Good news from the royal family: Prince Charles is out of self-isolation after testing positive for coronavirus. Per BBC and several royal reporters, palace officials confirmed the update in a statement, saying "Clarence House has confirmed today that, having consulted with his doctor, the Prince of Wales is now out of self-isolation."

Prince Charles spent seven days self-isolating at his Birkhall home on the royal Balmoral estate in Scotland after testing positive for coronavirus. At the time, his office released an official statement saying "He has been displaying mild symptoms but otherwise remains in good health and has been working from home throughout the last few days as usual.”

Charles' wife Camilla was also tested and did not have the virus. Meanwhile, the Queen has been self-isolating in Windsor with a skeleton staff, and according to a statement from Buckingham Palace on March 25, “Her Majesty The Queen remains in good health. The Queen last saw The Prince of Wales briefly on the morning of 12th March and is following all the appropriate advice with regard to her welfare. We will not be commenting further.”

The rest of the royal family are also self-isolating in an attempt to help flatten the curve, with Kate and William at their country home with their children, and Meghan and Harry in their new home in Los Angeles.
