Prince Charles has tested positive for the dreaded virus, coronavirus. At 71, he is now considered very high-risk. It remains to be seen what measures the Palace would take with this sad news.
The heir to the throne is reportedly experiencing some mild symptoms but on the larger scheme of things, remains in good health at the moment. The Prince is said to be self-isolating in Scotland with the Duchess of Cornwall, who already tested negative for the virus.
Prince of Wales Has Minor Symptoms
The full, official statement reads, "The Prince of Wales has tested positive for coronavirus. 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."
Moreover, "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 two were tested by the NHS in Aberdeenshire, where they have satisfied the criteria to be tested.
As of the moment, it is unclear where he could have contracted the virus, given the many engagements he carried out for the past weeks.
This, however, means that he had interacted with so many people on these recent weeks, and many could now be at risk of the dreaded virus as well.
Could Queen Elizabeth be one of those he had engagements with?
Queen Elizabeth In Isolation
It can be remembered that just a few days Queen Elizabeth set out of London for Windsor because of the coronavirus panic, Prince Charles and Camilla also left and went to Balmoral.
Prince Charles and Camilla also had postponed their upcoming tour in different countries. The same goes for the Queen. The Queen also re-scheduled most of her engagements in the coming months.
The Queen, even in isolation, is serving as a beacon of hope for the UK. Even in strict self-quarantine, the nation is turning to her for comfort.
The British absolutely love her, so everyone is praying she does not get the scary virus. According to a royal commentator, despite her age, people still want to hear from her in times of national crisis, not just during national celebrations.
Her wisdom, reliability, and consistency can make the British feel comforted even in dire situations such as this.
Now that her own son has contracted the virus, people will surely start praying fervently that the Queen will not.
Meanwhile, before this cruel twist of fate, Prince Philip was the victim of a crazy rumor that he has the virus and has died. However, it was revealed to be untrue and that he is in very good health.
Prayers for the Palace, considering the ages of these well-loved members, are very much encouraged.
The Queen is yet to comment on this sad and alarming news.
