Queen's heir self isolating in Scotland after diagnosis

The Prince of Wales has tested positive for the novel coronavirus, his office has confirmed, but remains in good health.

Clarence House said Prince Charles, 71, who is Queen Elizabeth's oldest child and heir to the British throne, was diagnosed with the COVID-19 disease in Scotland, where he is now self-isolating.

"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," an official statement said.

The Duchess of Cornwall has also been tested but does not have the virus.

It is currently unclear where he may have picked up the virus "owing to the high number of engagements he carried out in his public role during recent weeks".
