When they say that the coronavirus doesn’t care if you’re rich or poor or republican or democrat, they weren’t kidding. They also don’t care if you’re on track to become the King of England as news comes out that Prince Charles has tested positive like so many others around the world.
Prince Charles Is Self-Isolating
According to PEOPLE, he has “mild symptoms” but is in “good health” as he spends his time away from people, except wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, at their Balmoral estate in Scotland. Camilla has not tested positive, but Charles is 71 years of age and Camilla is 72.
A spokesperson sent out a statement saying, “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,” it said. “The tests were carried out by the NHS in Aberdeenshire where they met the criteria required for testing.”

The statement from Clarence House revealed they don’t know how the Prince of Wales caught the virus, owing to the fact that he’s had a busy schedule he’s kept. For example, on March 12, he attended a reception and dinner to aid the Australian bushfire relief and recovery effort. The day before that, it was the Prince’s Trust Awards 2020.
According to the PEOPLE article, March 12 was the last time Charles saw his mother, Queen Elizabeth. Her spokespeople say that she remains in good health. No word about when the last time he saw either of his sons or their children. While Prince Charles is the first to test positive of the royal family, others have spoken out about it.
In a message to the people, Prince William said, “Whenever and wherever adversity strikes, the people of the U.K. have a unique ability to pull together,” he said last week. “The way that local communities support those affected shows the very best of our values and human nature.”
