But, with him being a member of one of the most prestigious families in the world, many are wondering exactly what this could mean for his mother, the Queen of England.
Well, now a doctor has revealed whether Charles could have passed on the virus to his elderly mother …
The history of the royal family is an important part of British culture.
The Brits are extremely proud that Queen Elizabeth is the longest-ruling monarch of the United Kingdom. Since her coronation on February 6th, 1952, she surpassed Queen Victoria’s old record of sixty-three years on the throne in 2015.
During WWII, she and her sister, Princess Margaret, were evacuated to Windsor to keep them safely out of London.
While there, Elizabeth made her first public appearance by way of radio broadcast. She famously said, “that in the end, all will be well; for God will care for us and give us victory and peace.”
Here she is with her parents, sister, and the then Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Winston Churchill. Her good relationship with the public made way for the acceptance of Prince Phillip.
Elizabeth’s father appointed her colonel-in-chief of the Grenadier Guards and she made her first public appearances inspecting her troops.
Elizabeth, the King’s first-born, automatically became the Queen of England.
And this will be the case for Prince Charles with the current Queen unfortunately passes.
She was crowned at Westminster Abbey at the meager age of twenty-seven. Charles was present at his mother’s crowning; He was aged 4 at the time.
Interestingly, Elizabeth’s was the first coronation to be shown on television.
She wasn’t ruling totally alone, though because Prince Phillip was always by her side.
Elizabeth married Phillip Mountbatten (a distant relative of hers) on November 20th, 1947, when she was just twenty-one.
She’d met Philip aged thirteen and the 2 quickly became totally smitten.
However, he was an important part of her life.
Queen Elizabeth was known for being more reserved and thoughtful, while Philip always had a reputation for being a bit bold and brash, and he has always had something of a mixed reputation in high society.
Soon after their marriage, they were required to take the last name of Windsor, which caused tension between the pair. There have also been numerous public scandals, including rumors of Philip’s infidelity.
But to this very day, the couple remains happily married.
Their first child, Charles, was born in 1948, and is pictured of the left. Their second child, Anne, soon followed in 1950.
Queen Elizabeth rule the United Kingdom with her family over the years, and over time, all of them have won over the public, including Prince Charles’ father.
The ninety-eight-year-old has been battling several health problems over the past few years which have gotten particularly bad in the past few months.
Having previously dealt with such things as a blocked coronary artery and a bladder infection just days before his 92nd birthday, Prince Philip underwent exploratory abdominal surgery which he recovered from.
But soon after, he fell victim to another health issue which involved a hip replacement surgery and since then, he has been on a tragically rocky path.
Prince Charles, being the eldest out of Queen Elizabeth’s children, is next in line to the throne, and will one day become the King of England.
He has already taken over a lot of the royal duties since his father’s retirement.
Previously, he had already been doing a lot on behalf of his parents but 2015 marked the year when he took on a heavier responsibility.
According to his website “for over forty years His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales has been a leader in identifying charitable need and setting up and driving forward charities to meet it.”
“The Prince of Wales carries out dozens of engagements every year in support of his charities. Collectively The Prince of Wales’s charities raise more than £100 million annually to support The Prince of Wales’s charitable work in the UK and overseas.”
During this global pandemic wherein he would have wanted to continue his hard work, Prince Charles has tested positive for the coronavirus.
A spokesman said that both the prince and his wife, Camilla, have been tested and only Charles’ results came out positive.
However, both of them are currently in self-isolation.
“In accordance with government and medical advice, the prince and the duchess are now self-isolating at home in Scotland. The tests were carried out by the NHS in Aberdeenshire, where they met the criteria required for testing. It is not possible to ascertain from whom the prince caught the virus owing to the high number of engagements he carried out in his public role during recent weeks.”
Many can’t help but question one thing.
It’s no secret that the royal family have access to some of the best healthcare in the world, so the fact that the heir to the throne has caught the virus is nothing short of scandalous.
Well, footage of the Prince attending a red carpet event a couple of weeks ago has resurfaced, and it could explain everything.
A butler opens the door for him, and he emerges.
So far, so good, right?
He automatically goes to shake the hand of the suited man stood waiting for him which, in the current self-isolation climate, is a big no-no.
And hastily pulls his hand back with an awkward laugh.
However, though he didn’t directly shake hands on this occasion, many have speculated that his warm and welcoming body language may be the reason behind his diagnosis.
So he may have been struggling with the new social-distancing rules enforced in the fight against further contamination.
We can only wish Prince Charles a speedy recovery.
What could Charles’ coronavirus diagnosis mean for his mom?
Meaning she falls into the higher risk category for those who contract the virus.
Charles and the Queen did not cross paths during the period he was contagious – meaning she cannot have caught it from him.
We at least know it won’t have been from Charles.
