On Wednesday March 25, Clarence House announced disturbing news: Prince Charles tested positive for coronavirus. The father of princes William and Harry immediately warned them.
It was an announcement that the Crown feared. Wednesday, March 25, Clarence House had yet to announce: Prince Charles tested positive for coronavirus. In a statement, his spokesperson explained that the Duke of Cornwall "had mild symptoms but is in good health and has worked as usual at home for the past few days". Alongside Camilla Parker Bowles, uncontaminated by Covid-19, the son ofElizabeth II is completely isolated, confined to their home in Burnham, on the Balmoral estate in Scotland. Before the information is published in the media, the prince Charles took care to keep his family informed. And in particular his two sons, the princes William and Harry. According to informationHola, the Duke of Sussex and the Duke of Cambridge learned the news over the phone from their father.
What reassure them a little, while they too are confined, like all members of the British royal family. However, since the coronavirus pandemic reached England, Prince Harry had been very worried. Installed in Canada with Meghan Markle and little Archie, the Duke of Sussex even called his father, the prince Charles, and her grandmother, the queen Elizabeth II to ask them to "stay safe and take extra precautions", as reported The Mirror. These recommendations are those that the Duke of Cornwall tried to follow before being tested positive. Besides, it's impossible to know exactly how he was infected, even if his interview with Albert II on March 10 in London could be the cause.
Prince Charles is confined to Scotland
"It is not possible to know from whom the prince caught the virus because of the high number of engagements which he carried out in his public role during the last weeks", said the entourage of the prince Charles in its press release. As for his wife, she "has also been tested but does not have the virus". In Scotland, the couple is confined and "in accordance with the advice of the government and doctors, the prince and the duchess are now self-isolated at home". Grandfather of George, Charlotte, Louis and Archie is the first member of the British royal family to test positive for COVID-19. But the Crown is reassuring.
