Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, has tested positive for the coronavirus a few days after her husband Prince Charles tested positive for the coronavirus, their London office said Monday.
Camilla, 74, is in self-isolation, a Clarence House spokesperson said after announcing Thursday that Charles had tested positive and was in self-isolation.
This raised concerns about whether the heir to the British throne could have passed the virus on to his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, whom he had met two days earlier.
Charles previously tested positive in March 2020 and spent a week in self-isolation at Queen’s Balmoral estate in Scotland.
Both Charles and Camilla have been given booster shots and have urged the public to do the same.
Camilla’s last official appointments were last Thursday. She visited a sexual assault clinic, opened a community kitchen and visited a charity that works with crime victims.
The Queen marks 70 years on the throne. She announced this month that she hoped Camilla would be known as Queen Consort when Charles becomes king, settling a long debate over her future title.
