The Prince of Wales has tested positive for coronavirus making him the most high-profile patient in the UK. Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, are now in self-quarantine at their home in Scotland.

His press office today said the symptoms he is displaying are only mild, but the Prince of Wales comes into contact with a large number of people in his role as an active member of the royal household.

The Duchess has also been tested for the virus but did not have it, the spokesman said.

Clarence House said 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”.

The Prince has given a speech at a dinner in aid of the Australian bushfires and at his own Prince’s Trust award in London, in the last two weeks.
