Prince Charles in self-isolation after testing positive for Covid

Prince Charles is self-isolating after testing positive for Covid-19 for a second time.

The heir to the throne spent seven days self-isolating in Scotland after displaying mild symptoms in March 2020.

A statement from Clarence House said the Prince of Wales is disappointed he cannot attend scheduled events in Winchester today.

He had been due to unveil a statue of Licoricia of Winchester, a medieval Jewish businesswoman who was a money lender in the Hampshire city.

On Wednesday evening, Charles met scores of people and was accompanied by Camilla at a reception in the British Museum to celebrate the work of the British Asian Trust (BAT).

The Prince of Wales has praised the “resilience and commitment” of a British Asian organisation working to help disadvantaged communities during the coronavirus pandemic.
Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall attended a reception at the British Museum on Wednesday evening to celebrate the work of the BAT, which he founded in 2007 to work to reduce poverty in south Asia.

They were joined by Chancellor Rishi Sunak, Home Secretary Priti Patel and former Liverpool footballer Ian Rush.

In a speech to the trust’s supporters and ambassadors, Charles, 73, spoke about the “devastating impact” the pandemic has had on south Asia.
