Prince Charles has tested positive for coronavirus, according to a statement from the Buckingham Palace.
The 71-year-old and his wife Camilla, who does not have the virus are currently self-isolating in Scotland, Clarence House said.
The statement revealed that Prince Charles has been displaying mild symptoms but otherwise remains in good health and has been working from home throughout the last few days as usual.
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.
Queen Elizabeth II, 93, and her husband Prince Philip, 98, retired to Windsor Castle, outside London, on March 19.
They brought forward their Easter break by a week because of the coronavirus outbreak. Britain has more than 8,000 confirmed cases of the disease, and 422 people have died.
