The Prince of Wales, Charles, has tested positive for COVID-19 again and is currently in self isolation.

In a statement on Twitter Thursday, Clarence House said the 73-year-old tested positive for the virus earlier in the day and subsequently cancelled engagements in Winchester.

The statement read: “This morning, The Prince of Wales tested positive for COVID-19 and is now self-isolating

“His Royal Highness is deeply disappointed not to be able to attend today’s events in Winchester and will look to reschedule his visit as soon as possible.”

Prince Charles contracted the virus in March 2020 when he announced he had mild symptoms.
