Fortunately, Good Morning Britain's  resident doctor Hilary Jones was on hand to help and promised to prescribe Kate some eye-drops.

But Kate was quick to make light of the situation and quipped to her co-host Ben Shephard : "I'm not winking at you!"

Kate's eye infection worrying developed after she recently met Prince Charle on March 11.

Yesterday (25  March) Prince Charles, 71 tested positive for coronavirus.

The news sent shock waves through the UK as royal fans fear for the safety of the Queen and Prince Philip.

Clarence House announced the news yesterday in a lengthy statement.

They revealed: "He has been displaying mild symptoms but otherwise remains in good health."

It is thought he contracted COVID-19 from the Prince of Monaco who tested positive last week.

Royal fans are worried as the Prince's age means he is in the vulnerable category.

His wife Camilla tested negative for coronavirus.

TV host Kate Garraway revealed she had attended an event at the Prince's Trust a few weeks ago.

Just a day before Prince Charles met Prince Albert of Monaco.

"We were relatively close there, as well all the other people involved in that.," she said.

She continued: "I don't have any symptoms so I'm not blaming him for that but people are going to be concerned.

"He's a man who meets a lot of people."

If you suspect you have symptoms of COVID-19, make sure to read Dr Hilary's advice or head to the NHS website.
