Clarence House said Charles and Camilla were now self-isolating in Balmoral in Scotland, adding it was “not possible to ascertain from whom the prince caught the virus owing to the high number of engagements he carried out in his public role during recent weeks.”

He last met the Queen on the morning of March 12 and the monarch is said to be in “good health” and following all appropriate health and safety advice.
