Prince Charles Tests Positive For Coronavirus

The Prince of Wales-Prince Charles is the latest high-profile personality that has tested positive to the deadly coronavirus which has spread to every continent in the world.

A statement from Clarence House said the Prince and heir to the English throne started exhibiting mild symptoms and was tested, leading to confirmation that he has indeed been affected.

A spokesman said the 71-year-old is displaying mild symptoms “but otherwise remains in good health,” adding that the Duchess of Cornwall, 72, has been tested but does not have the virus.

Charles and Camilla are now self-isolating as the pandemic rages through the UK.

Buckingham Palace said the Queen last saw her son on 12 March, a time that the Prince may have already been infected; but that she is, “in good health.”

The palace added that the Duke of Edinburgh was not present at that meeting, and that the Queen was now “following all the appropriate advice with regard to her welfare”.

A Clarence House statement read, “In accordance with government and medical advice, the prince and the duchess are now self-isolating at home in Scotland.

“The tests were carried out by the NHS in Aberdeenshire, where they met the criteria required for testing.

“It is not possible to ascertain from whom the prince caught the virus owing to the high number of engagements he carried out in his public role during recent weeks.”
