Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, will not join family members for a Platinum Jubilee thanksgiving service at St Paul's Cathedral in London on Friday after testing positive for coronavirus, a source has told CNN.
"After undertaking a routine test The Duke has tested positive for Covid and with regret will no longer be attending tomorrow’s service," the royal source said.
He has seen his mother in the last few days but has been undertaking regular testing and has not seen her since he tested positive, the source added.
Prince Andrew was stripped of royal duties and his HRH title in January in the wake of his civil sexual assault lawsuit in the US. He has since settled that suit out of court, but his lengthy association with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein has severely tarnished his reputation and his involvement in the weekend had posed awkward questions for organizers.
