LONDON — Prince Charles, the heir to the British throne, 71, has tested positive for coronavirus after "displaying mild symptoms," Clarence House, his official royal residence, said in a statement Wednesday.
The Prince of Wales has tested positive for coronavirus," the statement said, noting aside from the mild symptoms he "otherwise remains in good health and has been working from home throughout the last few days as usual."
The Prince of Wales is self-isolating at a royal estate in Scotland, and his wife Camilla, 72, has tested negative for the virus. It was not immediately clear whether Charles' mother, Queen Elizabeth II or her husband Prince Philip have been tested.
The news comes a week after the queen relocated to Windsor Castle amid the pandemic.
Britain's 93-year-old monarch canceled a number of events "as a sensible precaution" due to the outbreak but as late as last week she was still holding "audiences" with members of the public.
