Vice-Admiral Sir Timothy Laurence, husband to the Princess Royal, has tested positive for Covid-19 just days before Christmas.

According to the MailOnline, the 66-year-old retired naval officer is recovering at the couple’s Gatcombe Park residence.

The news means Princess Anne and Sir Tim Laurence will not join The Queen at Windsor Castle over the festive period.

Because he has tested positive for the illness, Sir Tim is required to isolate for ten days.

If Sir Tim is found to have the Delta variant, Princess Anne isn’t required to isolate if she is both fully vaccinated and takes daily tests.

However, if her husband has the Omicron variant, she and all those in her household must isolate for ten days.

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has urged people to act with caution over the holidays.

The Royal Family is always keen to lead by example meaning a visit to see her mother over Christmas will not take place.
