Prince Charles has tested positive for coronavirus and is self-isolating at his home in Scotland, The news confirmed in an official statement from Clarence House.
“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,” the statement said.
The Duchess of Cornwall, 72, has also been tested for COVID-19 but was found not to have the virus.
“In accordance with government and medical advice, the Prince and the Duchess are now self-isolating at home in Scotland,” Clarence House added.
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.
Charles’s last public engagement was on March 12 but he didn’t have a number of private meetings with Highgrove and Duchy individuals, all of whom have been made aware.
