Prince Charles was confirmed to have contracted the coronavirus, confirmed the Clarence House on Wednesday.

The 71-year-old Prince of Wales was diagnosed with the infectious disease, according to a statement released by Clarence House.

Charles, heir to the British throne, has been self-isolating in Scotland since the outbreak of the disease and is said to remain “otherwise in good health.”

The Duchess of Cornwall had also undergone tests for COVID-19 but was confirmed negative.

“The Prince of Wales has tested positive for coronavirus. 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 statement read.

“The Duchess of Cornwall 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 tests were carried out by the NHS in Aberdeenshire where they met the criteria required for testing.”

“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,” the statement added.

The British royal family member had met with Prince Albert of Monaco earlier in March, who tested positive only nine days after meeting Charles at a WaterAid event in London.
