Having previously left his London residence amid the Covid-19 pandemic, Prince Charles announced this week that he'd tested positive for coronavirus.

Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles had travelled to the royal family's Balmoral estate in Scotland, before the heir to the throne began displaying mild symptoms. The couple was subsequently tested by the NHS, with Charles testing positive.

The Duchess of Cornwall, whose test results came back negative, is self-isolating in a separate wing of the Birkhall residence on the Balmoral estate.

The Clarence House Instagram account shared an update regarding the prince's health this weekend. The caption read, "Thank you for all your ‘Get Well Soon’ messages for His Royal Highness. He is enormously touched by your kind words."

A palace source previously told Bazaar.com that Charles remains in "good spirits," and continues to keep busy with work while in quarantine.

The source also revealed, per Bazaar.com's Royal Editor-at-Large, Omid Scobie, that Charles "is said to be overwhelmed at the support he has received from well-wishers who have already sent hundreds of get well soon cards and digital messages".

Meanwhile, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are self-quarantining per government advice at Anmer Hall, their estate in Norfolk. The Cambridges will remain in self-isolation with their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.

The Cambridge children joined the NHS 'Clap for carers' campaign, via a sweet video shared on social media.

Meanwhile, the Queen is self-isolating in Windsor - where it's believed she's preparing to deliver a televised speech - while the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are reported to be in isolation in Los Angeles.
