this virus makes no difference to your bloodline or your bank balance.

poor chap has the virus - his fit and strong, so I expect the best outcome - others he has been in contact over the past last weeks could be anyone from any where across the globe will be self isolating to the max.

Whether you agree with the royal family or not, he was supposedly in close contact with Prince Albert of Monaco, who revealed he tested positive *before* Prince Charles then travelled up to Deeside (an area without very much in the way of Coronavirus), which is very much not a good idea. He also got tested by the NHS with "mild" symptoms, whereas the general testing procedure is only for those with severe symptoms.

yup, pretty sure I saw an NHS Trust Clinical Director (not sure which NHS Trust mind) being interviewed on the BBC yesterday saying they didnt have enough test kits (or antibody test kits) to test all essential NHS workers and that inevitably some would be staying at home self isolating when they didn't need to, or some might be unfortunately have the virus and not know for a few days.

Yes, a major issue keeping NHS staff away from work.

My boss' wife is a GP, she came down with symptoms a couple of weeks' back. After a week of self-isolation, she's back at work. It would be very useful for her to know if she was now immune or not, but no - there's not testing for NHS staff who aren't seriously ill.

I think the Royal Family might have shot themselves in the foot with this one.

The difficulty in obtaining tests, particularly for frontline NHS staff, has been well documented this week. For a senior Royal (who was displaying ‘mild’ symptoms) and his asymptomatic wife to receive NHS tests ahead of much more serious cases, is not going to go down well with the public in the coming days.

A more friendly approach would be to say he had to be tested to ensure he did not pass it on whilst carrying out his duties. Imagine if he went into isolation with mild symptoms, cancelled all his duties but had not been tested. Cries of Charlie hiding away from the anti royalists.

Wasn't aware of that Bear. Perhaps it's a clever plan then to make sure he keeps out the way and does not promote acupuncture as a cure.
That's what I 'heard' on TV but media reports not clear. He had private meetings at Highgate last week, had symptoms in Birkhall over the weekend, was tested Monday and results yesterday and now both self-isolating at home.

He is the heir to the throne and is in frequent contact with the Queen . Regardless of views on monarchy what do you expect.
Or would you prefer the headline - "The queen has died from CV19 which she picked up from her son"
