However, the House of the King has added that the Heir to the Crown will fulfill quarantine that, as a preventive measure, it was recommended by the school where she is studying.
The Princess Eleanor underwent a PCR test after a classmate tested positive for Covid last Friday. Although the daughter of the Kings he was fine, As his mother confirmed to journalists last Monday during an official ceremony, we had to wait to know the result of this test, which was finally announced this Wednesday.
The Heir to the Crown will be isolated for two weeks as a preventive measure recommended by the school. Doña Letizia also went through a similar experience, when she was in contact with the Minister of Equality, Irene Montero, sick with Covid, but on that occasion, on March 6, the risk of contagion was much greater, since neither the Queen nor the Minister wore a mask (the Government recommended not to use them at that time), they sat together during a meeting without maintaining a safe distance and, in addition, they kissed each other goodbye. Even so, Doña Letizia then took the test and it was negative, but as a preventive measure, she isolated herself for 14 days. In the case of the Princess, the theoretical risk was lower, since has been protected in class with the mask, has maintained social distance with his peers and has washed his hands frequently.
