Coronavirus: Prince Charles out of self-isolation

The Prince of Wales has tested positive for coronavirus, Clarence House has confirmed.

BBC reported that Prince Charles, 71, is displaying mild symptoms “but otherwise remains in good health”, a spokesman said.

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

Clarence House said Charles and Camilla were now self-isolating in Balmoral in Scotland, adding it was “not possible to ascertain from whom the prince caught the virus”.

They added: “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 had only just met with Prince Albert of Monaco earlier this month, who later tested positive for coronavirus.

The 62-year-old ruler tested positive just nine days after he sat opposite the Prince of Wales at a WaterAid event in London.

The Queen is currently in Windsor Castle after heading there a week earlier than planned amid the coronavirus panic.
