Prince Andrew has tested positive for Covid and will not attend tomorrow’s Thanksgiving service at St Paul’s Cathedral as part of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
The Duke of York, who stepped down from royal duties following a sex scandal, was expected to attend the service with all the other members of the royal family.
Andrew denied the allegations against him and later reached an out-of-court settlement with his accuser. The settlement is not an admission of guilt.
A spokesman for the palace said today: “Following a routine test, the Duke has tested positive for Covid and it is with regret that he will no longer attend tomorrow’s service.”
Andrew is understood to have seen the Queen in recent days but has been taking regular tests and has not seen her since he tested positive.
The service was to be the only event during the four-day celebration that Andrew was to attend. He wasn’t with the other royals at Trooping the Color earlier today.
At the event today, many of the royals were spotted at Horse Guards Parade to see the military parade where Prince Charles took the salute on behalf of the Queen.
Later, only working family members appeared on the balcony of Buckingham Palace for the traditional RAF flypast.
