The heir to to the British throne, Prince Charles, has tested positive for the coronavirus, although appears to be only exhibiting mild symptoms. He and Camilla are currently self-quarantining at Balmoral, their home in Scotland. (And so far she appears to be negative).
Charles last came in contact with his mother, the Queen, on March 12, so that’s slightly problematic. The Palace hasn’t revealed the Queen’s status … only to say she “remains in good health.”
Now, the scary part … the Palace said, “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.” Translation … Charles interacted with lots of people.
And not to be glib, but this did make me chuckle..
Prince Charles has it? I hope he can remain cooly distant from his family!— Alec Sulkin (@thesulk) March 25, 2020
