AS the Platinum Jubilee continues across the weekend, one royal face will be notably absent from the festivities.
Prince Andrew has caught Covid so cannot attend the Jubilee[/caption]
Where is Prince Andrew today?
It has since been announced that Andrew has tested positive for Covid, forcing him to pull out from Platinum Jubilee events.
A palace spokesman said: “After undertaking a routine test the Duke has tested positive for Covid and with regret will no longer be attending tomorrow’s service.”

However, it is understood that even if Andrew did not have Covid, he still would not be permitted to attend the service.
Senior royals were apparently outraged that Andrew took centre stage by escorting the Queen at the Prince Philip Memorial Service in March.
The Telegraph reported that Prince Charles and Prince William were among senior royals “astounded that Andrew would take centre stage” after he settled his sex abuse case with Virginia Giuffre earlier this year.
Who did Prince Andrew get Covid from?
Andrew was last pictured on Wednesday, riding his horse around the Windsor Estate, where he resides.
It is unknown as to where the Prince caught Covid and who from.

He has been away from the public eye recently due to the Virginia Giuffre sexual abuse case.
Andrew has vehemently denied the assault claims but reached a £12million settlement in February to stop the case proceeding to a civil trial.
Does The Queen have Covid?
Before testing positive Andrew had recently seen the Queen, although he has not seen her since confirming his Covid status.
Her Majesty’s health has been steady over the past few months but officials shared that she is struggling with mobility issues.
The Queen herself had Covid previously in February 2022.
She tested positive for the virus, but only experienced “mild cold-like symptoms”.

Since then she has recovered and has been seen looking well as she takes part in Jubilee events.
Her Majesty even came to open the Elizabeth Line in May 2022.
