Prince Charles is the eldest son of Queen Elizabeth II. He is 71 years old. He is the future King of the UK. Prince Charles is ill. He has the coronavirus. His illness is not very strong. He does not have other health problems. His wife, Camilla, is healthy.

Charles and Camilla are in Scotland now. They stay in quarantine. It is not clear when Charles becomes ill. He meets a lot of people.

In the UK, there are 11,600 cases of coronavirus. Almost 600 people die. It is not safe for the Queen to stay in London. The Queen is 93 years old. She is healthy. However, she leaves London. She stays at Windsor Castle. It is 19 miles from London.

Difficult words: eldest (the oldest in a family), quarantine (when people stay at home, and they do not meet other people), case (one example of something).
