According to an interview given to Vanitatis, Princess Béatrice d’Orléans has stated that she is well and fully recovered after dealing with a mild case of the novel coronavirus.
The princess, who is seventy-eight years-old, developed a minor form of the disease and recovered from it while resting at her residence in Marbella. When she discovered she had COVID-19, Béatrice was in Brussels with her daughter Princess Adélaïde and her grandchildren. However, as the closing of borders between E.U. member nations became imminent, Princess Béatrice made the choice to return to her home in Spain as she preferred to be in solitary confinement in her own house. Her doctors have confirmed that she is now back to a perfect state of health.
Princess Béatrice d’Orléans was born Béatrice Pasquier de Franclieu; she married Prince Michel d’Orléans, Count of Érveux, in 1967. The couple had four children: Princess Clotilde, Princess Adélaïde, Prince Charles-Philippe, and Prince François. Béatrice and Michel divorced in 2012. A recipient of the Légion d’honneur, the princess has worked in public relations and in the world of fashion.
