Prince Charles Tests Positive For Coronavirus

Prince Charles tested positive Coronavirus

Prince Charles, 71, has coronavirus but remains in “good health.”

A Clarence House spokesperson confirmed the news in a statement early Wednesday morning:

“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 far as his 72-year-old wife, Camilla — she does not have the virus COVID-19:

“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.”

As you might recall, Charles was taking precautions weeks ago, as he stopped shaking hands with people, and instead used a “namaste” as a tool to keep distance. Guess it just shows this sickness is extremely airborne, and we all need to be taking it VERY seriously.

We’re glad he’s resting at Birkhall, the couple’s home on Queen Elizabeth‘s Balmoral estate in Scotland. Speaking of the Queen, she remains healthy even though she saw Charles less than two weeks ago. Buckingham Palace‘s statement reads:

“Her Majesty The Queen remains in good health. The Queen last saw The Prince of Wales briefly after the investiture on the morning of 12th March and is following all the appropriate advice with regard to her welfare.”

We hope the same goes for her husband Prince Philip, who has been very frail over the last few months, in and out of the hospital.

It was just last week when Elizabeth released an uplifting yet serious statement about the pandemic:

“At times such as these, I am reminded that our nation’s history has been forged by people and communities coming together to work as one, concentrating our combined efforts with a focus on the common goal. We are enormously thankful for the expertise and commitment of our scientists, medical practitioners and emergency and public services; but now more than any time in our recent past, we all have a vitally important part to play as individuals – today and in the coming days, weeks and months.”
