The supposed property purchase is “definitely not happening”, a spokesman for Clarence House said.

He stressed that Prince William and Kate Middleton are not buying property in Tuscany or anywhere else in Italy.

The statement follows a report in La Nazione on Tuesday that the couple could buy a €25 million home in the coming days.

The newspaper said that the royals were planning on buying the Selva estate, in Monteroni d’Arbia, south of Siena.

The owner of the villa told The Local that the report is “completely false”.

The 900-hectare Selva estate includes vineyards, olive groves, stables and three lakes.

Sweden’s Royal Court announced that Prince Daniel had tested positive in a press release issued on Sunday, while Crown Princess Victoria’s second infection was revealed in another release on Saturday.

According to the press releases Prince Daniel was suffering “very mild symptoms and feels well”, while Princess Victoria has “the symptoms of a cold but otherwise feels well”.  

The couple are both now isolating in Haga Palace in the north of Stockholm, where they have lived since 2010. 

Sweden’s King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia, who are triple-vaccinated, both tested positive on Tuesday. The couple are now symptom-free, but are continuing their isolation at Drottningholm Palace to the west of Stockholm. 

Prince Carl Philip, Victoria’s younger brother, and his wife Princess Sofia were the first Swedish royals to test positive in November 2020.
