Kensington Palace have said that Kate Middleton is not experiencing any symptoms, but it is not yet known if she's been tested.

A spokesperson for the palace 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."

Kate was due to join Prince William at an event marking the 73rd anniversary of the National Health Service in London this morning.

The couple were all set to host several hundred frontline staff members, as well as patients and public figures at an event in St Paul's Cathedral in London.

Afterwards, they had plans to host another event for NHS workers at Buckingham Palace this afternoon.

William will still attend the events, but Kate will stay home.

Middleton was last seen in public at Wimbledon on Friday. She visited the premises and met the staff of the museum. She was later joined by Tim Henman to watch Jamie Murray play.

Kate received her first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine at the end of May, and shared her experience on Twitter.

"Yesterday I received my first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine at London’s Science Museum," she wrote.

"I’m hugely grateful to everyone who is playing a part in the rollout - thank you for everything you are doing."

Last April, Prince William tested positive for Covid-19 during the first wave of the virus in the UK. William said that he "struggled to breathe" at one point, but performed his royal duties virtually.
