Coronavirus in Royal Family – level 2

01-04-2020 07:00

Doctors diagnosed Prince Charles with the coronavirus. He has mild symptoms and apart from the coronavirus he is in good health. It is not clear when he became ill because he has attended many public events recently.

Charles is 71 years old, and he is Queen Elizabeth II’s eldest son. He is the first in line to the British throne. His wife, Camilla, tested negative for the coronavirus, and the couple left for Scotland where they stay indoors, and they do not meet other people.

In the UK, the coronavirus is spreading fast. The Queen, who last met with her son in the middle of March, moved out of London. The 93-year-old queen is healthy, and she is staying at Windsor Castle currently.

Difficult words: diagnose (when doctors say that somebody has a specific disease or health problem), mild symptoms (when an illness is not very strong), first in line (the first person who will get something).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
