As a result, Kate will no longer be able to attend a thanksgiving service at St Paul’s Cathedral or a tea party at Buckingham Palace with the Duke of Cambridge to mark the NHS’ 73rd anniversary on Monday. A spokesperson said: “Last week the Duchess of Cambridge came into contact with someone who has subsequently tested positive for COVID-19.
“Her Royal Highness is not experiencing any symptoms, but is following all relevant government guidelines and is self-isolating at home.” Duchess Kate is fully vaccinated. And is feeling well with no symptoms.

The rules don’t require Prince William to self-isolate. Family members & social bubbles are only required to self-isolate if Kate was experiencing symptoms herself, or tested positive, after being in contact with the person who later tested positive for Covid.
The Royal UK understands that Kate has received both her vaccines and was alerted on Friday afternoon and began isolating.
