Global Disbelief: Prince Charles Tested Positive of COVID-19

On 25th March 2020, fear and shockness ran worldwide when Clarence House announced that the Prince Charles was tested positive for coronavirus, and is now self-isolating from his home on the Balmoral Estate, Scotland together with Camilla. Though Charles was displaying mild symptoms but still remained in good health. According to Queen Elizabeth, she last saw Charles in Buckingham Palace on 12th March and was “in good health”. 

“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 engagements he carried out in his public role during recent weeks.” Clarence House statement reads.

The 72-year-old Duchess of Cornwall has been tested but does not have the virus.

Oh the drama! April 9, 2005 was rather an exciting day or a contentious event for many as Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles tied the knot in a civil ceremony at Windsor Guildhall. The pair then went to St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle to receive an official marriage blessing from the Archbishop of Canterbury.

It was said that Camilla was Prince Charles’ affair when he was still married to Princess Diana back in 1992. Private tapes were released by the press as solid evidence of their affair. Charles and Camilla remained together throughout the following years despite Charles’ divorce with Princess Diana in 1996 and the tragic death of Princess Diana in 1997. Queen Elizabeth strongly disapproves of Charles and Camilla’s relationship all along, but then began to warm up towards Camilla after the recovery of grief. The queen then approved of their relationship.
