Prince Charles is opening up about his experience with coronavirus after being diagnosed with the virus last month. The 71-year-old Prince of Wales experienced “mild symptoms” as a result of the virus, but after seven days of self-isolation, the next in line to the British throne is feeling better and no longer in isolation.
On Wednesday, the father of Prince William and Prince Harry recorded a moving video of himself talking about the ongoing crisis and how people can help.
“Having recently gone through the process of contracting this coronavirus luckily with relatively mild symptoms, I now find myself on the other side of the illness but still in no less a state of social distance and general isolation,” he began. “As we are all learning, this is a strange, frustrating and often distressing experience, when the presence of family and friends is no longer possible and the normal structures of life are suddenly removed.”
Charles is currently still separated from his wife, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, who is remaining in isolation through the end of the week despite not being diagnosed with coronavirus herself.
