Prince Charles is out of self-isolation after recovering from Covid-19

The 71-year-old heir is in “good health” after being diagnosed with a mild form of the virus last week.

Prince Charles is out of self-isolation after recovering from Covid-19, a royal aide has confirmed.
The 71-year-old, who was diagnosed with a mild form of the virus last week, is in "good health" after spending seven days in isolation at his Birkhall on the Balmoral Estate in Scotland.
While his wife Duchess Camilla has tested negative for the illness, she is required to continue self-isolation for another week, as symptoms can take up to 14 days to appear.
"Clarence House has confirmed today that, having consulted with his doctor, the Prince of Wales is now out of self-isolation," a spokesperson confirmed to the Daily Mail.

News that the heir to the throne had contracted the virus emerged last week also sparking fears about The Queen's health, having had contact with his mother on March 12.
Buckingham Palace was quick to issue a statement reassuring the public that the 93-year-old monarch "remains in good health" and "is following all the appropriate advice with regard to her welfare."
She is currently in self-isolation with Prince Philip at Windsor Castle, travelling to the Estate a week earlier than planned as a precautionary measure.
Members of the Royal Family have been incredibly vocal about the current pandemic, with the Queen, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Duke and Duchess of Sussex all sharing messages of support and solidarity.
As well as sharing resources to help support mental health and wellbeing, William and Catherine also participated in the nation-wide #ClapForCarers, posting an adorable clip of their three children applauding the tireless work of NHS staff and volunteers working on the frontline of the crisis.

Prince Edward's wife the Countess of Wessex has also taken time to share resources for parents at home with young children in isolation, reaching out to followers on the official Royal Family social media accounts acknowledging that "for parents and carers, it can be a daunting time to help our children and young people through this period of uncertainty, but please don't feel alone.
"Make use of the resources out there and the fantastic digital communities that are sharing them and supporting them. Stay safe and thinking of you all."
The Duchess of Cornwall, a passionate advocate for victims of domestic violence, has also taken the time to acknowledge that sadly, for some, home is not the safe place many of us experience it as.

In a social media post last week the duchess wrote: "This is a hard time for everyone, as we are all asked to stay at home to stay safe. But for some of you it is even harder, because home is not a safe place.
"I can only imagine that being asked to stay there could feel very isolating and frightening for you and your family."
She continues, "It may mean spending more time with the person who is harming you. If this is your situation, or you are worried about someone else, I want you to know that you are not alone. Even if you cannot leave your home, you can call the National Domestic Abuse Helpline or contact one of the domestic abuse charities.
"Please stay safe and get help."
