Prince Charles of England, heir to the throne currently held by his mother, Elizabeth II, has tested positive for coronavirus, the British Royal Household reported on Wednesday. The 71-year-old Prince of Wales has «mild symptoms,» but «otherwise he is in good condition and working from home in these last days as usual,» the official note reads. His wife, the Duchess of Cornwall, has tested negatives and both are isolated in their Scottish residence.» It is not possible to as sure where the prince contracted the virus, given the large number of commitments he has had for his public work in recent weeks,» said the Royal Household, according to the BBC public broadcaster. The coronavirus outbreak has left more than 8,000 cases and at least 422 deaths in the UK, where this week Prime Minister Boris Johnson has decreed total population confinement. The pandemic has led the British Royal Household to change its agenda, cancelling parties and the state visit it planned to offer the emperor of Japan in the spring. The Queen has also advanced her usual trip to Windsor Castle for Easter this year.
