Prince Charles is in good health and no longer in self-isolation following his coronavirus diagnosis, Clarence House has confirmed. In a statement released on Monday, the Prince's household said: "Clarence House has confirmed today that, having consulted with his doctor, The Prince of Wales is now out of self-isolation." Last week we learned the shocking news that the Queen's son had tested positive for COVID-19 and was self-isolating at his Scottish residence, Birkhall.

Charles, 71, is now operating under the current standard government and medical restrictions that apply nationwide. HELLO! understands that his self-isolation lasted seven days in accordance with government and medical guidelines.

Meanwhile, it's understood that the Duchess of Cornwall, 72, whose test came back negative for coronavirus, remains in self-isolation until the end of the week.

Clarence House released an update last Thursday saying that the Prince had been back working at his desk, after displaying "mild symptoms" of the virus. His last public engagements took place on 12 March, when he attended an investiture and a dinner for the Australian Bushfire Appeal.
