Prince Charles of England infected with coronavirus

Prince Charles of England, heir to the throne currently held by his mother, Elizabeth II, has tested positive for coronavirus, the British Royal House reported on Wednesday.

The 71-year-old Prince of Wales has “mild symptoms” but “is otherwise in good condition and working from home these past few days as usual,” reads the official note. His wife, the Duchess of Cornwall, has tested negative and they are both isolated at their Scottish residence.

“It is not possible to be sure where the prince contracted the virus, given the large number of commitments he has had for his public work in recent weeks,” explained the Royal House.

The Royal House has also clarified that the 93-year-old queen is in good condition. The last time he saw his first-born son was March 12, the last day the Prince of Wales had a public act, according to sources quoted by the BBC.

The coronavirus outbreak has left more than 8,000 cases and at least 422 deaths in the United Kingdom, where this week Prime Minister Boris Johnson has decreed the total confinement of the population.

The pandemic has prompted the British Royal House to modify its schedule, canceling parties and the state visit it was planning to offer in spring to the Emperor of Japan. The queen has also advanced this year her usual trip to Windsor Castle for Easter.
