Prince Charles is the latest famous personality to test positive for coronavirus. He will be working from home now as he is exhibiting mild symptoms. Prince Charles is the eldest son of the Queen and the heir to the Throne. He is 71 years old.

According to a Clarence House spokesperson, he was exhibiting mild symptoms, but he remains in good health. He has been working from home for the last few days.


Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwell will remain in self-isolation in their home in Scotland. According to the spokesperson, the Duchess tested negative to the virus.

However, no one knows how the prince contracted the virus. Besides, it will be difficult to ascertain from whom he contracted the virus due to the number of public duties he carried out in the past few weeks.

However, two weeks ago, Prince Charles met with Prince Albert of Monaco, who also tested positive for COVID-19.

His last public appearance was at Buckingham Palace on March 12 for Investiture. Moreover, his test result will raise fears among the royal family, including the Queen and Prince Philip. They were together at Windsor Castle.

So far, the virus has killed 422 people in the UK.

Before now, Prince Charles has been carrying out public engagements despite the coronavirus pandemic. However, he stopped shaking hands. Instead, he used “namaste gestures.”

Unfortunately, despite avoiding contact with people, he caught the coronavirus. This comes days after a staff member of Buckingham Palace tested positive for the virus.

It is unknown how Prince Charles contracted the Virus

Meanwhile, it appears the Royal Family has already prepared for the possibility that one of them could get the virus. Before now, they had already split up away from London.

The Queen and Prince Philip are both at Windsor Castle, while Charles and Camilla are at Balmoral in Aberdeenshire. Also, William and Kate are at Anmer Hall in Norfolk.

Although March 12 was the last time Charles has a public engagement, he has been having several private meetings. But Prince Charles has not met with the Queen since March 13.

In addition, his doctor estimated that he contracted the disease on March 13.
