Prince Charles tests positive for COVID-19

PRINCE CHARLES has tested positive for COVID-19, after displaying “mild symptoms”.

He “otherwise remains in good health”, said Clarence House, adding that he had been self-isolating in Scotland with the Duchess of Cornwall, who tested negative.

“The Prince of Wales has tested positive for coronavirus,” the statement said.

“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 Duchess of Cornwall has also been tested but does not have the virus. 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.”

The statement added that was “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”.

The BBC reported that Prince Charles had been “working from home over the last few days, and has held a number of private meetings with Highgrove and Duchy of Cornwall individuals, all of whom have been made aware”.

According to a palace source, the prince “has spoken to both the Queen and his sons—the Dukes of Cambridge and Sussex—and is in good spirits”.

As on Wednesday (25), the UK had 8,077 coronavirus cases, with 422 deaths.
