The coronavirus truly isn’t picky about who infects and the Royal Family are no exception. According to “The Guardian,” Clarence House revealed that Prince Charles had tested positive for the coronavirus.
The Prince of Wales, 71, was said to be displaying mild symptoms of COVID-19 “but otherwise remains in good health.” A spokesman for Clarence House also explained that Duchess Camilla, 72, had also been tested but was found to be negative.
As per Government and medical advice, the royal couple is now self-isolating at home in Scotland. The Cornwall’s were tested by NHS in Aberdeenshire.

They underwent testing after it was found that they both met the criteria required for testing. Unfortunately, it was possible for medical professionals to figure out where Charles caught the virus.
In recent weeks, he’s carried out a vast number of engagements in public. In the last two weeks, the Duke has given a speech at a dinner in aid of the Australian bushfires.
He also spoke at his own Prince's Trust award in London. In an effort to keep from infecting other people, the Prince "has been working at home throughout the last few days."
The World Health Organization (WHO) says the incubation period for the coronavirus can be as long as 14 days. However, in some cases, it is generally about 5 or 6 days.
At the moment, it isn’t yet clear when Prince Charles first started displaying symptoms. Charles met up with Prince Albert, Monaco's head of state, nine days before Albert revealed he had the virus.
The Duke of Cornwall and Albert met on March 10, 2020, at a WaterAid event in London. At the event, Charles gave a speech.
His COVID-19 diagnosis makes him the most high-profile patient in the UK. Other celebrities have also come out to reveal their own positive diagnosis for the coronavirus.
“The Bachelor” star Colton Underwood, 28, and “Watch What Happens Live” host Andy Cohen, are two people who’ve tested positive. Cohen got his test results on Friday after self-quarantining for a few days.
Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson have also contracted the virus. They’re both in Australia where they are now out of hospital and self-isolating at a rented home.
Olga Kurylenko, the star of 2008’s James Bond film “Quantum of Solace,” Idris Elba, and his wife Sabrina Dhowre have also gotten positive tests.
