Clarence House has confirmed that the Prince of Wales, 71, has tested positive for COVID-19.

In a statement released on Wednesday, a spokesman said: “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.”

It added: “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.”

Charles is the first member of the British royal family to have tested positive for the virus. Last week, Prince Albert of Monaco, 62, was confirmed to have COVID-19 and the Danish royal court revealed that Prince Henrik, ten, was tested for the virus after breathing problems associated with asthmatic bronchitis. He was given the all-clear from a hospital in Copenhagen. 

Meanwhile, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh are currently residing at Windsor Castle. Her Majesty, 93, began her Easter break early at the Berkshire palace last week, while Prince Philip, 98, was flown there by helicopter from Sandringham, Norfolk.
