Prince Charles, 71, reveals he has tested positive for coronavirus

A royal source said the Prince of Wales was tested on Monday and got the results on Tuesday.

She last saw Prince Charles briefly on the morning of Thursday, March 12, and "is following all the appropriate advice with her welfare", the palace said.

Clarence House did not say where or how the prince had contracted the virus.

The 71-year-old is now self-isolating at home in Scotland with his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall, who is 72. His wife Camilla, per the Metro, has tested negative for the virus. The released statement indicated that Prince Charles and Camila are now in self-isolation at Balmoral in Scotland.

A spokesperson explained that the 71-year-old Prince of Wales was tested after meeting the criteria and continues to exhibit mild symptoms.

Rather conveniently, reports the Telegraph, "a source said his doctor's most conservative estimate was that the prince was contagious from March 13".

93-year-old Queen Elizabeth is said to be in "good health", as she announced that she is canceling all public events "as a sensible precaution".

Sky News reported that Prince Charles might already be infected with the disease since March 13, which was more than two weeks from now.

The Prince is now self-isolating in Scotland, where he had been carrying out a number of Royal engagements. His last public engagement was March 12.

We should note that Prince Charles has been working from home in recent days.

Despite the rising number of cases, most who contract the virus suffer only mild symptoms before making a recovery.

Charles is understood to have since spoken both to the Duke of Cambridge, who is in Norfolk, and the Duke of Sussex, who is on Vancouver Island. Charles is the first Royal Family member to be diagnosed with Covid-19, and he falls within one of the highest risk categories given his age.
