Prince Charles is expected to make a steady comeback after being infected with Coronavirus because of his healthy lifestyle and nutritional diet.


The vast and fast-moving spread of COVID-19 has had many people panicking, with many trying their best to self-isolate and reduce the spread of the virus.

Following the announcement that the eldest son of Queen Elizabeth has contracted the virus, many speculations have been made as to how he would overcome.

Registered Doctor and nutritionist Dr. Sarah Brewer has assuaged people’s fear, stating that Prince Charles could overcome the viral infection if he followed the necessary rules laid down by health professionals.

Dr. Sarah also expressed that the heir to the throne had a high chance of surviving despite his advanced age because of his healthy lifestyle and diet choice. Discussing this further, she said:

“Should he become unwell, his underlying fitness and excellent medical care should ensure he makes a good recovery.”


Prince Charles, who clocked 71 years last year, was announced to have become infected with the virus when he started displaying mild symptoms, and his test came back positive.

Currently, the heir apparent is in self-isolation with his wife, Camilla. The two are reported to be self-isolating in different parts of the house despite her testing negative for the virus.

It is also possible that he might have gotten it from one of his series of public engagements.


Despite the isolation period, it has been reported that the couple is in high spirits, and Prince Charles has spoken to his kids who are currently distancing themselves from the public.

While it is not sure what the outcome might be because of the advancement in the age of the Prince, medical personnel have speculated that with the right amount of care and caution, those who are older can survive the infection.

Following the announcement, fans have reacted in various ways. Some have wished the Prince well urging him to take all precautionary steps, others have been aloof, stating that he would make a comeback because of his access to medical care.

Prince Charles’ last public engagement was on 12 March when he attended a dinner to aid the Australian bushfire relief. It also happened to be the same day he saw the Queen last.


It is speculated that Charles might have gotten the virus from his interaction with Prince Albert of Monaco, who tested positive a few days back. It is also possible that he might have gotten it from one of his series of public engagements.

For now, those who have been in contact with the Prince and his wife have also been asked to self-isolate and watch how they react in the days that follow to avoid the spread of the virus.

In all, it is safe to believe that the Prince would ride out the storm despite his age and make a full comeback from this viral infection.
