London: Prince Charles is the eldest son and heir of Queen Elizabeth II. His neocoronavirus symptoms are mild but “otherwise healthy.”
Clarence House said 71-year-old Camilla has no COVID-19 and is currently secluded in Scotland.
“The Prince of Wales has tested positive for Coronavirus,” it said in a statement, using his official title.
“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 (Camilla) 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.”
The couple were tested by the state-run National Health Service (NHS) in Aberdeenshire in northeast Scotland, it said.
“It is not possible to ascertain from whom the prince caught the virus owing to the high number of engagements he carried out in his public role during recent weeks,” it added.
On March 19, Queen Elizabeth II, now 93, and her husband, Prince Philip, 98 retired to Windsor Castle just outside London.
Due to an outbreak of the coronavirus, they left the Easter holiday for a week. There are more than 8,000 confirmed diseases in the UK and 422 deaths.
