Prince Charles, who is first in line to the British throne, has tested positive for coronavirus after displaying mild symptoms, a palace spokesperson confirmed Wednesday.
“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 prince’s Clarence House office said in a statement Wednesday morning.
His wife – Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall – has tested negative for the virus, the spokesman said. The couple is reportedly self-isolating at their home in Scotland.
While Clarence House said it is “not possible to ascertain” whom Prince Charles may have caught the virus from, the office made note of a “high number of engagements” he carried out in recent weeks.
