The Prince of Wales has tested positive for coronavirus, Clarence House has announced.
Prince Charles, 71, has been tested positive for coronavirus and is displaying mild symptoms “but otherwise remains in good health”, a spokesman said.
The Duchess of Cornwall, 72, has also been tested but does not have the virus. Both Charles and Camilla are now self-isolating at Balmoral. Buckingham Palace said the Queen last saw her son, the heir to the throne, on 12 March, but was “in good health”.
“The tests were carried out by the NHS in Aberdeenshire where they met the criteria required for testing. The palace added that the Duke of Edinburgh was not present at that meeting, and that the Queen was now “following all the appropriate advice with regard to her welfare”.
