Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia of Sweden are continuing to isolate at their home. On Friday, the Swedish Royal Court shared an update on the royal couple following their coronavirus diagnosis.

It was announced last week that Sofia and Carl Philip tested positive for COVID-19. A statement from the royal court read, “On Wednesday, November 25, DD.KK.HH. Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia in quarantine after they showed symptoms of illness and were subsequently found to be infected with covid-19.”

The palace added, “The Prince and Princess show milder flu symptoms, but feel well under the circumstances. Immediately after the illness, the Prince and Princess were quarantined at home with their children.”

At the time, the Royal Court also revealed that King Carl XVI Gustaf, Queen Silvia, Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel would be tested because they had recently attended a private funeral with Sofia and Carl Philip. The monarchs and Crown Princess Couple have since tested negative and “remain healthy.”

Last month, Princess Sofia won the Corona Hero of the Year award—which is awarded to an individual who has contributed to making society a little better by educating and counteracting the spread of the novel coronavirus during the pandemic— at the virtual Consid Awards. The Swedish royal began volunteering at Sophiahemmet Hospital in April after undergoing intensive training to help relieve the nursing staff during the pandemic. Sofia reflected on her volunteer experience this summer, calling it “absolutely outstanding.”
