Princess Mary and the Danish Royal Family have been forced into isolation after Prince Christian tested positive for coronavirus

The palace confirmed the 15-year-old – who is second in line to the throne – contracted the virus following an outbreak at his high school.

The family, which includes Princess Isabella, 13, and nine-year-old twins Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine, will stay in isolation in Frederik VIII’s Palace in Copenhagan for two weeks as a precaution.

‘The Crown Prince and Crown Princess were informed yesterday, Sunday 6 December 2020, of a local outbreak of COVID-19 at Tranegårdskolen in Hellerup,’ the palace said.

‘Prince Christian has subsequently tested positive for COVID-19. His Royal Highness is in isolation in Frederik VIII’s Palace at Amalienborg. Other than the Crown Prince family, Prince Christian has not been in contact with other members of the royal family very recently.

‘In connection with the test result, the Royal Danish House has received guidance from the Danish Patient Safety Authority concerning infection detection and testing of the Crown Prince family.’

There has been resurgence of COVID-19 cases across Europe in the past few months as winter approached. 

In August Princess Mary issued a plea urging people to wear face masks and heed official advice from health experts.

The 48-year-old asked Danes to follow updated guidelines from the country’s health ministry which now recommends the use of masks on public transport and when caring for vulnerable people.

The mother-of-four, who was born in Hobart, Tasmania, acknowledged how difficult it can be to adjust to pandemic regulations – revealing social distancing had ‘slipped’ her mind at a recent event when she extended her arm to shake hands with a guest.

Alongside a selfie of herself wearing a surgical mask on a plane, Mary wrote a caption in Danish that roughly translates to: ‘On land, at sea and in the air – we have to get used to wearing face masks.’ 

The Crown Prince couple went into isolation with their four children at Fredensborg Palace in Denmark’s east when the crisis began in March.

The family chose to return to their spring and autumn residence from southwestern Switzerland, where the children had been taking a 12-week course at the Lemania-Verbier International School.

They usually attend the Tranegård School in Gentofte, Denmark, but had been studying at the Swiss boarding school to further their international experience.

Denmark gradually lifted its lockdown from April 14, but Mary and Fred appeared to stay home until mid-May, offering rare glimpses into their personal life by sharing sweet family photos on their official Instagram, Det Danske Kongehus.

A photo posted on May 9 shows them watching a televised performance of ‘The College Songbook’ from their sofa, casually dressed in leggings and sneakers.

The future king and queen contrasted their cosy night-in with a photo from 2004 – the year they were married – which shows them in glamorous evening attire watching a production from the royal box at Copenhagen’s Royal Theatre.

The striking difference between the photos highlighted how life has changed since the outbreak began, with royalty forced to adapt to confinement just like the rest of us.
