Personally it sounds like they are simply referring to the lockdown rules that are in force in the Uk for all at the moment. The rule is you can go out once a day for exercise but throughout it all we've been told you can go out in your own garden so I suspect Charles would be able to go out in his own gardens at Birkhall with common sense dictating he would do so alone while he in infected.

It's the same for every Brit; and the guidelines also advise to stay close to home and not go anywhere on public transport.

It's the rule for everyone, as other people have said. It does sound a bit like we're all imprisoned in the Tower of London and are only allowed out to walk round the courtyard once a day :-) , but we're all allowed out to exercise once a day, somewhere local. And you can go out in your own garden, or on your own drive. I think every person in my street has washed their car in the last 4 days!

Well that's the law. How it is interpreted, its not for an amateur to say. But I saw on a news programme that driving a long way out in the country to go for a walk or take your dog out, isn't supposed to be permitted..as you can exercise locally without taking a trip. Possibly Charles is sticking to the rules even though he has his own grounds because he knows that a lot of people were flouting rules.

They want to make sure he doesn't start pruning something when he probably should avoid anything too strenuous.

That’s what made me wonder- is he very weak, or poorly, or is the “stay in your house” order that strictly interpreted?
Hope he’s okay.

Oh no, Charles is healthy and strong......my thinking was that, despite this, he IS 71 and so is still vulnerable (though probably better off than people half his age). Maybe walking is not considered exercise in the traditional sense - it's not strenuous (generally - I'm not referring to power walking). It's also a good idea to get fresh air.........

I am sure his doctor has given him strict guidelines to adhere to regards what he can and cannot do.
I wish HRH a good recovery.

What it all could mean too is that the PoW wants to be shown as adhering to the guidelines imposed just like everyone else is at this time. The article is illustrating just how Charles is coping with self isolation and keeping himself busy from home.

This is a man that takes brisk walks to relax and is always doing something. He's the furthest thing from the definition of a couch potato that I could think of. Camilla, on the other hand, is probably relishing being curled up on the couch with warm blankets, a cup of tea and a good book. I'm a Camilla.

VF doesn't have access to Charles' medical records or an ear to his doctor. They are making statements on the quarantine guidelines in the UK. It is pretty easy to understand that Charles would follow the same.

As for 'the future king'.....as we have seen this virus has no respect for titles and position.

His hands give away the notion of "healthy and strong".

What are you referring to? In any case, he’s always seemed healthy and strong to me. He looks good, he eats well....Charles is considered to be generally fit and healthy. Do you know something we don’t know?

I believe that Leopoldine is referring to Charles suffering from rosacea. He's had this all his life. Its defined as: "Rosacea (roe-ZAY-she-uh) is a common skin condition that causes redness and visible blood vessels in your face. It may also produce small, red, pus-filled bumps. These signs and symptoms may flare up for weeks to months and then go away for a while."

One of the effects of rosacea is edema and that is what causes his fingers to swell up. Its not an indicator that Charles is in poor health but this condition could possibly be exacerbated by this virus. Older people (like me) are more prone to having underlying conditions such as COPD, chronic bronchitis and even a common cold and other pulmonary ailments which when mixed with COVID-19, can seriously make things so much worse and dangerous.

Robert Jobson has said that the Prince has had chest infections, so if that’s the case - and associated with rosacea - then it is worrisome because of how especially vulnerable he would be with pulmonary issues.

Of course, Charles isn’t healthy now, but in general he is quite robust and that should help see him through.

Hardly.

Like his father he has 'sausage fingers'. He was born with them. Queen Mary even commented on them when she saw him in 1948.

Philip also has them and he is 98 so hardly an indication of someone who is unhealthy or not strong.

I found myself astonished at the number of people who have moaned online and in the DF about Charles and Camilla being tested. Both spend their time helping to oil the wheels of trade, innovation, diplomacy, etc. On behalf of what people would think was an ungrateful nation if they didn't know better. Charles is 71 and his mother, our Queen is 93(?) And both still put in amazing days of work and while HM reluctantly has stepped back at this time, Charles had not until I guess he felt tired and decided to leave for Balmoral early for Easter.

Just from what we saw of his interaction with people from the 13th of March until he left was stunning (to be honest it made me feel tired). I do not know if the NHS is tracking contacts of the infected but I wonder how many of the people he met were infected. Even poor Prince Albert was sitting across the table from him and how many droplets touched the table or the paperwork that was moving around from infected people

As to the crammed reception? Anyone could have breathed on him just as someone did on BoJo. If they tracked everyone Charles mane would be there and his age and the fact he was unwell would seem a no brainer. As is the fact that the Duke and Duchess of Rothersay were in Scotland who has it's own health system.

Marg, the nastiness towards Charles and the BRF never fails to amaze me. Even in normal times, there’s an undercurrent of deep resentment towards them. If I see nasty, cruel comments on Twitter, I block them - I can’t deal with that kind of inhumanity.

I’m glad Charles continues to do well...

I think the complaints about testing is due to the general situation regarding testing in the UK, rather than a criticism of the BRF.
My friend is a Colorectal Surgeon in the UK, with symptoms of the common cold and a temperature >37.8. Nevertheless, his hospital did not test him, but asked him to self-isolate for 14 days - this is commonplace for NHS staff (although hopefully about to change). He has therefore been at home, rather than operating on cancer patients before the Covid peak, and has been unable to undertake training geared towards Covid.
Although he's fairly pro-Royal, I can imagine him asking WTF??? if I told him that Prince Charles has been tested with some minor symptoms, yet he hasn't.

Is rosacea an illness that is hereditary?

Yes and No.


https://ghr.nlm.nih.gov/condition/rosacea#inheritance


Quote:
Because rosacea is a complex disease with both genetic and environmental influences, it does not have a straightforward pattern of inheritance. Studies suggest that people with rosacea are four times more likely to have a family history of the disorder than people without the condition. This increased risk is likely due in part to shared genetic factors, but it may also be related to environment and other nongenetic factors that are shared by members of a family.
