Prince Charles has tested positive for coronavirus, we have learned this morning.
Clarence House announced the news in a statement early Wednesday, revealing that the 71-year-old had been displaying mild symptoms over the weekend and was tested by the NHS in Aberdeenshire on Monday.
“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,” a spokesperson said. “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.”
Unfortunately, there is no word on where or when exactly the Duke of Cornwall caught the virus.
