After weeks of worldwide devastating news from the famed COVID-19, dozens of countries locking down to prevent the spread of the disease and multiple celebs and royals coming out as positive for the virus, the royal world mourns the passing of one of their members.

The 86-year-old Spanish Princess María Teresa de Borbón-Parma, Spanish King Felipe’s VI cousin, sadly passed last Thursday in Paris after battling the deadly coronavirus.

Her dear brother, Prince Sixto Enrique de Borbón-Parma, announced the sad news via a Facebook post where he stated a funeral was being held in Madrid on Friday along with a throwback black and white picture of him and his late sister.

“S.A.R. Don Sixto Enrique de Borbón communicates that this Thursday, March 26, 2020, has passed away in Paris, at the age of 86, his sister María Teresa de Borbón-Parma and Borbón Busset, victim of coronavirus COVID-19”, stated the Prince.

The sad news comes just a few days after having the heir to the British throne, Prince Charles and Monaco’s Prince Albert publicly confirming their positive tests for the COVID-19.
