Prince Charles vaccinated after battling coronavirus in 2020
Prince Charles has now been vaccinated after testing positive for the virus in March 2020, during the early moments of the outbreak. His son, Prince William, also battled the disease not long after, but that news wasn't released until some months later.
It's thought that Charles and Camilla have been in lockdown at Highgrove House in Gloucestershire. They also welcomed a new member into the Royal Family on Tuesday, when Princess Eugenie—niece of Prince Charles—gave birth to a son.
