Prince Charles, who tested positive for Covid-19, has made headlines worldwide. The palace says he hasn’t seen the queen in two weeks, so she wasn’t unmasked (at least not by him).
Australia’s man in London, George Brandis was at an event with the prince recently but says he is fine.
As AAP reports:
Australian High Commissioner George Brandis has no symptoms of coronavirus after holding one of the last official events of the now sick Prince of Wales.
Heir to the throne Charles, 71, shows “mild symptoms” of the disease, but is in good health and good mood when he isolates himself in Birkhall, Scotland, a spokesman said.
It is believed that one of the last official engagements the prince attended was a fundraiser for Australian bushfires at Mr. Brandis’ official residence at Stoke Lodge, London on March 12th.
According to the spokesman for the Australia House, the 62-year-old high commissioner has no symptoms and follows the guidelines of the British government.
“We all from the Australian High Commission wish His Royal Highness an early recovery,” the spokesman said in a statement on Wednesday.
The Prince’s Clarence House office cannot determine exactly whether Charles discovered the infection in the fundraiser or not.
“It is not possible to determine who the prince caught the virus from, given the high number of engagements he has undertaken in his public role in recent weeks,” a spokesman said.
His wife Camilla, 72, who also lives in Birkhall in Aberdeenshire, tested the virus negatively and separated from the prince.
Doctors believe that future King Charles became contagious on March 13, the day after he last saw his mother, the Queen.
Buckingham Palace said the 93-year-old monarch, who lives at Windsor Castle with the 98-year-old Duke of Edinburgh, is still in good health and is following all reasonable advice.
Philip was not with the Queen at Buckingham Palace the last time she met Charles on March 12th.
