The Duke of York, 62, has seen Her Majesty in the last few days but she has been tested and not met with her son since his diagnosis.
ndrew had been expected to join his mum at her Service of Thanksgiving on Friday at St Paul’s Cathedral but has now pulled out.
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.”

The Duchess of Cornwall also tested positive days after her husband.
