Just like everyone around the world, the royal family is also susceptible to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and one member has, sadly, tested positive. It was confirmed on Wednesday, March 25, that Prince Charles has coronavirus and The Palace addressed the situation head-on. On top of that, Clarence House shared a hopeful update on how Prince Charles is doing and revealed he and wife, Camilla, are self-isolating in Scotland.
Prince Charles has "been displaying mild symptoms but otherwise remains in good health," the statement from Clarence House read, adding that the 71-year-old "has been working from home."
Camilla, The Duchess of Cornwall, was also tested on Monday with Prince Charles, but she "does not have the virus," Clarence House confirms.
The Palace concluded the statement:

Palace officials told The New York Times that Prince Charles had last seen his mom, Queen Elizabeth II, on Thursday, March 12. Doctors estimate the first day Prince Charles "could have been infectious with the virus" was the day after he saw The Queen, The New York Times added.
A Palace spokesperson confirmed: “Her Majesty the queen remains in good health.”
The royal family has been taking precautions just like the rest of the world during the ongoing coronavirus crisis. On March 20, Buckingham Palace indefinitely suspended the annual Changing of the Guard ceremony.
Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan raised awareness about emotional well-being during this challenging time in a statement posted to their Instagram page on March 21.

With everything going on, it’s a lot to take in. Many of us may feel confused. Or alone, or anxious or scared…and in isolation, some of us may just feel bored, or that you don’t know what to do with yourself without your normal routine. It’s perfectly normal to be feeling any of these things. Our emotional well-being is challenged everyday whether we realise it or not, but our lives are usually filled with distractions. Now with constantly changing COVID coverage, we are all adjusting to this new normal and the feelings that come with it. But here’s the good thing (because right now we need to hear good things, right?): Yes, there is isolation and physical distancing, but there doesn’t have to be loneliness. There are resources that can help us all through this process, and ways that YOU can become one of those resources. @crisistextline @giveusashoutinsta @kidshelpphone and CTL Ireland are organisations that need new volunteers now more than ever and have an open door for you to get the support you need. • – If you’re home and feeling bored, you can digitally train to be a counselor and HELP someone who really needs your support! What an amazing way to use this time • – If you feel alone, overwhelmed, depressed, or anxious, you can text one of these lines and talk it through. • – If you are in an abusive relationship and now find yourself in isolation with your abuser, these counselors are there for you. You do not need to suffer in silence. And for those of you who don’t feel comfortable texting with a stranger, reach out to your friends, family and colleagues. Phone calls and video conferencing are such a great way to feel more connected – ask if they’re okay, tell them how you’re (actually) feeling, and use this time to really listen for the answer. If there is someone you know and are worried about, your text may be the thing that saves their life.
The Queen also shared:
Well wishes are being sent to Prince Charles for a quick and full recovery.
