The heir to the English throne Prince Charles has reportedly contracted the COVID-19 virus for a second time on Thursday, Feb. 10, just days after spending time with the Queen as she celebrated her Platinum Jubilee.

The 73-year-old monarch-in-waiting, who just hours earlier was in the British Museum to celebrate the work of the British Asian Trust, is now self-isolating in Clarence House after the positive test was confirmed, according to CNN.

“This morning The Prince of Wales has tested positive for COVID-19 and is now self-isolating,” an official 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.”

Queen Elizabeth II has also been isolated and her condition is being monitored closely. She has not been displaying any symptoms as of late. The English public has been reassured that the Queen, Prince Charles, and his wife Camilla have all been vaccinated, the New York Post reported.

This is not the first time that Prince Charles has contracted the virus: in March 2020, he was one of the first high-profile cases to get COVID as the world first implemented lockdowns to combat the virus. He received mild symptoms and was able to recover quickly.

During the British Asian Trust celebration at the British Museum, Charles paid tribute to the many victims in South Asia, saying that “In these most challenging times, the British Asian Trust has run four significant fundraising appeals which have so far raised almost [$27 million].”

Charles and Camila previously paid tribute to the first time the COVID-19 vaccine was administered to a patient, which occurred on December 8, 2020, to 90-year-old Margaret Keenan from the United Kingdom.

“It is the most enormous tribute to the remarkable ingenuity and determination of everyone involved that, one year after the first Covid-19 vaccination, more than a hundred million doses have now been delivered,” they said in the statement.
