However, none of the children at Prince George, six, and four-year-old Princess Charlotte’s £19,000 a year independent school, have been officially diagnosed with the contagious illness.

Meanwhile, various schools across the country have closed amid the health epidemic, after the virus broke out in Italy during half term.

The school is said to have issued a statement on the situation to Spanish news outlet, El Confidencial, saying, “Like all schools, we are taking very seriously the potential risks related to the spread of Covid-19 and to this end we are following the Government's instructions to the letter on infection prevention and case management in which it is suspected that some staff member or students exposed to the virus or showing any symptoms.

“We currently have a very small number of students who have been evaluated and these individuals currently remain in their homes waiting to receive the results of their exams.

“All parents have been informed and we have maintained regular communication with our school community to ensure that councils are shared and important information circulated.

“Of course, we will preserve the confidentiality of staff and students, and we will not comment on specific cases.”
