Prince Charles has tested positive for coronavirus.

The Prince of Wales, 71, has ‘mild symptoms’ of Covid-19, which has killed 424 people across the UK. He otherwise ‘remains in good health’, a spokesperson for Clarence House said.

He has been working from home on the Balmoral Estate, in Scotland, for the last few days, where he is accompanied by Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall. She has tested negative for the virus.

Among Charles’ recent engagements was a Water Aid event on March 10, in which he sat opposite Prince Albert II of Monaco. Prince Albert became the first Royal Family member to test positive for coronavirus on March 19. Charles last saw the Queen ‘briefly’ on the morning of March 12, a spokesperson for Buckingham Palace confirmed.

The monarch, 93, is now said to be following ‘all appropriate advice with regard to her welfare’. She and Prince Phillip, 98, are both staying at Windsor Castle, in Berkshire.

The spokesperson for Clarence House said: ‘In accordance with government and medical advice, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall 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.’
