Prince Charles ends quarantine, said to be 'in good health'

Charles out of isolation

British royal Prince Charles has emerged from self-isolation after a seven day quarantine following his coronavirus diagnosis.

Queen Elizabeth II's heir, 71, confirmed he had tested positive for the virus, Covid-19, last Wednesday after displaying mild symptoms and going into self-isolation.

However, on Monday, officials from his Clarence House residence confirmed he is "in good health" and has been given the all-clear to come out of quarantine.

"Clarence House has confirmed today that, having consulted with his doctor, the Prince of Wales is now out of self-isolation," a royal spokesman told the BBC.

Prince Charles spent his seven days of quarantine at his Birkhall home on the Balmoral estate in Scotland. His wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, 72, was also tested and did not have the virus, but also went into self-isolation.

Representatives Buckingham Palace previously confirmed that Queen Elizabeth last saw her son on 12 March.

According to British newspaper The Sun, a footman, who had been responsible for taking drinks and meals to the Queen, introducing guests, handling messages, and walking her beloved dogs, tested positive for the virus and is now in self-isolation.

Britain's Prime Minister Boris Johnson is running the U.K. government from self-isolation after he also tested positive for the coronavirus last week, with his Health Secretary Matt Hancock another who has caught the potentially deadly bug. His top adviser Dominic Cummings is also self-isolating after displaying symptoms.
