Prince Charles has tested positive for coronavirus.

According to Clarence House, the Prince of Wales is displaying mild symptoms "but otherwise remains in good health".

It is thought the eldest son of Queen Elizabeth and next in line to the throne has been working from home throughout the last few days as usual.

In a statement about the 71-year-old's health, Clarence House said: "The Prince of Wales has tested positive for coronavirus.

"He had been displaying mild symptons but otherwise remains in good health and has been working from home throughout the last few days as usual."

Both Prince Charles and his wife Camilla are self-isolating although the Duchess of Cornwall does not have the virus despite sources saying she has been tested.

It is believed they are currently at their Balmoral Estate home in Scotland.

It is not known who the Prince contracted the virus from.

The statement from Clarence House adds: "In accordance with Government and medical advice, the Prince and Ducheess are now self-isolating at home in Scotland.

"The tests were carried out by the NHS in Aberdeenshire where they met the criteria required for testing.

"It is not possible to ascertain from whom the Prince caught the virus owing to the high number of engagemebnts he carried out in his public role during recent weeks."
