Singer Kanika Kapoor has been undergoing treatment for the coronavirus in Lucknow and was once again the target of trolls after Prince Charles tested positive for the virus on Wednesday. Soon after, a picture of them together at an event went viral as trolls blamed the singer for passing on the virus to the prince. However, this isn’t true as the picture, according to a Deccan Chronicle report, is from the royal event held in 2015.

One of the viral pictures of Kanika, in an orange dress, chatting with Prince Charles, is from an event – the Elephant Family charity ‘Travels to my Elephants’ — hosted by Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, in 2015. However, trolls went on to criticise Kanika. While it takes 14 days for the symptoms to show, it’s impossible the singer must have infected him several years ago, much before the coronavirus came into existence
Kanika had tested positive for the novel coronavirus post her return from the United Kingdom. She was in the eye of the storm when she went on to attend parties instead of staying in self-quarantine. She is currently admitted at Sanjay Gandhi Postgraduate Institute
