Prince Charles has tested positive for the COVID-19 coronavirus. The 71-year-old Prince of Wales, heir to the British throne, has "been displaying mild symptoms but otherwise remains in good health," a statement from Clarence House released Wednesday said. His wife, the Duchess of Cornwall, has tested negative for the virus. "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," Clarence House said. Charles has now self-isolated at home in Scotland. He previously canceled royal engagements due to the coronavirus pandemic.
