Kate, Duchess of Cambridge has proved to be a keen football fan this season, with the Duchess spotted in the crowds last Tuesday to watch England beat Germany 2-0 with Prince William and Prince George. But William cut a lonely figure at the Euro 2020 semi-final on Wednesday for the England vs Denmark game, as Kate was at home self-isolating.

Will Kate still be self-isolating for the Euro 2020 final?

Kate, Duchess of Cambridge is not expected to be self-isolating by the time the Euro 2020 final comes around on Sunday, however, she is not expected to attend the match.

Prince William, who is president of the Football Association, is expected to be the only senior royal in attendance at the final clash on Sunday.

According to Kensington Palace, Kate’s self-isolation period will have finished by Saturday and she has a busy diary this weekend with other sporting fixtures.

On Saturday, Kate is expected to make an appearance at the ladies’ singles final of Wimbledon with Prince William.

The Duke and Duchess will be in the stands to watch the match between Ashleigh Barty and Karolina Pliskova.

Kate will then attend the men’s singles final without William on Sunday.

Kensington Palace did not confirm when the Duchess’ self-isolation period officially ended.

Why did Kate have to self-isolate?

The Duchess started self-isolating on July 2 at her London home of Kensington Palace.

Kate began self-isolating after she was alerted she had come into contact with someone who later tested positive for coronavirus.

However, it is not clear whether the NHS app made her aware she had been in contact.

Under the current Government guidelines, Prince William was not required to self-isolate with Kate at Kensington Palace.

This is because William himself was not in contact with the person who tested positive for coronavirus.

So William would only have had to self-isolate if Kate had begun to experience Covid symptoms or had tested positive for the virus.

The couple’s three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, would also not have been required to self-isolate.

Announcing the Duchess’ self-isolation, a spokesperson said: “Last week the Duchess of Cambridge 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.”

The NHS guidance states someone must self-isolate for 10 days if they are contacted by NHS Test and Trace, or if they get an alert from the NHS COVID-19 app.

The self-isolation period includes the day someone was last in contact with the person who tested positive for COVID-19 and the next 10 full days.
