While NHS staff cannot get a Corona test

Probably because he's heir to the throne, and perhaps more importantly his mother is the monarch. He met with her as recently as March 12th I believe. Which definitely puts her at risk.

I can see why the republicans among us would feel negative towards Charles, but surely even they can see the critical importance of having the person who can sign Acts of Parliament into law, and her successor potentially become victims of the virus.

Br14. If Charlie pegged it tomorrow there will be other people who will step into his role. Nurses and doctors are in short supply and at the moment they are irreplaceable. Virus tests are also in short supply. He only had mild symptoms, not enough to warrant a test for non royalty.

Although I agree with your statement, can you imagine the negative impact it would have if we lost the next monarch.

I was surprised that he is 71 and his old lady 72.

i'm easy that his had a test, absolutely obvious, why wouldn't it be?.


his 'mild' symptoms are perfect, he can stay up in aberdeen without disturbance. Far from the madding crowd. I wish him a full speedy recovery.

In times like this (and i say this as a royalist) i am royaly pished off he has this test before our NHS staff. So wrong. He really is no more deserving than anyone else. The NHS and other carers must come first ffs surely :unsure:

While it's easy to understand, one test is hardly a big deal. Testing tens of thousands of NHS staff is. Which NHS staff member would you have preferred have the test? Not only that, but it makes absolutely no difference.

If it makes no difference, he AND his wife should not have been tested. Were the servants tested as well?

Actually one test could well be a huge deal to the NHS member that received it, their family and any people they come into contact with as a result of their employment. To suggest it makes absolutely no difference is so very wrong. Camilla was also tested too btw

I imagine he was not tested via the NHS but via private medical team, you can get yourself tested if you want to for about £375

As said above one test in the grand scheme of things. You are a loon if you think that members of parliament and the prime minister/cabinet are not getting tested. Likewise Trump, Macron etc, also how football players, Tom Hanks et al are getting tested.

He was served by the nhs. It would be important for him to be to do to ensure confidence remains with the nhs

If he got a private test the same people would still be complaining that he is paid by the taxpayer and got the the test ahead of them

I don’t think it’s hard to understand why he was tested as others have said
