Buckingham Palace has said that The Queen “remains in good health” following the news that her eldest son, the Prince f Wales, tested positive for coronavirus.

Her Majesty last saw Prince Charles on 12 March, meaning there is no risk that he passed the highly infection disease onto the monarch.

The palace added that The Queen, who turns 94-years-old next month, “is following all the appropriate advice with regard to her welfare”.

It was announced on Wednesday morning that the 71-year-old heir to the throne is displaying mild symptoms of COVID-19, “but otherwise remains in good health”.

The Duchess of Cornwall has also been tested for the virus, with the test coming back as negative.

Both Charles and Camilla are now isolating at Balmoral in Scotland.
