Prince Charles is embarking on a thorough recovery after testing positive for the novel coronavirus last week.
The Prince of Wales has been in self-isolation in Scotland with his wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall. But according to a statement from a Clarence House spokesperson, Charles is on the mend. “Clarence House has confirmed today that, having consulted with his doctor, The Prince of Wales is now out of self-isolation,” the statement read.
The heir to the throne displayed “mild symptoms” on March 22, took the test on March 23, and received the positive results on March 24. It’s unclear exactly when or how he contracted the disease.
The Charles is in good health and operating under the current standard government and medical restrictions that apply nationwide in the United Kingdom. The BBC reports that, per government guidelines, anyone showing symptoms should isolate for seven days, while everyone living with that person should isolate for two weeks. Duchess Camilla will remain in self-isolation until the end of the week to ensure she does not showcase any coronavirus symptoms.
As the country continues to combat the global pandemic, other members of the royal family have also continued to follow government advice to help slow the spread of the novel virus. Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip are currently self-quarantining at Windsor Castle, the Cambridges are doing the same at Anmer Hall in Sandringham, and the Sussexes have recently hunkered down in Los Angeles, California.
