The Prince of Wales, one of the most influential people in the world, has been confirmed to be tested positive for COVID-19. According to Clarence House, the British royal residence in Westminster, London, the source of virus which caused the prince to be infected was uncertain.

“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.”

Even though His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh has been tested positive for the virus, his symptoms are mild.

At the same time, the Duchess of Cornwall has been tested negative for the virus.


It was reported that the 71-year-old heir to the throne seemed healthy when he last met the Queen on March 12. As for the Queen, it is quite important to highlight that the Queen is in good health and moved to Windsor last week with the Duke of Edinburgh.


On March 10,  it was stated that Prince Charles has attended a Water Aid meeting in central London. Amongst all the participants from the meeting, Prince Albert of Monaco was also tested to be positive for COVID-19 on March 20.


Since then, Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla have been self-isolating themselves in Scotland where they arrived on Sunday. Although he was sick, the prince was still dedicated to fulfilling his royal responsibilities by working from home. He remained in a good spirit despite being diagnosed with the virus.
