Prince Albert of Monaco's daughter Jazmin Grimaldi has revealed she is 'grateful to be alive' after testing positive to the coronavirus.
Last week, Albert's 28-year-old daughter from his short relationship with American, Tamara Jean Rotolo, took to Instagram to explain she had tested positive for the virus after a harrowing week of illness.
In her latest updated on Instagram Jazmin told her followers she was “so thankful that I am starting to finally feel like myself” on Tuesday, three weeks after she first experienced COVID-19 symptoms.
“I am grateful to be alive and healthy at this present moment. We take so much for granted including our health, our bodies our precious miraculous temples,” she captioned a photo of herself smiling.
The granddaughter of Grace Kelly said she is still experiencing lingering symptoms but has regained her strength, before urging people to remain vigilant.
“I want to be a reminder to each of you that this virus can affect you, a family member or someone you love,” she added.
“Please don’t be careless even if you personally seem to not have symptoms or think you have immunity. Think of the others beyond yourself that our helpless.”
Jazmin previously said she was compelled to share her ‘excruciating’ experience with coronavirus symptoms in a bid to remind others that the virus is still very much a threat to healthy, young people.
She is only 28-years-old and healthy, but described the virus as ‘debilitating’.
“COVID-19 is still very much out there,” she warned her followers last week.
“I started to feel a fever coming on and chills and aches in my body really bad.”
She explained the fever continued unbroken for at least four days, interlaced with sudden, and severe migraines that left her bedridden.
“I started developing migraines and headaches lingering throughout the days,” she said.
“[The symptoms] just ‘boom’, hit you. It was excruciating and exhausting.”
Royals hit by coronavirus across the globe
She’s not the first royal to feel the effects of the global pandemic.
In the UK, Princess Beatrice’s wedding to fiance Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi had to be cancelled, a blow both to the happy couple and to royal watchers excited to witness the big day. And that was of course after Prince Charles also tested positive for COVID-19.
In Belgium, Prince Joachim also tested positive to the virus, though in his case he contracted it after attending a party in Spain, which Spanish media said broke lockdown rules because of the number of people there.
In Greece, Princess Theodora of Greece and Denmark was set to marry American lawyer Matthew Kumar later this month on the island of Spetses, however, the wedding was put on hold as a result of the pandemic.
