A source told The Sun it has been a "worrying time for those around her".

"The princess has been unwell and has sought medical attention," the insider told the publication

"It has been difficult for those close to her to see her suffering. She’s really been through it."

Princess Michael, who is married to the Queen’s paternal cousin Prince Michael of Kent, 78, was diagnosed with Covid in November last year and was forced to self-isolate at her home in Kensington Palace.
