Clarence House confirmed that the 71-year-old heir to the throne was diagnosed with the COVID-19 disease in a statement released this morning.

The royal displayed “mild symptoms” on Sunday and was then tested on Monday, with the results coming through late on Tuesday night, the statement said.

Charles “otherwise remains in good health” and has been self-isolating in Scotland with the Duchess of Cornwall, who has tested negative for coronavirus.

The Prince’s last public appearances were on March 12. 

According to the article he also saw the Queen on that day but she is reported to be in good health.  

Hopefully reading this will help people realize that the disease can strike anybody, and that if we don’t take social distancing seriously, at some point it is very likely we will all be exposed to the virus.
