In a statement released by the Clarence House confirms that the Prince displayed mild symptoms on Sunday and was further tested on Monday. Meanwhile, he remains in good health and has been in self-isolation with the Duchess of Cornwell who tests negative at home in Scotland.

The prince’s last public engagement was on 12 March, when he attended a Mansion House dinner hosted by William Russell, Lord Mayor of the City of London, and George Brandis, the High Commissioner for Australia, in aid of the Australian bushfire relief and recovery effort.
Latest update from the Department of Health and Social Care figures, there are now more than 8,000 confirmed cases of coronavirus in the UK although the actual number cases is likely to be far higher and some 422 of those patients have died.
