Prince Charles (71) has been tested positive for the coronavirus, the British royal family reports Wednesday.
The prince shows “mild symptoms” but is otherwise in good health, said Clarence House, one of the official London residences of the British court.
“He’s been working from home the last few days.” His wife Camilla has also been tested for the virus, but is according to ITV not infected. Both are currently in home insulation in their home in Scotland.
After Charles and Camilla showed symptoms, the National Health Service decided to test them for the virus. Because he has had many different appointments in recent weeks, it is not possible to trace where he contracted the virus.
British royalty reporter Chris Ship let know that Charles was in a room with Prince Albert of Monaco on March 10 at an event in London. March 19, it was announced that Albert tested positive for the coronavirus.
