The heir to the British throne, Prince Charles, has finally spoken to his sons, Prince Harry and Prince William, about his positive COVID-19 diagnosis. 


From royalty to common folks, no one is safe from coronavirus. As the number of people testing positive for the virus continues to rise, Prince Charles of the United Kingdom recently announced that he has been infected by coronavirus as well. 

After the announcement following his diagnosis, the Prince of Wales has finally shared the news of his positive corona diagnosis with his sons, Prince Harry and Prince William.

The royal also spoke to his mother, Queen Elizabeth, about his diagnosis. The Queen has been self-isolating in the Windsor Castle since last week. 

The last time Charles was out with William and Harry was at the annual Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey on March 9, the event that marked the final royal engagement for Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, before they stepped down as the senior members of the royal family. 



Charles and his wife, Camilla, were in self-isolation at Birkhall in the Queen's Balmoral estate in Scotland. Following Charles' positive corona reports, Camilla moved to a separate area of the estate to self-isolate. 

Meanwhile, a spokesperson from the palace said that the Prince of Wales is displaying mild symptoms of COVID-19 but his health is fairly good.


According to the palace, the last time that Charles saw Queen Elizabeth was on March 12. However, he was in good health back then. 

Regardless, the Queen is now following all the appropriate advice to stay safe and healthy. It is unclear as to how the royal contracted the virus since he had carried out a high number of public engagements. 



Since the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh are both older than 90, special care will be taken to ensure that they remain in their best health amid the pandemic. 

For now, Charles continues to work from home. So far, he has held a number of private meetings with some Duchy of Cornwall individuals and Highgrove. 

Charles is not the only royal who has tested positive for coronavirus. Last week,  Prince Albert of Monaco was also diagnosed with the virus
