Duchess Camilla, 72, has tested negative for COVID-19.

The news comes after Prince Charles has tested positive for the coronavirus, according to a statement from Clarence House on March 25.

According to the briefing, the 71-year-old "has been displaying mild symptoms, but otherwise remains in good health and has been working from home throughout the last few days as usual."

Based on the results of the tests, the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall are following medical and government advice and self-isolating separately.

"In accordance with government and medical advice, the Prince and the Duchess are now self-isolating at home in Scotland," the statement continues. "The tests were carried out by the NHS in Aberdeenshire where they met the criteria required for testing."

Charles and Camilla are reportedly in self-isolation at their Birkhall home at the Royal Family's Balmoral estate. It is believed they will remain there for the foreseeable future, according to Town & Country.

The BBC reported that Birkhall isn't a "huge house but certainly big enough to isolate yourself within it" and the couple also have staff to support them.
