Prince Charles has tested positive for COVID-19, his office, Clarence House, has revealed today. The Prince of Wales remains “in good health” and has been displaying “mild symptoms”, a spokesman added.
In a statement, Clarence House said: “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.”
As he is only displaying mild symptoms, Prince Charles doesn’t need to be in a hospital.
The Prince of Wales is self-isolating in his Scottish home with his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.
The Duchess has also been tested, Clarence House said, but she doesn’t have coronavirus.
The statement continued: “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.”
