LONDON (Reuters) – Prince Charles, heir to the British throne, has tested positive for coronavirus according to his household.
Queen Elizabeth's eldest son, Charles, is 71 years old.
"The Prince of Wales tested positive for coronavirus," said Clarence House in a statement. "He showed mild symptoms, but is otherwise in good health and has worked from home as usual in the past few days."
"The Duchess of Cornwall has also been tested but has no virus," said Clarence House. The Prince and his wife Camilla are self-isolating at home in Scotland.
"Because of the high number of engagements he has performed in his public role over the past few weeks, it is not possible to determine who the prince got the virus from."
