Prince Charles tests positive but ‘remains in good health’

Prince Philip

Prince Charles has contracted coronavirus as the disease hits the royal family.

His last public engagement took place on March 12, which is also when Prince Charles last saw the Queen according to Buckingham Palace. "We will not be commenting further". For any concerns and latest advice, visit the World Health Organisation.

Last week, Queen Elizabeth left her Buckingham Palace home in London for Windsor Castle amid the coronavirus outbreak.

The 71-year-old has another wooden coffee table with colourful wildflowers in a vase, while a butterfly palm plant stands in a blue and white ceramic planter next to the window, which has floor-length dark curtains hanging over it. Much of the royal family had already begun to spread out across Britain - away from London, placing themselves in quarantine.

The couple are said not to be interacting with that small team of staff in any way.

The prince and his wife, and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, are now self-isolating in Balmoral in Scotland.

The representative added: "The tests were carried out by the NHS in Aberdeenshire where they met the criteria required for testing".


Like many people, Charles previously found it hard to stop shaking hands, as that is, essentially, his job.

Last Wednesday, the prince was joined by a host of celebrities, including British TV hosts Ant and Dec, singer Craig David and actor Pierce Brosnan, to celebrate the achievements of young people helped by his charity, the Prince's Trust Awards. He extended and then quickly withdrew his hand to those waiting to greet him - twice.

No details have been made public about exactly what symptoms Charles has displayed, except that they were mild.

On Tuesday, the British Department of Health said that the United Kingdom -wide death toll from coronavirus was 335, with 6,650 positive cases overall.

The tests were carried out by the National Health Service in Scotland.

Prince Charles has spoken to his sons Prince William and Prince Harry to share the news of his positive coronavirus diagnosis, the palace confirms.
