Representatives of the princely couple formed by Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, communicated on Monday February 14 the positive status of Carmilla, 74, at Covid-19. On February 10, it was Prince Charles who knew this verdict. A few days later, his companion therefore in turn contracted the coronavirus. For now and despite concerns after the announcement about the health of Prince Charles, 73, Queen Elizabeth II still shows no symptoms of Covid-19 according to a source at Buckingham Palace and therefore seems to have been spared.
The Duchess of Cornwall, who received her three doses of vaccine – just like Prince Charles and Queen Elizabeth II – has been isolated since the return of her positive Covid-19 test. Also according to the services of the Clarence House couple, “we continue to follow the recommendations of the government”. Camilla Parker Bowles had recently been talked about for another much more gratifying reason. Indeed on the eve of her 70 years of reign, celebrated by a platinum jubilee, the sovereign announced that she wanted her daughter-in-law Camilla to become queen consort. This means that when Prince Charles rises to power and becomes king, the status of the current Duchess of Cornwall will no longer be up for debate.
The princely couple placed in isolation
As a reminder, Prince Charles had already caught Covid-19 in March 2020. He had, at the time, contracted mild symptoms and therefore continued to work after being isolated. The princely couple received their first dose of vaccine in February 2021 and the second contamination of the prince does not seem, for the moment, to have brought him more serious symptoms than the first. In isolation for a few more days, Prince Charles will now be able to keep company with Camilla who, after being tested negative for Covid-19 on January 10, will still not have escaped.
