  • Prince Charles has been seen for the first time since testing positive for coronavirus.
  • Charles filmed a video of himself clapping for the National Health Service.

Prince Charles has been seen for the first time since his coronavirus diagnosis in a video showing his thanks and appreciation for the NHS (National Health Service). On Thursday night, Charles joined people across the United Kingdom in expressing his gratitude, cheering doctors and nurses on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic.

Both Charles and his wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, made videos from separate wings of their home in Scotland, as they’re currently self-isolating from one another:

Prince Charles’ offices revealed he tested positive for coronavirus earlier this week, saying in a statement: “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.” They added, “It is not possible to ascertain from whom the Prince caught the virus owing to the high number of engagements he carried out in his public role during recent weeks.”

The royal family are all self-isolating separately, and according to a statement from Buckingham Palace:

Her Majesty The Queen remains in good health. The Queen last saw The Prince of Wales briefly on the morning of 12th March and is following all the appropriate advice with regard to her welfare. We will not be commenting further.”

Meanwhile, Meghan and Harry are self-isolating in Los Angeles with their son Archie, and Kate and William are at their country home with their children George, Charlotte, and Louis.
