Prince Charles, 70, is heir to the British throne and he and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, 73, will one day head up the Royal Family. In March Charles became the first British Royal to test positive for Covid-19 but overcame the illness experiencing only mild symptoms. Camilla did not test positive despite living with Charles but isolated for 14 days as a precaution.
The royal couple spent the first lockdown in Scotland at their royal residence Birkhall on the Balmoral Estate.
However, they were among the first Royal Family members to resume face to face engagements when restrictions were eased.
In June the couple returned to London at the request of the British Government for an important meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron.
The engagement was to mark the 80th anniversary of General de Gaulle’s Appel speech and was the first time a face to face royal meeting had been carried out since lockdown.
