    Princess Eugenie’s father-in-law is battling the novel coronavirus in hospital, Metro reports.

    Both of Jack Brooksbank’s parents have tested positive for Covid-19. It’s a ‘traumatic time’ for the couple, but the family is ‘rallying round’, a friend of Eugenie’s has reportedly said.

    George Brooksbank, 71, is currently in a ‘serious but stable’ condition in intensive care, while his wife Nicola, 66, is recovering from the illness at home.

    Princess Eugenie is currently volunteering her time to support NHS workers during the coronavirus crisis, along with her mother, Sarah Ferguson.

    I'm so proud of my hospital, The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, as they have become a trauma centre for the first time since 1982 due to the incredibly challenging time we face and the unprecedented pressure all hospitals and their staff face. It has created a Covid-19 fund for the RNOH’s staff that urgently need our support. The purpose of the fund is to help their frontline clinical staff in any way possible – from providing meals, to purchasing essential equipment items, to supporting mental health in a time of crisis.
