Prince Charles tests positive for Covid-19
The heir to the British throne, Prince Charles has tested positive for coronavirus.
Clarence House confirmed in a statement that the royal has been diagnosed with the Covid-19 disease.
"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 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.
The statement added: "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 Queen last saw the Prince of Wales briefly on the morning of March 12 and is following all the appropriate advice with regard to her welfare, according to Buckingham Palace officials.
The Prince and other members of the royal family were last seen together on March 8, at the Commonwealth service alongside, his children Princes William and Harry and their spouses Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle.
The Prince of Wales was seen to namaste people as he greeted them, to avoid shaking hands.
He's the most recent in a long line of high-profile celebrities and heads of state to have tested positive for coronavirus.
Tom Hanks and his wife singer-songwriter Rita Wilson recently left the hospital in Queensland Australia, after testing positive for Covid-19.
They are now safely under quarantine in a neighbouring rented home.
Prince Albert of Monaco and Idris Elba also recently confirmed that they contracted coronavirus.
