The Prince of Wales has tested positive for coronavirus.

Clarence House say Prince Charles, 71, is displaying mild symptoms “but otherwise remains in good health”.

The Duchess of Cornwall, 72, has also been tested but does not have the virus.

An official statement read: “In accordance with government and medical advice, the prince and the duchess are now self-isolating at home in Scotland.

“The tests were carried out by the NHS in Aberdeenshire, where they met the criteria required for testing.

“It is not possible to ascertain from whom the prince caught the virus owing to the high number of engagements he carried out in his public role during recent weeks.”

Prince Charles recently visited Cornwall earlier this month, touring the Celtic Sheepskin & Co warehouse, visiting Nansledan and joining a a workshop hosted by Surfers Against Sewage.
