The Duke of York will be unable to attend the thanksgiving service at St Paul’s Cathedral on Friday to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
A palace spokesman said: “After undertaking a routine test the Duke has tested positive for COVID and with regret will no longer be attending tomorrow’s service.”
It is understood that Andrew has met with the Queen in the last few days but has been undertaking regular testing and has not seen her since he tested positive.
He was pictured on Wednesday in high spirits riding a horse on the Royal Estate in Windsor.
Andrew did not appear on the balcony at Buckingham Palace to mark his mother’s Platinum Jubilee today after the Queen decided that only working members of the Royal Family would join her.
