British Queen Elizabeth II is reportedly being “closely monitored” after her son, Prince Charles tested positive for the COVID virus just two days after having contact with her, according to People magazine.
According to royal insiders, Charles paid a visit to Windsor Castle on Tuesday to present the Queen with Investiture honors. On Thursday, he was found to be positive for COVID after a blood test.
The Queen, on the other hand, has not yet displayed any signs of illness. While royal sources say the Queen’s status will be “closely observed,” they also say there will be no regular updates issued to the media about it. This is the second time that Prince Charles has acquired the coronavirus; he was previously afflicted by the virus in March of this year.
“The Prince of Wales tested positive for COVID-19 today and has been placed in self-isolation,” Clarence House stated in a statement on Thursday.
He is in good health, according to the statement, and has been working from home as normal for the past three days, it said.
