The Duchess of Cornwall has reportedly left self-isolation after her husband, Prince Charles, tested positive for coronavirus.

Camilla, 72, tested negative for the disease, but was following government guidelines on self-isolation for those who are in the same household as someone who does have symptoms.

She entered self-isolation separately to Prince Charles 14 days ago and a source has now said she has been able to leave.

The couple were self-isolating separately at their home in Balmoral, Birkhall.

Charles, 71, was confirmed to have contracted COVID-19 two weeks ago, but the royal said he only suffered mild symptoms.

Camilla’s former husband Andrew Parker-Bowles also suffered with symptoms of coronavirus, raising more concerns for members of the Royal Family who were with him at the Cheltenham Festival in early March.

However there are no more reports of any more Royal Family members having contracted coronavirus.

Charles and Camilla’s reunion comes days before their 15th wedding anniversary.

Camilla’s mother-in-law, the Queen, gave a rare address on Sunday evening, thanking NHS and essential workers for keeping the country going through the coronavirus pandemic.

Prince Charles, who spoke of the “strange, frustrating and often distressing” of isolation, was able to work throughout his time in self-isolation and went onto open the new NHS Nightingale field hospital via videolink on Friday.

While in isolation, Camilla shared a message with victims of domestic abuse.

She said: “This is a hard time for everyone, as we are all asked to stay at home to stay safe. But for some of you it is even harder, because home is not a safe place.

“I can only imagine that being asked to stay there could feel very isolating and frightening for you and your family.

“If this is your situation, or you are worried about someone else, I want you to know that you are not alone.”

Clarence House shared her words on social media along with numbers for charities who can help.
