Britain's Prince Charles, the heir to the throne, has tested positive for the coronavirus, Buckingham Palace announced Wednesday.
The palace said the prince, 71, had only mild symptoms and was otherwise in good health.
The future British king was self-isolating at Balmoral Castle in Scotland, with his wife, Camilla.
The prince’s official London residence, Clarence House, issued a statement saying it was impossible to ascertain where he caught the virus, owing to the high number of engagements he carried out in his public role during recent weeks.
Prince Charles last met his mother, Queen Elizabeth, on March 9.
“The cutoff date for contagion has been estimated at the 13 March, and as far as is known, the queen is extremely well,” Royal Family expert Richard Fitzwilliams told VOA.
