Prince Charles Gets Positive Result after Coronavirus Test

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.

Where Charles could've caught the virus

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.

How long is the incubation period

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.

Tonight, The Prince of Wales attended a dinner in aid of the Australian bushfire relief and recovery effort, hosted by The Lord Mayor of the City of London. The Prince was devastated to hear of the bushfires, which began in September and caused the deaths of over 30 people, millions of wildlife and burned more than 12.6 million hectares of land. Tonight’s event is a partnership between the City of London Corporation and the Australian High Commission, with proceeds from the evening going to charities helping on the ground in Australia including @RedCrossAU. The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall are deeply committed to the Australian people and in a message of support recorded earlier this year, The Prince spoke of the “incredibly special and resilient” nation. Their Royal Highnesses have visited Australia many times, most recently in 2018. During his speech, The Prince also said: “At the very worst of times, we saw the very best of Australia – and knowing the Aussies, as I do after fifty-four years, that makes me very proud.” Follow the link in our bio to read The Prince of Wales’s speech from tonight in full. 🇦🇺
