Prince Charles Got COVID Again And THE QUEEN Is Being Monitored Since She Was With Him Recently
Prince Charles is a two-timer! No, not like that (“I beg to differ,” muttered the ghost of Princess Diana). I mean he got COVID for the second time. The first time was way back when the pandemic first began, in March 2020. Today the Clarence House Twitter announced that Charles tested positive for coronavirus this morning and he is currently self-isolating. A royal source tells People that THE QUEEN is being monitored because she met with Charles this week, but so far she isn’t displaying any symptoms. Looks like that cold, no-hugging-or-touching mothering style is finally paying off for the Royals!
The first time Charles got COVID he said he was lucky enough to only suffer mild symptoms, adding that he’d “got away with it quite lightly.” Here’s today’s tweet about his new case of COVID:
This morning The Prince of Wales has tested positive for COVID-19 and is now self-isolating.
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.

The source tells People that Charles last met with his 95-year-old mumsy two days ago. The 73-year-old was at Windsor Castle, where THE QUEEN is currently living, to hand out investiture honors on Tuesday. The insider adds that Buckingham Palace isn’t planning on providing regular updates on THE QUEEN’S health, which hasn’t been great the last few months. Prince Charles isn’t the only royal to recently catch COVID. 81-year-old Queen Margrethe of Denmark and 54-year-old King Felipe of Spain also tested positive for Coronavirus this week.
THE QUEEN, Charles, and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, are all fully vaccinated. Last night Charles and Camilla were out in London attending a reception to celebrate the British Asian Trust at the British Museum. Camilla was also out this morning to open a community kitchen in London.
Speaking of Camilla, it was just a few days ago that THE QUEEN confirmed her “sincere wish” for Camilla to eventually become Queen Consort when Charles is King (shudder). So let’s summarize what’s happened this week: THE QUEEN announces Charles and Camilla will be King and Queen Consort once she passes away. Then, Charles gets himself infected with coronavirus (knowingly?!?) the same week he visits his mother, who’s been suffering from ill-health. It doesn’t take Detective Pikachu to put two and two together…
