This Morning continued today with hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, but when they came back from a break, the latter announced Prince Charles had tested positive for coronavirus and was self-isolating after discovering he had symptoms of the virus. But, when talking to a royal expert, Phillip said how surprised he was that a royal would be able to pick up such a virus.
Holly and Phillip spoke to royal expert Camilla Tominey just moments after the news broke.
Camilla explained: “We know that he’s been displaying some mild symptoms and we know he’s been in a form of self-isolation anyway.
“He hasn’t got it too seriously because his symptoms are mild and apparently he hasn’t passed it on to the duchess and will be following the government guidelines.
Phillip interrupted: “But, it is surprising, isn’t it?”

Camilla went on: “Well, it shows that it affects everyone even a future king.
“They do meet very many people, more than the average person.
“They were at the Commonwealth a few weeks ago and Prince Charles was doing that namaste greeting.
“He wasn’t touching anyone but he was having engagements and interacting with people.”
Camilla continued: “I know for instance a member of the House of Lords had to self isolate after that Commonwealth event.
“The Duke has been up in Sandringham, he has not seen any of his family.
“We don’t know about the contact the Prince of Wales has had with the Queen.
“It’s also worth remembering, of course, he isn’t the only royal suffering from Covid-19.”

Clarence House confirmed the king-in-waiting had tested positive for Covid-19 but was in “good health”.
They said in a statement: “The Prince of Wales has tested positive for coronavirus.
“He has been displaying mild symptoms but otherwise remains in good health and has been working from home throughout the last few days as usual.”
The Duchess of Cornwall has also been tested but does not have coronavirus.

“The tests were carried out by the NHS in Aberdeenshire where they met the criteria required for testing.”
This Morning continues on ITV tomorrow at 10am.
