After testing positive for the COVID-19 virus, the Prince of Wales is doing everything possible to take the necessary precautions in order to enhance his quick recovery.


Prince Charles has reportedly significantly reduced the staff working at his home. While he continues to carry out the light duties he can, he will be doing so with slightly fewer people around him to ensure that the virus doesn’t spread.

Like his mother, the Queen of England, Prince Charles has retreated from Buckingham Palace in the wake of the virus. Hee and his wife, Duchess Camilla, are now staying at one of his Scottish estates.

Per a statement from the royal family, Prince Charles contacted the coronavirus last week. After he showed some symptoms, he went in for a check, and his positive diagnosis came back on Monday.

Clarence House, the Prince’s royal resident, gave a recent update on his condition. The resident explained that he is back at work after testing positive for the virus, adding that he is now taking meetings by phone.


He’s staying in Scotland with his wife and six staff members who live with them. The staff members are staying away from them but will be seeing to the Prince’s needs.

Aides have also added that the Prince has gotten hundreds of “get well cards” and is feeling much better. For now, however, he will continue to work and recuperate to the best of his abilities.

The news of the Prince’s positive diagnosis caught the royal family by surprise. As expected, none of them has been as concerned as his wife, Camilla.

The Duchess of Cornwall has been by her husband’s side so far. While she remains deeply worried about him, she’s also staying optimistic and being upbeat about the entire situation.


The Queen has also taken precautions of her own, including retreating to Windsor Castle with her husband, Prince Philip. Reports have also surfaced that Prince Harry and his family could have left their residence in Canada for Los Angeles.

Both royals decided to leave their waterfront home in Vancouver Island after fears increased that the U.S.-Canada border could close due to the virus.

The two of them are now staying in the Hollywood area with their son, Archie. As the reports confirmed, they preferred to be close to their PRs, agents, and their friends.
