Earlier this week, Clarence House announced that the Prince of Wales, 71, has tested positive for coronavirus. He is displaying some mild symptoms but otherwise “remains in good health,” said a spokesperson, adding that the Duchess of Cornwall, 72, has also been tested but doesn’t carry the virus.

Prince Charles and Camilla are now self-isolating at Birkhall, their residence on the Balmoral estate.

A Clarence House statement read, “In accordance with government and medical advice, the prince and the duchess are now self-isolating at home in Scotland.”

Buckingham Palace informed that the Queen last saw her son, the heir to the throne, on 12 March, but was “in good health”. It added the Duke of Edinburgh was not present at that meeting, and that the Queen was now “following all the appropriate advice with regard to her welfare”.

The NHS in Aberdeen shire carried out the test, where they met the criteria required for testing, according to the Clarence House statement.

“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,” added the statement.
