HEIR apparent to the British throne, Prince Charles has tested positive for coronavirus.
Prince Charles, 71, is displaying mild symptoms “but otherwise remains in good health”, his spokesman told British media.
Charles’s wife, Camilla has also been tested but does not have the virus.
However, his spokesman confirmed that Prince Charles had tested positive and is self-isolating at Balmoral, two weeks after meeting with Monaco’s Prince Albert who also has the killer bug.
“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,” the spokesman said.
“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.”
Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles’ mother, went into self-isolation a few days ago although she has tested negative to the virus.
