I am not surprised! The royal family is constantly around people, their servants at the very least. Can anyone picture Prince Charles making himself a cuppa?

He doesn't even iron his own shoelaces.

How long has it been since Harry and Meghan were in the UK? More than 2 weeks?

I think they all kept a social distance from them.

I think it is more concerning that he had contact with Queen. Isn't she 94? Though she is isolated and I am sure she is getting the best medical attention possible. It is sad that families who have so much contact with the public have unknowingly taken such a risk.

I know Camilla has tested negative, so I’m hoping the Queen has too. I presume we’d be told if anything was wrong with her...

Supposedly, he was with the Queen just outside the contagious time frame. My concern is for Camilla as she is a smoker and prone to pulmonary problems. Prince Charles has never been happier in his life than he is with his Duchess and he would be lost without her. I hope very much that she stays well.

I cannot imagine how many hands he shakes every day!

The Queen's habit of wearing gloves may pay off for her.

I think Prince Charles is a twit. A word I've heard a number of his subjects use when talking about him.

His mother will be a hard act to follow.

Great, Lars. I loved the Pythons and almost everything they did, movies especially. If you've ever listened to Conan O'Brien's podcast, Conan OB Needs A Friend, Eric Idle was a guest on one episode. He spoke of the individuals and how they met and came together.

I used to have an orange MGB as those shown in the segment, with North American left hand steering wheel placement of course.

So funny Lars. I am no fan of Charles and agree he has a twittish quality about him, but he was a good athlete.

I have nothing against Charles and hope the reports of his being a mild case are accurate.

I expect William will be a better and better liked monarch. He's obviously much less daft and has better bloodlines, from his mother's side.

On the global Covid front, I think it's time for an emergency US-UK heads of state summit, as soon as possible. Somewhere where close and frank discussions can be held. There's no time to lose. (PS, how long is Boris likely to be contagious to others?)

I’m sure both Charles and Boris spread the virus widely, considering the handshaking and meetings they attend.


Did anyone else see the cute video of Williams children applauding for the healthcare workers? Cute kids. Hope they can have some normality in their lives.

Yes to this! And include Pence!

Include Pence? What for? He's just a puppet. He's careful about what he says, and is careful to not contradict Trump. If he could speak freely, perhaps.

include Fauci, someone who knows what he’s talking about.

dedtired, sorry, you missed ccrunner's intended snark. We wouldn't want Fauci at such a meeting.

Refer to the Presidential Succession Act of 1947 as to why Pence should accompany Trump to this hypothetical, won't happen meeting.

Actually, Diana and Charles are distant cousins.

True. I don't know if my quick search came up with the right information but what I found said that Queen E and Prince Philip are third cousins, Queen Victoria (who died in 1901) was their common great great grandmother. Charles and Diana were 16th cousins, once removed, with the common ancestor of King Henry VII of England who died in 1509
