Prince Charles out of self-isolation and in 'good health' after testing positive

Prince Charles is now out of self-isolation after testing positive for the coronavirus.

The 71 year-old Prince of Wales has spent the last seven days self-isolating in Scotland after displaying mild symptoms of the virus. 

A Palace official confirmed the prince is now in "good health" and following government guidelines.

"Clarence House has confirmed today that, having consulted with his doctor, The Prince of Wales is now out of self-isolation,"  said a spokesman.

He has been in quarantine at his Birkhall home on the Balmoral estate with the Duchess of Cornwall who tested negative but will continue to self-isolate until the end of the week. 

Government guidelines advises that those with symptoms should self-isolate for a week and that everyone living in the household should then self-isolate for two weeks.
