The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, or William and Kate, as we know them best, are the firm favorites of the younger, more modern monarchy.

They have long been royal favorites.

Following their lavish, and highly documented royal wedding in 2011, Wills and Kate were thrown into the media spotlight, and we still can't get enough of them.

They met while studying at university.

William, who is the son of Prince Charles and in line for the throne, met Kate at the University of St Andrew's in Scotland in 2001.

Though their relationship was on and off for years...

They clearly couldn't stay away from each other, and their engagement was announced in 2010, 9 years after they first met.

And, ever since, we have followed them as their own little family grew.

In July 2013, Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge was born, becoming the third in line to the throne of Great Britain. Kate emerged from St. Mary's hospital in London in a blue polka dot dress, which many saw as a fitting tribute to Princess Diana, who wore a similar spotty attire herself some thirty-one years earlier.

Princess Charlotte followed shortly after.

Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana was born in May 2015, just under 2 years after her older brother.

The princess has actually made royal history.

Princess Charlotte became the first female royal to retain her claim to the throne, despite having a younger brother. Before the Succession to the Crown Act 2013, the birth of a son meant that he would leap over any older daughters in the line of succession.

Traditionally, Prince Louis would have overtaken Charlotte in the line to the throne.

But, now that Princess Charlotte hasn't been ruled out by gender, Prince Louis remains fifth-in-line to the throne, while Charlotte is fourth-in-line behind her older brother, Prince George.

So, as you can see...

William and Kate really are paving the path to a more modern monarchy.

And that fashion gene seems to have been passed down to their children...

This is quite simply one of the sweetest things we've seen.

But this time, the family are in the headlines for a very different reason.

Fans were shocked to learn that the Duke of Cambridge had tested positive for coronavirus.

His diagnosis came just days after his father, Prince Charles, contracted the virus.

“William was hit pretty hard by the virus — it really knocked him for 6,’’ a source told The Sun.

Some of William's symptoms were extremely worrying.

“At one stage he was struggling to breathe, so obviously everyone around him was pretty panicked," the source added.

But William was determined to keep his diagnosis a secret.

“After seeing medics and testing positive, which was obviously quite a shock given how fit and healthy he is, William was determined it should be business as usual," the source said.

He didn't want to worry the nation more.

The Duke was treated by palace doctors and properly quarantined at his family’s home, all while continuing on with appearances via video calls.

We're glad to hear that Prince William has made a recovery from the virus.
