The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall have both been quarantined in their Birkhall home in the Balmoral Castle estate.

This follows the news that the heir-to-the-throne has tested positive for coronavirus.

Camilla is currently free of COVID-19, however, she has been isolated in the same household as her husband per the government’s guidelines.

It is understood that despite the couple being in the same location, there is isolation between the two of them to minimise the risk of Camilla catching the virus.

Clarence House announced on Wednesday morning that the Prince of Wales has tested positive for the Coronavirus.

A spokesperson said: “He has been displaying mild symptoms but otherwise remains in good health and has been working from home throughout the last few days as usual.” 

Buckingham Palace also commented on the Queen’s health, saying: “The Queen remains in good health. The Queen last saw The Prince of Wales briefly on the morning of 12 March and is following all the appropriate advice with regard to her welfare.” 

The news comes just days after Albert II, Prince of Monaco tested positive for the coronavirus. The two had recently met in London at the WaterAid charity’s Water and Climate event at Kings Place and shared a table over lunch.
