Prince Charles Says He's 'Distressed' in First Video Since COVID-19 Diagnosis

In a video posted on Clarence House's official Twitter account, the British royal says that this has been 'a strange, frustrating and often distressing experience.'

AceShowbiz - Prince Charles has broken his silence after he has been tested positive for Coronavirus. In a video shared on Clarence House's official Twitter account on April 1, the British royal stressed the importance of looking out for older people at this uncertain time.

"Having recently gone through the process of contracting this coronavirus -- luckily with relatively mild symptoms -- I now find myself on the other side of the illness, but still in no less a state of social distance and general isolation," Charles said in the video, which was recorded by a member of staff at his Scottish home Birkhall.

The Prince of Wales went on saying that this has been a "strange, frustrating and often distressing experience when the presence of family and friends is no longer possible and the normal structures of life are suddenly removed," expressing his sympathy for those who have lost their loved ones to the deadly bug and those who have to endure loneliness due to the pandemic.

"As Patron of Age UK, and my wife the Patron of SilverLine, our hearts go out to all those older people throughout this country who are now experiencing great difficulty," Charles continued, going on to praise those who are doing everything to support the community amid the difficulty. "It is clearly essential, therefore, that such key people are treated with special consideration when coming off their exhausting duties and trying to do their shopping, for instance, while having to contend with constant anxiety about their own families and friends."

To conclude his message, Charles shared a message to people in the U.K., "As a nation, we are faced by a profoundly challenging situation, which we are only too aware threatens the livelihoods, businesses and welfare of millions of our fellow citizens. None of us can say when this will end, but end it will. Until it does, let us all try and live with hope and, with faith in ourselves and each other, look forward to better times to come."

Charles was deemed fit to leave isolation on Monday, seven days after testing positive for Coronavirus.
