KEY POINTS

  • Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip are healthy and well while on self-quarantine at Windsor Castle
  • Prince Charles did not infect the Queen with coronavirus during their final engagement
  • Prince Charles tested positive for coronavirus

Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip are both healthy and doing well amid the coronavirus lockdown in the United Kingdom and the entire world.

On Wednesday, Clarence House confirmed that Prince Charles tested positive for coronavirus. Royal fans couldn’t help but worry about him and Her Majesty because they recently saw each other.

But a spokesperson for Buckingham Palace urged the public to not worry about the Queen and Prince Philip because they are both well while on self-quarantine at Windsor Castle.

“Her Majesty The Queen remains in good health. The Queen last saw The Prince of Wales briefly after the investiture on the morning of March 12 and is following all the appropriate advice with regard to her welfare,” the statement said.

Clarence House also shared an update regarding Prince Charles this week.

“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. In accordance with Government and medical advice, the Prince and the Duchess are now self-isolating at home in Scotland. The tests were carried out by the NHS in Aberdeenshire where they met the criteria required for testing,” the statement read.

Even though there is no way to determine how Prince Charles got infected with coronavirus, doctors are convinced that he got it on March 13 during his final royal engagement. And since he and the Queen saw each other on March 12, it is unlikely for Prince William and Prince Harry’s dad to put his mother in danger.

Meanwhile, Prince Philip is reportedly at a higher risk for coronavirus not only because of his age but also because of his pre-existing condition. Just before Christmas Day, the Duke of Edinburgh was rushed to the hospital to seek treatment from his undisclosed condition.

The dad of four was transported to Windsor Castle from Sandringham via a private helicopter to go on self-quarantine with the Queen.
