Prince Charles left royal fans shocked and marvelled by his commitment to his patronages and charities after Clarence House issued an update on Twitter. The Prince of Wales, his office revealed over three tweets, continued to be in touch with the Chairman and CEO of the British Red Cross even while displaying mild symptoms of COVID-19.
Prince Charles, who is the President of the UK’s Red Cross, learned what the fantastic organisation is doing to help the NHS, the country and the individuals during the coronavirus pandemic.
The tweets read: “Last week, The Prince of Wales spoke on the phone to the Chairman and Chief Executive of @BritishRedCross to hear of the remarkable work the charity is doing in response to the COVID-19 crisis, both in the UK and overseas.
“The Prince is proud to see how kindness is keeping people together and asked for his thanks and best wishes to be shared with everyone at @BritishRedCross, who is responding so brilliantly.
“HRH has met many volunteers over the years, in his role as President.”
Clarence House then described what Red Cross volunteers have been doing over the past few weeks.
Among their activities, volunteers at the Red Cross supported hospitals by helping people get discharged at home safely, shared trusted information, helped food banks and checked in with vulnerable people.
These messages of kindness and commitment amazed some of the prince’s supporters.
One wrote: “It’s amazing the Prince continues to serve even during his self-isolation last week. Thank you.”
Another said: “Great work our Royal Family are doing to support charities.”
And a third simply added: “So true a message”.
Prince Charles tested positive for coronavirus last Monday, after having experienced mild symptoms over the weekend.
Both he and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, received their tests’ results on Tuesday evening.
Clarence House announced the Prince of Wales was positive the morning after, while stating Camilla tested negative.
The couple, who married in 2005, self-isolated in two different wings of their Scottish home in Birkhall, and continued to work on their projects.
The pair also took part in the touching Clap For The NHS initiative, footage shared by Clarence House showed.
Prince Charles, as announced by his office, left the quarantine on Monday following his doctors’ advice.
Camilla will need to remain in seclusion until the end of the week to make sure she hasn’t got coronavirus from her husband.
Prince Charles isn’t the only royal who keeps working during these trying times.
The Queen is holding her weekly meetings with the Prime Minister over the phone and continues to receive the Government’s red boxes every day.
Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince William continue to be in contact with their patronages, as revealed by Kensington Palace on Sunday.
Sharing two pictures of the royals in their home offices, Kensington Palace wrote: “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been in regular contact with organisations and patronages to understand the issues they are facing during this difficult time.
“Last week The Duke spoke to @MindCharity CEO Paul Farmer and The Duchess spoke to @Place2Be CEO Catherine Roche.”
