Britain’s Prince Charles 71 has tested positive for COVID-19. The prince is said to have mild symptoms and is under self-quarantine. The prince has been having many engagements in the past two weeks and it’s possible that he got the virus from one of his engagements. The prince is the first member of the royal family to test positive for the virus. His wife Camilla, however, tested negative even though she is also in self-quarantine.
According to the prince’s spokesperson:
“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.”
Both Prince Charles and Camilla are currently at Birkhall in Scotland where they are self-isolating.
