'Coronavirus is everything but racist': Twitter reacts to Prince Charles testing positive
Twitter has been buzzing since news emerged that Prince Charles has Covid-19.
The 71-year-old Prince of Wales was diagnosed with the virus after developing “mild” symptoms, according to Clarence House.
Prince Charles is said to be self-isolating in Scotland, where he is working from home and “in good health”.
His wife, the Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla Parker-Bowles, tested negative.
“In accordance with government and medical advice, the prince and the duchess are now self-isolating at home in Scotland.”
For some on social media the news came as a shocker, while others found humour in it, saying everyone was “equal in the eyes of coronavirus”.
Here is a snapshot of the reactions:
Have to vent about something stupid. The News reporting Prince Charles having Covid 19 with statement: proof anyone can get it. 🤦♂️ Royals aren’t special humans you morons. He’s an old guy that basically does meet and greets for a living, he’s actually more likely to get it.— Lance Storm (@LanceStorm) March 26, 2020
Obviously no laughing matter that Prince Charles has Coronavirus (get well soon) but tell me you didn’t have a chuckle when they said he would ‘continue working from home’. I mean, 😂😂 come on!— Jason Manford (@JasonManford) March 25, 2020
