Oh no! Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall has tested positive for COVID-19 — just four days after her husband, Prince Charles, contracted the virus.
"Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cornwall has tested positive for COVID-19 and is self-isolating. We continue to follow government guidelines," a spokesperson for Clarence House said in a statement.
Last week, the prince caught the disease, and while out and about, Camilla updated reporters on her husband's condition, saying she was "lucky" to have not gotten sick, and Charles is finding it a "bit tiresome" to have a second bout with the illness.
Additionally, Queen Elizabeth is being monitored since Charles was with her two days before he tested positive.
"This morning The Prince of Wales has tested positive for COVID-19 and is now self-isolating," a tweet read at the time. "HRH is deeply disappointed not to be able to attend today's events in Winchester and will look to reschedule his visit as soon as possible."
Charles tested positive one day after he attended an event, where he was seen mingling and chatting with others.
"Tonight The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall attended a reception to celebrate the work of @thebritishasiantrust, a charity founded by The Prince in 2007 to support disadvantaged communities in South Asia," a message began of the outing. "Held at the British Museum, tonight’s event celebrated the organisation’s accomplishments over the past year. During a speech, The Prince praised the work of @thebritishasiantrust during the COVID-19 pandemic, saying: 'It is fair, I think, to say that it has been when truly tested that the Trust has shown its most outstanding qualities of resilience and commitment to helping people across South Asia. When the pandemic first hit us, the Trust launched an Emergency Appeal to support migrant workers and those most in need across the region. I was delighted to be able to give my own support, together with so many in the diaspora, to help over 150,000 people.'"
Charles got COVID-19 in 2020, and he has been adamant about getting vaccinated during this time.
“To all those who have not yet had the vaccine — or are hesitating before getting a booster — we can only urge you to look at the evidence in our intensive care wards and listen to those who work there," he shared. “We urge everyone to get vaccinated and to take up the booster, as we have done ourselves.”
