UPDATE: Days after her husband Prince Charles tested positive for coronavirus, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, has also been diagnosed with COVID-19.

"Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cornwall has tested positive for COVID-19 and is self-isolating," Clarence House confirmed in a statement on Monday, Feb 14. "We continue to follow government guidelines."


Prince Charles is currently in self-isolation after testing positive for coronavirus for a second time.
In a statement released from Clarence House on Feb. 10, the Prince of Wales was confirmed to be "deeply disappointed" that he would have to miss a scheduled visit in Winchester, England amid his diagnosis.
"This morning, The Prince of Wales has tested positive for COVID-19 and is now self-isolating," the statement read, adding that the future king intends to reschedule his trip "as soon as possible."
The 73-year-old was among the first notable names to test positive for COVID-19 in March 2020. At the time, he was confirmed to have "mild symptoms" but continued to work from home, at his and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall's residence in Scotland.
The news of Prince Charles' health comes just hours after he and his wife attended a reception celebrating charity work at London's British Museum. Details on her condition are not known at this time.

"The Queen's devotion to the welfare of all her people inspires still greater admiration with each passing year." 

He continued, "We are deeply conscious of the honor represented by my mother's wish. As we have sought together to serve and support Her Majesty and the people of our communities, my darling wife has been my own steadfast support throughout."
