The Queen’s granddaughter, Zara Tindall, is following official government and health department advice after she and her husband, Mike, returned from a skiing holiday in Italy.

Mr & Mrs Tindall were holidaying in the northern town of Bormio in the Coronavirus-hit Lombardy region last week.

A spokesperson for the couple said that as neither of them are showing any symptoms of Covid-19, they would not be self isolating.

Italy is the worst affected country to be hit by the Coronavirus in Europe, with 11 people dying from the disease.

Many other European countries have also now been impacted by the outbreak, including Spain, France, the UK, Germany and most recently Norway.

It is feared that the spread of the disease may turn into a pandemic.

The school attended by Prince George and Princess Charlotte is one of 40 in the UK which has been impacted by the rapid spread of the Coronavirus.

No pupils or staff have been diagnosed with the highly infectious disease, however four pupils have been isolated and are undergoing testing to see if they have the Covid-19 illness.

It is understood that four pupils are in self-isolation after being sent home from Thomas’s Battersea in southwest London where a number of royal children are enrolled as students.

Two of the children are reported to have recently returned from Italy with flu-like symptoms.
