Prince Charles has been tested positive for the coronavirus has announced Clarence House in a statement on Wednesday 25 march. Before prevent the press, the heir to the throne has held himself to inform his sons William and Harry.
He didn’t want to worry his son. This Wednesday, march 25, a statement issued by Clarence House revealed that prince Charles had been tested positive for the coronavirus. The bad news, however, non-alarming : the health of the prince of Wales, confined to Birkhall in Scotland with his wife Camilla Parker Bowles, did not inspire any concern. His wife, tested also, would not have contracted the virus. For the time being, impossible to know how prince Charles has caught the virus, said Clarence House, but it’s going well, and that is all that matters.
It is surely the message that he also wanted to pass to his two sons, princes Harry and William. To reassure them, and before they learn it in the press, and that they do not panic, the heir to the throne was obliged to inform his son of his state of health. “Prince Charles spoke to his two sons. William to Norfolk, and Harry in Canada,” said the british journalist Chris Ship on Twitter.
Father and son, distant
The two brothers, in the first place worried, had to be reassured, to have their father on the phone. Prince William, confined with his wife Kate Middleton and their three children, is in fact miles away from his father at their country home in Norfolk. Since the beginning of the health crisis, the duke of Cambridge is in the first row, multiplying it with his wife travel not without follow the precautionary measures, imposed as gently as a future king.
But farther still, the blow is hard for prince Harry. Resident with Meghan Markle and their son Archie in Canada, this news falls very ill while the duke of Sussex has recently distanced himself with the royal family. Harry will return there more quickly than expected in England to relieve his brother in his bonds and get closer to this clan that he had preferred to depart from his life ? This health crisis without precedent could reshuffle the cards.
