Crown Princess Victoria and Crown Prince Daniel of Sweden are isolating after testing positive for COVID-19.

The Royal Court of Sweden announced on Facebook Thursday that the couple began isolating at home with their two children — Princess Estelle, 9, and Prince Oscar, 5 — after Victoria began experiencing cold symptoms the previous day.

Princess Victoria, 43, and Prince Daniel, 47, "are showing slight symptoms, but feeling well according to circumstances," the statement said.

Celebrations of Princess Victoria's name day scheduled for Friday have been canceled.

Several royals around the world have tested positive for coronavirus in the past year, including Prince Charles, Prince William and Princess Michael of Kent of the U.K. and Prince Albert of Monaco.

Princess Sofia's pregnancy news came in December, shortly after she and Prince Carl Philip announced that they had tested positive for coronavirus and were quarantining.

The royal couple began to experience flu-like symptoms in late November, not long after family members gathered to mourn Queen Silvia's brother, Walther Sommerlath, who died on Oct. 23.

The Swedish Royal Court has given an update on the royal's pregnancy earlier this year to the Swedish magazine Svensk Damtiding. "Princess Sofia is still fine, and everything is going well," they said in a statement.

The King of Sweden spoke out against the country's handling of the coronavirus pandemic in a rare rebuff.

"I think we have failed," King Carl XVI Gustaf, 74, said in his Christmas broadcast. "A large number have died, and that is terrible."

Unlike many European countries, Sweden has avoided a full lockdown amid the pandemic, instead relying on voluntary guidelines.

"The people of Sweden have suffered tremendously in difficult conditions," the Swedish monarch said. "One thinks of all the family members who have happened to be unable to say goodbye to their deceased family members. I think it is a tough and traumatic experience not to be able to say a warm goodbye."
