Prince Charles has tested positive for the coronavirus.
Clarence House announced the news on the behalf of the 73-year-old royal early Thursday morning.
“This morning The Prince of Wales has tested positive for COVID-19 and is now self-isolating,” a statement said. “HRH is deeply disappointed not to be able to attend today’s events in Winchester and will look to reschedule his visit as soon as possible.”
Prince Charles first tested positive for the viral disease at the onset of the pandemic in March 2020. At the time, a spokesperson for the heir to the throne told PEOPLE that the prince was in “good spirits” and continued working at home amid “mild symptoms.”
Last night, the royal couple stepped out in London to attend a reception to celebrate the British Asian Trust at the British Museum.
