Before Grimaldi’s hospitalization, her father, Prince Albert, became the first head of state infected with COVID-19 in March. 

When the 62-year-old royal developed flu-like symptoms, he immediately isolated himself for two weeks in their palace apartments. He took his meetings online. 

On March 31, his doctor gave Prince Albert a clean bill of health. He planned to stay in Roc Agel with wife Princess Charlene and 5-year-old twins, Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella.

Meanwhile, a woman from Florida, who claimed she had sex with Prince Andrew, Duke of York at 17, also tested positive for the virus.

Virginia Giuffre, who claimed that she was trafficked to London while working for the prince’s friends, Jeffrey Epstein, said she was scared of her condition.

Even though there are photos circulating of the prince with Giuffre, Prince Andrew denied all her claims, saying he had no recollection of meeting her.

Early this year, Prince Andrew and former wife Sarah Ferguson were spotted together with their family. The two appeared to have no ill-will against each other.

Ferguson took to Instagram to celebrate International Family Day. In the photo, the former couple is seen sharing a light moment with their two grown-up daughters.
