Coronavirus-positive Prince Charles last saw The Queen just days before test

A coronavirus-positive Prince Charles last saw The Queen just days before his test for the disease.

Clarence House confirmed in a statement The Prince of Wales, 71, tested positive for coronavirus and is displaying mild symptoms “but otherwise remains in good health”.

He last saw the 93-year-old monarch on the morning of March 12, just a day before the earliest time he would have been infectious, according to his doctor's most conservative estimate.

An insider said was that the prince was contagious on March 13.

A royal source said the Prince of Wales was tested on Monday and got the results on Tuesday.

In response to the Buckingham Palace said: "Her Majesty The Queen remains in good health.

"The Queen last saw The Prince of Wales briefly after the investiture on the morning of 12th March and is following all the appropriate advice with regard to her welfare.''

Queen Elizabeth left London for Windsor Castle on March 19 alongside Prince Phillip, 98.

The Clarence House statement said Charles, 71, was self-isolating at home in Scotland with his wife the Duchess of Cornwall, 72, who does not have the virus.

It is believed Charles is self-isolating away from the rest of the family and has spoken to his sons the Duke of Cambridge and the Duke of Sussex, as well as the Queen.

The statement said: "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.
