There was an article stating that Harry and Charles has met several times while Harry was in the UK...

If he was tested because he is the Prince of Wales, then in my view the Palace would be misleading in stating that he "met the criteria", given that no official policy issued from the NHS would explicitly express that as a criterion.

Of course. However, as I understand it, the conversation above was about whether, in this specific case, the official statement was being truthful or misleading in stating that the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall met the testing criteria of the NHS in Aberdeenshire. If all 70+-year-olds in Aberdeenshire who have come in contact with a confirmed case are receiving testing, the statement would be fair to make.

It was Harry final week in the UK. I honestly would be surprised if Charles hadn't interacted with his sons after the 9th especially as we had reports implying just that. Besides they don't even know when and where he got it. They saying the 13th is the likely time but we don't really know. The press already questioning that date. So since in a short window he did interact with his entire immediate family, nevermind all of them interacting with the public -- yes I am sure they have all been tested.

Yet they won't explains what that "criteria" is per some of the royal reporters who said they flat out asked. I was just watching Russell Meyers from The Mirror and he said that people have lots of questions and the palace basically not answering. Of course his status played a huge role in it. If 10 people met the same "criteria" and 9 of them had worse symptoms than Charles.... he would still get the test first. Just facts.

You can bet that the Cambridges were tested as well and William briefed about a possible change in the order of succession, "just in case".
Seems ghoulish as Hell but that's how it works.

Let's keep this simple - anyone that Charles has had face to face contact with in the last couple of weeks will be tested or at least be advised to self-isolate if they are not already doing so. Since Charles is still very much alive, briefing anyone on changes relating to the succession seems a little premature.

A lot premature....and I doubt anyone in his family is thinking that way.

Hope Charles is okay. I wondered if he would come down with it after we saw photos of him across the table from Albert of Monaco a couple weeks ago.

However, the article said he last saw the Queen on March 12 and began experiencing symptoms around March 22. His doctor says the conservative estimate is that he became contagious 24 hours after seeing the Queen, but the coronavirus can be in your body 5-14 days before you experience symptoms. So I'm not sure about that doctor's estimate...is it just to allay people's fears? It seems possible the Queen could have caught it, though I certainly hope she hasn't.

Not in the family but the courtiers for sure ...
Anticipating is the key, and , as i said, "just in case".
But the POW has a strong health so i'm positive everything will be fine.

Sending my best wishes to His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales, and his family.

I am sure William is very well aware that if Charles is to pass away before the queen that he will be her successor.

The Prince and Duchess are now self-isolating at Birkhall in Scotland with a small team of staff.

And in any event, the first two heirs to the throne are adults who have been prepared to ascend the throne in due course, so even in the event of a tragedy it is unlikely that Parliament would find it necessary to make changes.

It is possible I misinterpreted your remarks; I interpreted your discussion as responding to the statement from the palace that "they met the criteria required for testing" (the Palace did not make a claim regarding the order in which tested patients were given their tests).

If thereís a debate, itís because those who say itís only as serious as the regular flu are willfully blind, and in the case of Americans, stupid - these people think thereís a government conspiracy to restrict their freedoms. There is no real debate because reasonable people understand how serious this new strain is- because it IS new, and thereís no vaccine for it.

Plenty of young people are getting sick ...in my home state of NY, 54% of those infected are between 18 and 49.

Iíll be blunt - Iím tired of people (not here) whining that Charles shouldnít have gotten the test because heís got mike symptoms and heís privileged. Heís 71 years old - this is very serious.

We do not know what underlying conditions, if any, Charles has. He has had swollen red extremities for a long time now and that could be a result of a serious condition. He is also over 70 so in a high risk group.

Camilla has been a serious smoker so presumably has some lung issues. It could be devastating for her to get it as well.

Well, like the Prince de Monaco, also the Prince of Wales is feeling fine. We may be sure they are followed closely by a medical team. And both were immediately in the picture after the first presume of an infection. We can not say that for more than 90% of the infected. Right now you or me can be infected without symptoms and being a carrier of the virus without ourselves even being aware.

Wishing both princes speedy recovery. And they will. No doubt.

There are still a few idiots trying to flout the rules about only going out to buy essential items, to exercise once a day, or for essential work that can't be done from home. Things happen for a reason sometimes - maybe hearing that the future King has contracted the virus will make them realise that no-one is immune from this.

He has? I didn't know that ......but I just read an article and I think it's probably true; it's likely due to fluids having built up during a long flight (this was in November, when he went to India) without moving around. Generally speaking, he's in good health, and he eats well.

Did Camilla quit? If so, and she hasn't had any issues, then she's probably ok - as ok as she can be, I guess.

Regardless, just the fact that Charles is over 70 is enough to make it an extremely serious case. I can't imagine what William and Harry are going through.

I hope so. There really is no excuse for irresponsible behaviour that can potentially harm themselves or others.

I must admit I had quite a shock hearing this news.
