London: Prince Charles has contracted the novel coronavirus. His office on Wednesday confirmed that the Prince of Wales had tested positive for the killer virus.
He had been experiencing mild symptoms, “but otherwise remains in good health,” the statement added.
The 71-year-old is the first Royal Family member to be diagnosed with Covid-19, and he falls in the high-risk bracket given his age.
Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall had earlier moved to Balmoral in Scotland in a bid to protect themselves against the coronavirus.
