The couple’s two sons are in self-isolation. The other members of the royal family they came in contact with are to be tested, namely King Carl Gustaf, 74, Queen Silvia, and Crown Princess Victoria and her husband.

There is no information on how the princely cup became infected. Both have flu-like symptoms.

Prince Carl Philip of Sweden, Duke of Varmland, is the only son of King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden and Queen Silvia. After the change of the Law of Succession, her sister Victoria became heiress princess. Prince Philip is the fourth in line to the throne.

Sweden is also affected by the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, with an accelerated increase in the number of cases in the cold season. For the first time since the beginning of the pandemic, Sweden imposed restrictions on fighting the virus in November by banning the sale of alcohol in bars and restaurants after 10 pm. Sweden has more than 200,000 cases of infection and 6,400 deaths. Most deaths took place in nursing homes.
