The 71-year-old Prince of Wales was diagnosed with the infectious disease, according to a statement released by Clarence House.

Amid this, the British government has said that it will open a 4,000-bed field hospital at a London exhibition centre as part of its plans to treat coronavirus cases. We haven't often been offered a look inside the private home, but royal fans did get a rare glimpse inside Birkhall when Charles filmed a BBC documentary in 2018 called Prince, Son and Heir: Charles at 70.

Prince Charles reportedly last saw the 93-year-old monarch on the morning of 12 March following an investiture, which is before the earliest time he would have been infectious.

The queen also canceled engagements and left London for an extended stay at Windsor Castle last week after the United Kingdom government announced that people over the age of 70 and those in high risk categories, needed to limit their interactions with friends and family to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

First, it was Prince Albert of Monaco, and now it's Prince Charles.

The spokesman said it was impossible to say where he caught it from because of the large number of public engagements he has carried out in "recent weeks".

Following the Prince of Wales' diagnosis, Buckingham Palace confirmed: "Her Majesty The Queen remains in good health".

The 93-year-old moved from her London Buckingham Palace to Windsor Castle on March 19th and was photographed being driven out of the Palace with a dog sitting besides her in the vehicle.

"My parents live in rural NE Scotland", Adam Ramsay, editor of Open Democracy, a website dedicated to social and political issues, said on Twitter. On Monday evening, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced a complete lockdown of the country, much like the one announced by PM Narendra Modi in India on Tuesday evening.

Royal experts believed William would have to take on a more significant role in the monarchy in the weeks to come, especially if someone contracted the virus.

"The Duke has been up in Sandringham, he has not seen any of his family". The tests were carried out by the NHS in Aberdeenshire.
