Prince Charles is speaking directly to the public following his recovery from coronavirus.
In a video message taken from his Scottish home on Wednesday, the 71-year-old opened up about his recent experience with his positive COVID-19 diagnosis and offered his thoughts and support for those across the world also affected by the virus.
“Having recently gone through the process of contracting this coronavirus, luckily with relatively mild symptoms, I now find myself on the other side of the illness, but still in no less a state of social distance and general isolation,” Charles said in the clip. “At such an unprecedented and anxious time in all our lives, my wife and I are thinking particularly of all those who have lost their loved ones in such very difficult and abnormal circumstances, and of those having to endure sickness, isolation and loneliness.”
Clarence House announced Charles’s diagnosis in a statement last week, writing, “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.”
Charles has been self-isolating at his home, Birkhall, with his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, and officially came out of self-isolation on Monday. On Thursday, the royal couple virtually showed their appreciation for those in the medical field who are helping individuals affected by the current pandemic.
We’re happy to see the prince happy, healthy and out of self-isolation.
