In March, it became known that the Swedish Crown Princess Victoria and her husband Prince Daniel had contracted the coronavirus. The Crown Princess and her husband were quarantined on March 10 after Victoria developed symptoms of a cold. Test results for coronavirus have tested positive.

Earlier it was reported that Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain would not celebrate Christmas at Sandringham Palace with her daughter Princess Anne because of her husband, who was diagnosed with COVID-19. Anna's husband, 66-year-old retired Vice Admiral Timothy Lawrence, contracted the coronavirus and most likely isolated himself at the Gatcomb Park estate, where he lives with the princess.
