(TIML NEWS) Editors at the publication noted that while William, the Duke of Cambridge, has yet to comment on the report, he told observers at one engagement after conquering the virus: “There were important things going on and I didn’t want to worry anyone.”
However, a source told The Sun that the father-of-three was “hit pretty hard by the virus”, and it “really knocked him for six”.
After apparently being treated by Kensington Palace doctors, William followed government guidelines to isolate at his family’s home Anmer Hall, in Norfolk.
But despite the virus, the duke still managed to carry out 14 telephone and video call engagements in April.
When contacted about the report, Kensington Palace declined to comment, but did not deny the claim.
