King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia of Sweden have tested negative for coronavirus. The couple were checked after their only son, Prince Carl Philip, and his wife, Princess Sofia, were diagnosed with Covid-19.
The four had been together just days before Carl Philip and Sofia began to feel unwell and tested positive for coronavirus. They had all attended the funeral of Queen Silvia’s brother, Walter Sommerlath, along with Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel.
Victoria and Daniel were also tested as a matter of urgency following Carl Philip and Sofia’s diagnosis. Their results, too, were negative.
The Swedish Royal Household confirmed the King, Queen, Crown Princess and Prince had tested negative on November 26th, soon after the confirmation that Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia were unwell. They are said to be experiencing mild, flu like symptoms and are now in isolation, with their two young sons, at home.
