Prince Charles is out of isolation.

The Prince of Wales revealed on Thursday that he tested positive for Covid-19 but has since stopped self-isolating. We assume he will be practising social distancing going forward.

A statement on Monday read, "Clarence House has confirmed today that, having consulted with his doctor, The Prince of Wales is now out of self-isolation."

His Royal Highness had been in isolation for seven days but is now is "good health", ITV News royal editor, Chris Ship reports. "The Duchess of Cornwall, however, remains in self-isolation as per the government instructions. Those *with* symptoms must self isolate for seven days. Those family members *without* symptoms must self isolate for 14 days," he tweeted.

The news comes shortly after a source said both Charles and Camilla remain in "good spirits" and the royal couple took to Instagram to thank their well-wishers.

"Thank you for all your 'Get Well Soon' messages for His Royal Highness. He is enormously touched by your kind words," their post read.
