According to CNN, Prince Charles is one of the latest major figures to test positive for novel coronavirus. Clarence House released a statement saying that his symptoms are mild and that the Prince Of Wales, who is otherwise “in good health,” is currently self-isolating in Scotland. You can read the full statement below:
“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 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.
“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.”
Due to his naturally busy schedule, how he contracted the virus is currently unclear. Buckingham Palace confirmed that Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip are currently in good health and isolated at Windsor Castle. All royal engagements and visits have been canceled until further notice.
