating?

Kate Middleton, 39, has been isolating at her home, Kensington Palace, after she was notified last Friday she had come into contact with someone who had picked up the Covid-19 virus.

"Her Royal Highness is not experiencing any symptoms, but is following all relevant government guidelines and is self-isolating at home," a palace spokesperson said.

The duchess took lateral flow tests before her engagements last week at the England Euro 2020 game at Wembley and at Wimbledon, and both were negative, reports say.

She also followed the rules throughout Wimbledon on mask-wearing.

Kate, who is the patron of the All England Law Tennis and Croquet Club, is tested for Covid-19 twice a week with lateral flow tests, in line with the royal household's testing system.

She has also received both jabs of the coronavirus vaccine.

Kensington Palace revealed that both she and William received their first dose at the Science Museum in London in May.

Kate is expected to attend the men’s singles final on July 11.

How long was Kate Middleton isolating for?

Kate was notified on Friday afternoon and began isolating straight away.

Government guidelines stipulate that anyone who has had close contact with an infected person must isolate for 10 days.

The guidelines state: “If you have been informed by NHS Test and Trace that you are a contact of a person who has had a positive test result for Covid-19, you must stay at home and complete 10 full days isolation.

“Your isolation period includes the date of your last contact with them and the next ten full days.”

It is not known when Kate came into contact with the infected person.

There is no suggestion Kate has broken any government guidelines.
