Prince Albert II of Monaco is coming out of self-isolation as he appears to have recovered from his coronavirus diagnosis. 


According to a recent report from People Magazine, the Prince ended his isolation period on Monday. He explained to the news medium that he feels fine, although he has a cough.

After the Prince consulted some of his medical experts, they assured him that all his symptoms would eventually wear off. He also added that his experts have advised that he should stay away from loved ones for another 24 hours.

Prince Albert also said that he would be taking things easier for now, as he has reduced his responsibilities for his health’s sake.

The 62-year-old royal tested positive for the novel coronavirus in the middle of last month. At the time, he tested anonymously at Monaco’s Princess Grace Hospital Center.

When his diagnosis came through, he immediately went into isolation, although he confirmed that he was feeling pretty okay.

The Prince was in charge of France’s task force efforts, and it’s not much of a surprise that he contracted the disease he’s been working to eradicate.

At the time, he explained that he could have gotten it anywhere, so the royal wasn’t overly concerned about that.

Albert has continued to share updates about his case, explaining on March 29 that he just had a mild cough and a slight fever.


He also thanked the millions of people who have sent him messages since news of his diagnosis came out. Now that he’s fine, he should be reuniting with his wife, Charlene, and children — Jacques and Gabriella. 

The Prince also took time out to address rumors that he’s the cause of Prince Charles’ coronavirus case.

While the two men attended a meeting in London early in March, Prince Albert confirmed that they never shook hands.


Prince Albert added that while the meeting did happen, he sat at the far end of the table. Prince Charles was on the other end, so they didn’t have any physical contact. 

He also pointed out that several other people attended the meeting, and Prince Charles himself attended to some other responsibilities afterward. So, the latter could have contracted it from a litany of other places.
