The Prince of Wales, who tested positive for coronavirus last week, is now out of self-isolation.

Prince Charles, who is 71, developed mild symptoms last week and self-isolated at his Scottish home of Birkhall.

The Duchess of Cornwall, 72, who is also at Birkhall in Aberdeenshire, tested negative for the virus and will remain in self-isolation until the end of the week, observing the advice to separate for 14 days.

"Clarence House has confirmed today that, having consulted with his doctor, the Prince of Wales is now out of self-isolation," a Clarence House spokesman said.

Prince Charles is now said to be in good health and while isolating he continued to work at his desk and carried out a number of telephone meetings.

Footage of the Prince of Wales joining the nation in applauding the country’s health workers on Friday, while still suffering from the virus, was posted on Clarence House’s official Instagram account.

Charles and Camilla were tested by the NHS in Aberdeenshire last Monday.

During a military career, Prince Charles served in the Royal Navy and also trained as a jet pilot with the Royal Air Force.

In 2012, he was appointed a Field Marshal in the British Army, Admiral of the Fleet in the Royal Navy and Marshal in the Royal Air Force.

To mark his 71st birthday last November, gun salutes were fired by the King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery and Honourable Artillery Company.

In December, the Prince of Wales attended the commissioning of Britain's newest Queen Elizabeth-class aircraft carrier, HMS Prince of Wales, in his new role of Honorary Commodore-in-Chief, Aircraft Carriers.
