Prince Charles has tested positive for the new coronavirus. The Prince’s Clarence House office says the 71-year-old is showing mild symptoms of COVID-19. His wife, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, has tested negative for the virus according to the statement from Clarence House. Both Prince Charles and Camila are now self-isolating at a royal estate in Scotland.

Queen Elizabeth remains in “good health,” she last saw Prince Charles on March 12. Buckingham Palace added that the Queen is following all the appropriate advice with regard to her welfare.

A Clarence House statement read: “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 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.”

In an earlier statement issued by the Palace, the Queen said the world was entering “a period of great concern and uncertainty” and that many would need to “find new ways of staying in touch with each other and making sure that loved ones are safe.” The Queen also said she and her family were ready to play their part.
