Prince Andrew has tested positive for Covid-19.
Buckingham Palace confirmed the news in a statement this afternoon.
Andrew will no longer be attending celebrations throughout the Jubilee weekend.
He has pulled out of tomorrow's National Service of Thanksgiving at St. Paul's Cathedral.
A 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."
Prince Andrew was with Queen Elizabeth this week, but she has not tested positive for the virus.
Luckily, the 96-year-old is well and is testing negative for Covid-19.
Earlier this year, the monarch tested positive for Covid-19. Queen Elizabeth was diagnosed with the virus in February.
