The ex-royal, 34, who lives in London and spent much of lockdown with her two sons Prince Gabriel of Nassau, 14, and Prince Noah of Nassau, 12, shared an Instagram video at the start of the month where she said she was in ‘a lot of pain’.

The former royal continued: ‘Make sure you eat something small before taking any medication.’
She added: ‘Never been so happy to see a doctor!’
Tessy first revealed her diagnosis at the start of the month in a video clip shared to Instagram.
During the clip, she said she was currently on ‘day three of corona at home’, saying: ‘I hope you have all started your December in the right way. I started it with a bang.
The former royal, who currently lives in London with her sons Prince Gabriel of Nassau, 14, and Prince Noah of Nassau, 12, said she had been left ‘very tired’ from the disease
‘I’m feeling much better, my fever is much better. I’m in a lot of pain but the rest is fine. After this I’m going to go to bed.’
She later said she planned to ‘pass out’, adding: ‘Thankyou so much for the wishes, I’m well, just very tired.’
Tessy’s diagnosis came days after a spate of royals across Europe tested positive for the disease.
Earlier this month, it emerged Sweden’s Prince Carl Philip and his wife Princess Sofia had also tested positive for coronavirus.
The mother-of-two revealed at the start of the month she has tested positive for coronavirus and said the illness has left her in ‘a lot of pain’
The pair, aged 41 and 35, suffered ‘light flu symptoms’ and isolated at their home in Stockholm with sons Prince Alexander, four, and Prince Gabriel, three.
Meanwhile it was also announced last month that Princess Michael of Kent, 75, had been diagnosed with coronavirus and was suffering from ‘extreme fatigue and terrible fevers’.
The royal, who is married to the Queen’s first cousin Prince Michael of Kent, was unwell for nearly a month, her spokesman confirmed.
Simon Astaire said Princess Michael tested positive for coronavirus after her housekeeper ‘fell ill’ in November.
The former Princess, who lost her title after divorcing Louis last April, is said to have maintained a close relationship with ex husband Louis, 34
Tessy of Luxembourg wed Louis in 2006, and has two children Prince Gabriel of Nassau and Prince Noah of Nassau with the Prince, who is the third son of the country’s reigning monarch Grand Duke Henri.
The former Princess, who lost her title after divorcing Louis last April, is said to have maintained a close relationship with ex husband Louis, 34.
The couple’s fairytale marriage broke down in 2016, and they were granted a decree nisi in February 2017, after 12 years together.

They were only 20 when they wed in 2006, getting married six months after the birth of their eldest son Prince Gabriel of Nassau.
Prince Louis, who will now pay £8,000 a year child support, renounced his succession rights to the throne in 2006, a month after marrying Tessy – who was not born of royal blood – but to a modest family in the small town of Niederkorn.
At a hearing in December, Louis was ordered to pay just £75-a-week to each of his two sons after a judge found his family’s vast wealth could not be factored into a divorce battle with his ex-wife.
Meanwhile it was reported recently Princess Michael of Kent had been diagnosed with the illness and was suffering from ‘extreme fatigue and terrible fevers’
Louis now lives in Paris, while Tessy juggles a busy work life with raising the couple’s two children across the Channel.
The philanthropist is the co-founder of social enterprise Professors Without Borders which aims to improve access to higher education across the globe.
She also works as a consultant, public speaker and is a UN Association patron.
