It has been months since the news came out about a deadly and highly contagious virus originating from Wuhan, China. Little did we know, at the time, how rapidly it would spread across the globe. As of today, there are over million COVID-19 cases around the world. Some of them include high-level public figures, like Hollywood actors and several elected officials from different countries. The COVID-19 can be contracted by anyone, from working class citizens to royal heirs!
Yes, you heard that right. Prince Charles has tested positive for COVID-19. The Clarence House confirmed that the 71-year-old heir to the throne has been diagnosed with the coronavirus.
According to sources, the Prince of Wales showed ‘mild symptoms’ on Sunday, and was tested the next day. The results of the test came back positive late on Tuesday night.
So far, Prince Charles is currently in self-isolation in Scotland with the Duchess of Cornwall, who fortunately tested negative for COVID-19.
“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. Prince Charles’ last public event was a reception and dinner in aid of the Australian bush-fire relief effort on 12 March, which took place at Mansion House in London.”
It is speculated that Prince Charles contracted the deadly virus during this ceremony at Buckingham Palace. As for the Queen, the 93-year-old monarch remains in ‘good health’, following all appropriate health and safety protocols. Stay posted for more updates.
