Prince Charles, reportedly, phoned his sons, Prince William and Prince Harry, when he found out his coronavirus diagnosis. The Prince of Wales confirmed he is positive for COVID-19 in a statement released Wednesday, March 25.
According to Fox News, Prince Charles told his sons of his condition by linking them up in a video call. Insiders said that the boys talked and joked with their father and it made Prince Charles really happy that they were together again amid difficult circumstances. The last time all three royals were together was during the Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey on March 9.
Prince Harry flew to Canada to join his wife, Meghan Markle, and son, Archie, on March 12. Since Canada is on a coronavirus lockdown, Prince Harry won't be able to fly back to London to be with the royal family.
The Duke of Sussex is, reportedly, hoping to "return straight away" to London, along with Meghan and Archie, after hearing his father's condition. But his father asked them not to travel anymore and assured his son that he will be alright.
Prince William, on the other hand, is in Anmer Hall, Norfolk with Kate Middleton and their three kids. They left Kensington Palace over the weekend just as Prince Charles and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, traveled to their country home in Scotland.
Incidentally, Camilla was also tested for COVID-19 and her result was negative. Clarence House said in a statement that the Prince of Wales has mild symptoms only and is generally in good health. It is believed that he is still conducting business as usual in his digital home office at Birkhall.
Doctors said that it's not possible to determine where Prince Charles caught the virus. He had several meetings and engagements before the government ordered those above 70 years old to limit their movements.
Prince Charles and Camilla will be staying in Scotland for a few more weeks. Meanwhile, Queen Elizabeth is also isolating in Windsor Castle with Prince Philip. Buckingham Palace said that the Queen remains in good health.
The royal family's public engagements have been trimmed down since the Queen and Prince Charles left London. Prince William and Kate could be expected to step up for the monarch and her heir since the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are not in the vulnerable sector.
