Jack Brooksbank's father has reportedly been hospitalised after contracting the coronavirus.

According to People, 71-year-old George Brooksbank and his wife, Nicola, have both tested positive for Covid-19. While Nicola has been self-isolating at home, after being ill for a couple of weeks George needed urgent hospital care.

His condition is "serious but stable", reports HELLO! Magazine.

Princess Eugenie has not yet commented on her father-in-law's condition but has been sharing resources and information about the novel virus on social media.

Eugenie, along with her sister, Beatrice and mom, Sarah, has also made donations to support front-line workers.

The princess, along with the rest of her family, is thought to be self-isolating at the Royal Lodge in Windsor.

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. Tap the link in my bio to be directed to the just giving page or please get in touch with them for any donations in kind by emailing rnoh.fundraising@nhs.net or calling 0208 909 5362 @the.rnoh.charity @rnohnhs
