Camilla Duchess of Cornwall tests positive for Covid
The Duchess of Cornwall has tested positive for coronavirus, Clarence House has announced.
The 74-year-old has tested positive for the virus just days after the Prince of Wales contracted Covid for the second time.
A Clarence House spokesman said: “Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cornwall has tested positive for Covid-19 and is self-isolating.
“We continue to follow government guidelines.”
Camilla is triple vaccinated, sources said.
The duchess carried out a string of engagements last Thursday – the day Charles tested positive.
Concern for the Queen’s health mounted after the monarch was in direct contact with eldest son Charles two days before he tested positive.
Buckingham Palace said on Thursday that the Queen was not displaying any symptoms, but refused to confirm whether she had tested positive or negative, citing medical privacy.
The 95-year-old spent time with Charles last Tuesday when the prince was carrying out an investiture on her behalf at her Windsor Castle home.
