Prince Charles has tested positive for coronavirus, making him the most high-profile patient since the global pandemic began.
He is currently self-isolating at home with mild-symptoms that are not likely to turn serious.
“The Duchess of Cornwall (Camilla) 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.”
“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 added.
Britain has more than 8,000 confirmed cases of the disease, and 422 people have died.
