Prince Charles was discussing with his sons Prince William and Prince Harry about his positive coronavirus diagnosis. The heir to the throne was also in touch with his mother, Queen Elizabeth. She is self-isolating herself at Windsor Castle since last week.
Charles was seen last with his sons William and Harry in public on March 9. At the event of annual Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey. The ceremony marks Harry and wife Meghan Markle’s last official royal event in the U.K… Now they officially step down as senior working royals on March 31.
Charles and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall were self-isolating at Birkhall. It is their home on Queen Elizabeth’s Balmoral estate in Scotland. Knowing Charles’s positive diagnosis on Tuesday, Camilla moves to another area of the estate to self-isolate.
“Both of them remain in good spirits,” a palace source tells. “There is a sense of keeping calm and carrying on. The duchess is showing concern for him but she is aware of his good spirits. And therefore is keeping a close eye on him and mindful of her situation. She is upbeat.”
Last week, Queen Elizabeth left her Buckingham Palace in London for Windsor Castle amid the coronavirus outbreak. There, she was with her husband Prince Philip. He is staying on the couple’s Sandringham estate since late last year following his hospitalization.

He says: “Whenever and wherever adversity strikes, the people of the U.K. have a unique ability to pull together. The way that local communities support those affected shows the very best of our values and human nature”.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex writes out about the need to support each other in a post on Instagram.
“These are uncertain times. And now, more than ever, we need each other. We need each other for truth, for support, and to feel less alone during a time that can honestly feel quite scary,” they wrote. “There are so many around the world who need support right now, who are working tirelessly to respond to this crisis behind the scenes, on the frontline, or at home. Our willingness, as a people, to step up in the face of what we are all experiencing with COVID-19 is awe-inspiring. This moment is as true a testament there is to the human spirit.”
