The COVID-19 has not spared even the British royal family as Prince Charles has tested positive for the coronavirus.

The Prince of Wales has displayed moderate signs but stays in excellent condition and operates from home.

For now on, it is unknown from where the prince caught the infection, although it is known that he might have acquired it owing to the large amount of public engagements that he has been carrying out during the past few weeks.
