Clarence House announced in a statement on Wednesday morning that Prince Charles has tested positive for COVID-19. The 71-year-old Prince of Wales is said to have "mild symptoms" and is currently "self-isolating" in Scotland with his wife, Duchess Camilla, who has tested negative for the coronavirus.
Prince Charles "has been displaying mild symptons"
The statement released by Clarence House reads as follows: "The Prince of Wales has tested positive for coronavirus. He has been displaying mild symptoms but otherwise remains in good health and has been working from home throughout the last few days as usual."
Prince Charles & Camilla are "self-isolating" in Scotland
"The Duchess of Cornwall has also been tested but does not have the virus," the statement continues. "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."
Prince Charles, who attended his last public royal engagement on March 12, is now among the group advised by the British government to remain at home for the next twelve weeks. And he is not the only royal, who has contracted the virus: Prince Albert II., Prince of Monaco, has also tested positive for COVID-19.
