Prince Charles has ended his period of self-isolation after last week testing positive for coronavirus, Clarence House has said.
The prince, 71, was confirmed to have tested positive for COVID-19 last Tuesday, when he took a test in Aberdeenshire.
He and his wife Camilla, 72, had gone to Scotland on Sunday 22 March, and as he experienced “mild symptoms” they were both tested for the virus.
He was confirmed to have it, but Camilla tested negative.
On Monday, Clarence House said: “Clarence House has confirmed today that, having consulted with his doctor, the Prince of Wales is now out of self-isolation.”
The Duchess of Cornwall will continue to self-isolate until she reaches the 14-day recommendation.
UK government guidelines say those who get symptoms of coronavirus, which can include a fever, a cough and loss of taste and smell, should self-isolate for seven days.
The guidance also states a whole household should isolate for 14 days if one person gets symptoms.
Charles was reported to have been working and in “good spirits” throughout his period of self-isolation, at his desk in Birkhall on the Balmoral estate.
