There are concerns for Queen Elizabeth II after 71-year-old Prince Charles tested positive for Covid-19.
Today Clarence House said in a statement that Prince Charles has been tested and confirmed to have Covid-19.
Although the timeline is not certain, we know the Prince of Wales may have contracted Covid-19 when meeting with Prince Albert of Monaco on March 10.
Both Princes were in high level meetings and seen publicly together at a function.
Here’s what the ITV Royal Correspondent said:
Albert also later tested positive for Covid-19, confirmed on the 18th of March.
Prince Charles’s office says: “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.”
On March 12th, according to Buckingham Palace, the Prince of Wales met with the Queen.
Buckingham Palace after Prince Charles news #coronavirus:
“The Queen remains in good health. The Queen last saw The Prince of Wales briefly on the morning of 12 March and is following all the appropriate advice with regard to her welfare.” We will not be commenting further.”
Sky News UK reported that according to medical advice, Prince Charles was probably contagious from March 13. Although we don’t really know given the uncertainty around the virus and how contagious it can be and at what stages.
According to Vanity Fair, the Queen has been isolated from contacts for some time, with reports saying she has been isolated since at least March 18th – not before her meeting with Charles on March 12th.
Fingers crossed and all the hope in the world that the 93 year old Monarch did not come into a dose of the virus. God Save the Queen.
