Amid the lockdown, the Prince has kept himself busy with things he has not done in a long time, including reading some books and magazine articles. Prince Albert was diagnosed with COVID-19 back in March.

At the time, the monarch revealed that he felt okay except for a slight fever, cough, and runny nose. Considering his previous health history of fighting pneumonia, the Prince explained that he knew he was susceptible to have complications.
