Prince Christian of Denmark, the eldest son of Prince Frederik and Princess Mary of Denmark, has tested positive for COVID-19.
The Danish Royal Family confirmed the news on Monday local time after being notified of an outbreak at his school.
“The Crown Prince and Crown Princess were informed yesterday, Sunday 6 December 2020, of a local outbreak of COVID-19 at Tranegårdskolen in Hellerup,” it said in a statement.
“Prince Christian has subsequently tested positive for COVID-19.”
It’s understood the 15-year-old, who is second in line for the throne, is currently self-isolating in Frederik VIII’s Palace at Amalienborg.
He has not been in contact with other members of the royal family, except his parents and siblings – Princess Isabella of Denmark, Prince Vincent of Denmark and Princess Josephine of Denmark.
His immediate family will be tested and remain in isolation until they are cleared.
It is unclear if Christian or any other family members are showing symptoms.
