Coronavirus in Royal Family – level 3

01-04-2020 07:00

Prince Charles has been diagnosed with the coronavirus. Charles, who is 71 years old, is Queen Elizabeth II´s eldest son, and he is first in line to the British throne.

A spokesperson for Buckingham Palace said that Charles has mild symptoms, and otherwise remains in good health. It is not clear when exactly Charles contracted the virus because he has carried out many public engagements recently.

Charles´s wife, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, tested negative for the coronavirus, and the couple is currently self-isolating in Scotland. The Queen is still healthy and has not seen her son since the middle of March. She temporarily moved to Windsor Castle outside of London while the coronavirus outbreak continues to spread.

Difficult words: contract (to catch or become ill with a disease), engagement (an arrangement to do something or to be somewhere), self-isolate (to stay indoors and to completely avoid contact with other people).
