Prince Albert’s eldest daughter Jazmin Grimaldi has revealed on Instagram that she has tested positive for Covid-19 and has been struggling through the “debilitating” symptoms of the virus.
The 28-year-old Grimaldi took to social media on Wednesday 15th July to tell people that she was not at all surprised by the positive test result, as she had been suffering with an illness over the past few days, adding that her “hope is to help at least one person with this video.”
“I have been really cautious,” the Prince’s daughter said. “I have been social distancing. I only go out to get the groceries and I always wear a mask and I always sanitize. I hope I can help at least one person today with this personal testament because over this past week I’ve fallen really ill.”
She described her symptoms as sore throat, fever and chills followed by “debilitating” headaches that sleep did not mitigate.

“You don’t think it’s ever going to happen to you and I was being cautious,” she said in her video statement. “We don’t know enough, and even if we are young and resilient enough to fight it off, I don’t wish it on anyone. And we don’t know how each of our bodies is going to handle it, so I am a survivor and I’m getting through this and I’m so thankful for that. But I just wanted to share this with you to give you a little bit of a
warning and peace of mind.”
“I know a lot of us will get it,” she continued. “It’s scary and I just want everyone, especially in the United States, to take it seriously. It will continue to persist if we don’t take proper action now. It’s not political, it’s about our health.”
Her father the Prince contracted the virus four months ago and, after a brief and mild illness, made a full recovery.
