Prince Charles, 71, has tested positive for the coronavirus. The heir to the British throne’s spokesperson said he is displaying mild symptoms “but otherwise remains in good health.”

Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, are both self-isolating at their Balmoral Estate in Scotland. The Duchess has tested negative for the virus.

“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,” according to a statement released by Clarence House.

Multiple outlets are reporting that Prince Charles last saw Queen Elizabeth, 93, on the morning of March 12, 2020, following an investiture ceremony for public awards at Buckingham Palace in London on March 12, 2020, before the earliest time he would have been infectious.

“Her Majesty The Queen remains in good health,” Buckingham Palace said. “The Queen last saw The Prince of Wales briefly after the investiture on the morning of 12th March and is following all the appropriate advice with regard to her welfare.”

The BBC reported that the Prince has spoken to both the Queen and his sons – the Dukes of Cambridge and Sussex – and is in good spirits.
