Queen Elizabeth is currently reportedly being tested after her son, Prince Charles, tested positive for Covid-19 on Thursday (10/2) morning local time. A royal source said the 95-year-old Queen did meet Charles recently.
He added the Queen is currently symptom-free. The matter will be closely examined, but no regular updates on the Queen’s health will be released, the source said.
Prince Charles last met with his mother two days before being diagnosed with positive. On Tuesday (8/2), the royal heir was at Windsor Castle, where the Queen now resides, to present the coronation award.
After testing positive for Covid-19, Prince Charles immediately went into isolation. This is the second time Charles has tested positive. At the beginning of the March 2020 pandemic, he tested positive for a viral disease originating from Wuhan City, China, for the first time.
According to People, Clarence House made the announcement on behalf of the royal heir Thursday morning. “This morning the Prince of Wales has tested positive for Covid-19 and is now self-isolating,” the statement said. “HRH is very disappointed to be unable to attend today’s event in Winchester and will reschedule his visit as soon as possible.”
Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall have received their first dose of Covid-19 vaccination in February 2021. Charles verified in December 2021 he and Camilla had received a booster dose. The statement comes after Queen Elizabeth’s recent statement that it is her wish that her 74-year-old daughter-in-law be recognized as Empress when her son ascends the throne one day.
