Prince Andrew has been forced to sit out of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee service after catching coronavirus.

Buckingham Palace has confirmed the Duke of York has tested positive for Covid and will no longer attend the Jubilee service of thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral.

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."

It is understood Andrew saw the Queen in the last few days but has been undertaking regular testing and has not seen her since he tested positive.

Eyes were set to be on Andrew who was to make his biggest public appearance since stepping down from public life to settle a civil court case after being accused of sexual assault.
