Prince Charles tested positive for the virus in March but admitted he had got away lightly from the contagion. Charles, 71, had luckily only experienced mild symptoms of the virus. The Prince of Wales recovered after spending seven days in self-isolation at his home at Birkall on the Balmoral estate.

He said after recovering: “I was lucky in my case but I’ve had it, and I can so understand what other people have gone through.

“I feel particularly for those have lost their loved ones and have been unable to be with them at the time.

“That, to me, is the most ghastly thing.

“But in order to prevent this happening to so many more people, I’m so determined to find a way out of this.”

William and Kate have been active following the end of the first lockdown.

The pair have often been seen and most recently paid an emotional tribute ahead of the Pride of awards on Sunday night.
