Sweden's Princess Sofia doing well with pregnancy after recovering from COVID-19


Princess Sofia of Sweden, who is expecting her third child with husband Prince Carl Philip, is doing “well” with her pregnancy weeks after recovering from COVID-19.

Princess Sofia and Prince Carl Philip had both tested positive for novel coronavirus last month, shortly before they announced the pregnancy. The royal couple got tested after they began experiencing flu-like symptoms in late November, soon after the family members gathered in a socially-distanced ceremony to mourn Queen Silvia’s brother, Walther Sommerlath, who died on October 23.

The Swedish Royal Court recently gave an update on the royal’s pregnancy and assured that the 37-year-old is doing “well” despite her experience with the illness. The royal court said in a statement to Sweden’s Svensk Damtiding magazine: “Princess Sofia is still fine, and everything is going well.”
