The deadly pandemic has affected every sector of the society, including the members of the royal family England. Clarence House confirms Prince Charles tested positive for COVID-19. The news of the 71-year-old royal’s health has been released in a recent statement on 25th
The prince is said to have shown "mild symptoms" of the coronavirus on Sunday and was later tested on the next day. The reports of the test confirms the infection in the body of the heir to the throne. The result revealed this sad news on Tuesday night.
According to sources, Charles is in good health and has been kept isolated in Scotland along with Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla. However, the Duchess has been tested negative for the virus.
“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,” said the released statement.
It also added,” 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.”
Doctors assume Prince Charles would have been contagious from the 13th
of March and last met the Queen on the 12th
March morning. However, the Queen has been reported to be in “good health”.
On the 10th
of March, the Prince had hosted a WaterAid summit for discussing the effects of climate change on access to drinking water at the Clarence House. The summit was attended by many, including the Prince Albert of Monaco, who has later became the first royal from the state to came out positive for coronavirus.
We wish speedy recovery of the Prince.
