Prince Charles tests positive for coronavirus | ITV News

Prince Charles has tested positive for coronavirus, Clarence House has announced.

The Duchess of Cornwall has also been tested but does not have the virus.

A source said both remained in good spirits and that the prince was up and about and not bedridden, while the medical advice is that it is unlikely to escalate into a more serious case.

Buckingham Palace have said the Queen “remains in good health” and last saw Charles on the morning of March 12.

The Duke of Edinburgh was not with the Queen at Buckingham Palace when she last met Charles, the palace confirmed.

He last saw the Queen at a public event on Monday, March 9, when senior royals including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey.

The prince travelled to Birkhall on Sunday before he was tested on Monday and they are both now self-isolating at the Burnham on the Balmoral Estate in Scotland.
