Four days after Prince Charles was confirmed to have contracted covid-19 for the second time, his wife, Camilla, has also tested positive for the virus, the couple’s royal household said Monday.

In a statement, Clarence House said Camilla, known as the Duchess of Cornwall, was self-isolating. It did not provide further details, saying only that “we continue to follow government guidelines.” Charles, 73, and Camilla, 74, are both triple-vaccinated, according to the Associated Press.

Thursday’s news that Charles was infected prompted concern about his 95-year-old mother, Queen Elizabeth II. A palace official said at the time that Charles had recently met with Elizabeth but that she was not showing any symptoms.

The official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss a private medical matter, did not divulge whether the queen had tested positive or negative for the virus, but said she would continue to be monitored closely. She has received at least one dose of the coronavirus vaccine.

Charles, heir to the British throne, was previously infected in March 2020, at the outset of the pandemic. Prince William caught the virus around the same time, British media later reported, but kept his illness secret to avoid alarming the country.

Charles thanked his mother, saying in a statement that he was “deeply conscious of the honour” for his “darling” wife.
