Prince Charles tests positive for the coronavirus

Prince Charles, 71, has tested positive for infection with the coronavirus, the British royal family said on Wednesday.

Clarence House said Charles is self-isolating at home in Scotland with his wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall.

“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 said, adding that Camilla, 72, is not infected.

A Buckingham Palace spokeswoman said Queen Elizabeth II, Charles’ 93-year-old mother, “remains in good health.”

“The queen last saw the Prince of Wales briefly after the investiture on the morning of March 12 and is following all the appropriate advice with regard to her welfare,” the palace said, referring to Charles by another of his official titles.

The palace did not mention the queen’s 98-year-old husband, Prince Philip, who has largely retired from official duties after his health deteriorated in recent years.

Charles hosted a Water Aid summit at Clarence House in London on March 10 that was attended by another infected royal, Prince Albert II of Monaco.
