Prince Charles has coronavirus and is displaying mild symptoms, a Clarence House spokesman said.

"The Prince of Wales has tested positive for Coronavirus," the spokesman 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. The Duchess of Cornwall has also been tested but does not have the virus. In accordance with Government and medical advice, the Prince and the Duchess are now self-isolating at home in Scotland. The tests were carried out by the NHS in Aberdeenshire where they met the criteria required for testing.

"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."

It is said the Prince seems to be in good health at the moment. 

His wife Camilla, 72, tested negative for the bug, with the couple now self-isolating in Scotland.
