The Duchess of Cambridge does have both of her vaccine shots and is experiencing no symptoms, but has placed herself in isolation after being exposed to Covid-19.
Kate has been performing her royal obligations and has attended various events, but for the record does test herself before with the lateral flow tests, the palace has said.
“Her Royal Highness is not experiencing any symptoms, but is following all relevant government guidelines and is self-isolating at home,” the palace said in a statement.
The Duchess is abiding by all guidelines set by the UK government.
The UK does have restrictions for Covid-19 in place, such as gatherings limited in size and masks required in public places indoors. The restrictions, as of now, are due to life July 19th.
With the self isolation, Kate had to cancel her planned attendance at events honoring the 73rd anniversary of Britain’s National Health Service.
A celebration for all first responders has to be a hard thing to not be at, especially as they are amazing heroes and have saved so many lives. It was also announced today that, Queen Elizabeth has awarded the The George Cross to the NHS. The medal was instituted in 1940 by King George VI for “acts of the greatest heroism or of the most courage in circumstances of extreme danger”.
And you have to admit that all first responders fit that qualification.
