Britain’s Prince Charles tests positive for coronavirus

LONDON: Prince Charles, heir apparent to the British throne, has tested positive for coronavirus, Clarence House said on Wednesday.

The future king, 71, had been displaying mild symptoms but remains in “good health”.

According to Clarence House: “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.”

His wife Camilla, 72, tested negative for the bug, with the couple now self-isolating in Scotland.

They added: “In accordance with [British] 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 an event in London.

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

The 93-year-old and husband Prince Phillip, 98, released a statement urging Britain to come together during the trying times.
