Prince Charles tested positive for COVID-19

PETALING JAYA (March 25): Prince Charles has caught the virus, confirmed Clarence House, his official residence in London, UK.

The Prince of Wales, 71, was tested positive for COVID-19, reported BBC News today. However, other than showing mild symptoms of the disease, he “remains in good health", said a spokesman.

His wife, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, 72, however, was tested negative.

"In accordance with government and medical advice, the prince and the duchess are now self-isolating at home in Scotland,” read an official statement, adding that the heir apparent to the British throne "has been working at home throughout the last few days".

"The tests were carried out by the NHS in Aberdeenshire, where they met the criteria required for testing,” it stated.

"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."
