Prince Charles Shares Message About Coronavirus Diagnosis — WATCH
Prince Charles has opened up since his coronavirus diagnosis to share his experience with COVID-19 and the resulting isolation.
In a PSA video shared by Clarence House’s social media accounts, the Prince of Wales discussed the pandemic and its effects on older members of the community, speaking as a patron of Age U.K., a charity which supports older people.
“Having recently gone through the process of contracting this coronavirus – luckily with relatively mild symptoms – I now find myself on the other side of the illness, but still in no less a state of social distance and general isolation,” he said. “As we are all learning, this is a strange, frustrating and often distressing experience when the presence of family and friends is no longer possible and the normal structures of life are suddenly removed.”
“At such an unprecedented and anxious time in all our lives, my wife and I are thinking particularly of all those who have lost their loved ones in such very difficult and abnormal circumstances, and of those having to endure sickness, isolation and loneliness,” he said in his video.
Earlier this week, it was reported Prince Charles is out of isolation a week after news broke about his diagnosis, and is in good health. The video was presumably filmed at Charles’s Birkhall home on the Queen’s Balmoral estate.
