Prince Charles has tested positive for the Coronavirus. The 71-year-old, who is second in line to the throne, is displaying mild symptoms but is ‘otherwise in good health’
The Duchess of Cornwall has also been tested, but unlike Prince Charles, does not have the Coronavirus.
Prince Charles and the Duchess are now self-isolating at Balmoral, the Scottish holiday home used by the Royal family.
An official statement read: “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.”
Thankfully, the Queen is currently in good health.
An official statement said: “Her Majesty The Queen remains in good health. The Queen last saw The Prince of Wales briefly… on 12th March and is following all the appropriate advice with regard to her welfare.”
