Queen ‘Not Displaying Symptoms’, Prince Charles Tested Positive


Prince Charles, who has tested positive for Covid for the second time, met recently with the Queen but the monarch not displaying symptoms, says an article published in The Guardian.

Mild symptoms

“The Prince of Wales has tested positive for Covid-19 and is now self-isolating,” Clarence House said, adding he had cancelled his planned engagements for Thursday.

“HRH is deeply disappointed not to be able to attend today’s events in Winchester and will look to reschedule his visit as soon as possible.”

Charles, 73, who said in December both he and his wife Camilla had received their booster shots, first tested positive for Covid in March 2020 when he said he had been “lucky” to have suffered only mild symptoms. He spent seven days in self-isolation at his Birkhall home in Scotland before resuming his duties.

On Wednesday, he attended a reception for the British Asian Trust at the British Museum with Camilla, where the other guests included the chancellor Rishi Sunak, the home secretary Priti Patel and the health secretary Sajid Javid.

Queen displaying no symptoms

The Prince of Wales, who has Covid for the second time, met the Queen recently but the monarch is not displaying any symptoms, a palace source has told the PA news agency.

It is not known when exactly the prince met with the Queen. But he held an investiture on Tuesday at Windsor Castle, where the monarch is currently staying. People who develop coronavirus symptoms are asked to notify those they have been in contact with in the previous 48 hours.

The prince took a routine test and is not thought to be showing symptoms.

Fully vaccinated

Charles usually greets his mother in public with both a kiss on the hand and a kiss on the cheek.

The Queen is understood to be fully vaccinated so will not need to self-isolate, unless she tests positive.

But she will be advised to take rapid lateral flow tests, one a day for seven days.

Downing Street said Boris Johnson hopes the Prince of Wales will make a swift recovery after he tested positive for Covid-19.

A No 10 spokesman said: “The prime minister would like to wish the Prince of Wales a speedy recovery.”
