One of Eugenie and husband, Jack’s friends said, “It’s a traumatic time for Jack and Eugenie. George has been very sick, but the whole family has been rallying round to help.”

Another friend said, “They are hugely grateful for the excellent care that he has been receiving. They are thinking of all the other families who are being similarly affected at this time.”

A family spokesperson declined to comment when approached by the Mail.

It is not known the last time Princess Eugenie and her husband were around Mr and Mrs Brooksbank.

However, she and her husband have been delivering supplies to NHS staff at hospitals in London and Berkshire alongside Sarah, Duchess of York as a way to help those who are sacrificing to keep everyone else healthy. They delivered packages that included cleaning supplies, food and toothpaste.

Of course, Princess Eugenie’s uncle, the Prince of Wales was diagnosed with COVID-19 last month after displaying mild symptoms and was in isolation at his home at Birkhall for seven days alongside the Duchess of Cornwall. He is now out of isolation with Clarence House saying he is “in good health.”
