In a statement released this morning, Clarence House confirmed that the royal tested positive for the novel virus.


A Clarence House spokesman said the Duchess of Cornwall had also been tested but does not have the virus.

The statement reads:

“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.

“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.

“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.”
