Prince Charles tests positive for coronavirus: Clarence House

Prince Charles has tested positive for coronavirus and is in self-isolation, Clarence House confirmed in a statement this morning.

The news comes after Prince Charles has tested positive for the coronavirus, according to a statement from Clarence House on March 25.

This week, Health Secretary, Matt Hancock said people can go to work if they are unable to do so from their homes, reports BBC.

It says his wife Camilla, 72, has tested negative.

Prince Charles and Camilla are now at their Burnham home on the Balmoral Estate in Scotland.

On Tuesday, the British Department of Health said that the United Kingdom -wide death toll from coronavirus was 335, with 6,650 positive cases overall. It's highly possible that he contracted it at a WaterAid event in London earlier in March - where he was sat near Prince Albert of Monaco, who was diagnosed with the virus a week ago.

The royal couple are now believed to be self isolating in Scotland.

Florida earlier in the week announced it was requiring anyone entering the state from NY or New Jersey to enter a 14-day quarantine.

The Palace also said it would not be commenting further at this time.

Sky News reported that Prince Charles might already be infected with the disease since March 13, which was more than two weeks from now.

The Queen is with Prince Philip at Windsor Castle, Prince William and Kate are at Amner Hall in Norfolk, and Charles and Camilla are at Balmoral in Aberdeenshire.

The Prince's last public engagement was on March 12, but he did have a number of private meetings with Highgrove and Duchy individuals, all of whom have been made aware.

Medical advice is that it is unlikely that his condition will escalate into a more serious case. Charles has spoken to both Queen Elizabeth and his children.

The queen's statement comes after she said last week that the royal family is taking every precaution to curb the spread of the virus and flatten the curve.
