Sophie, Countess of Wessex is in self isolation after coming into contact with someone who later tested positive for Covid-19.
Sophie will be isolating at her Bagshot Park home, a Surrey mansion where she lives with husband Edward and their children Lady Louise and James, Viscount Severn.
The Prince of Wales contracted Covid-19 in March and suffered from mild symptoms - losing his sense of smell and taste for a period.
A Buckingham Palace spokeswoman said: "Earlier this week the Countess of Wessex came into contact with someone who has subsequently tested positive for Covid-19.
"Her Royal Highness is not experiencing any symptoms, but is following all relevant Government guidelines and is self-isolating at home."
