Coronavirus: Prince Charles makes first appearance since COVID-19 diagnosis

Prince Charles has said he is thinking of all those "who have lost loved ones" in his first appearance since he was diagnosed with coronavirus.

The Duke of Cornwall made the comments in a recorded video message in support of the Age UK charity, which is helping the elderly during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Charles, who is patron of the charity, said in the footage posted on royal social media accounts: "Having recently gone through the process of contracting this coronavirus - luckily with relatively mild symptoms - I now find myself on the other side of the illness, but still in no less a state of social distance and general isolation."

He added: "As we are all learning, this is a strange, frustrating and often distressing experience when the presence of family and friends is no longer possible and the normal structures of life are suddenly removed.

"At such an unprecedented and anxious time in all our lives, my wife and I are thinking particularly of all those who have lost their loved ones in such very difficult and abnormal circumstances, and of those having to endure sickness, isolation and loneliness."

The message was recorded on Tuesday morning by staff at Birkhall, the prince's home in Scotland.
