Prince Charles and Camilla Clap for Healthcare Workers in Self Isolation Following His Coronavirus Diagnosis

The Prince of Wales announced that he had tested positive for coronavirus on Tuesday.

Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, are extremely grateful for the National Health Service (NHS) workers! On Thursday evening, across the United Kingdom, people took a moment to cheer on the nurses and doctors who have risked their lives during the coronavirus outbreak by participating in the #ClapsForCarers initiative.

From their Scotland residence in Birkhall, Prince Charles and Camilla joined in, clapping from their separate wings as they self-isolate from one another. The couple shared the separate videos on the Clarence House Instagram Stories. 

In the clip, 71-year-old Charles appears to be in very good health, wearing a tan suit jacket and standing up while clapping. Camilla, 72, claps at her window, looking out. The couple is currently distancing from one another after Charles tested positive for the coronavirus on Tuesday

A source previously told ET that Queen Elizabeth II's son is “doing well” after Clarence House confirmed that he is experiencing "mild symptoms." 

As for Charles and Camilla, they remain separate, but in touch. 

A royal source says, "Both remain in good spirits. [Camilla] has concern for the prince. She is aware of his good spirits and therefore, as any partner would, is keeping a close eye on him and mindful of her own situation. She is very upbeat."

Charles wasn't the only member of the royal family to participate in the #ClapsForCarers trend. Queen Elizabeth, who is currently quarantined with Prince Philip in Windsor Castle, shared a video on the official royal family account of those working at the castle, cheering on healthcare workers with claps, bells, and more. 

Prince William and Kate Middleton also shared a precious video of their three children, Prince George, 6, Princess Charlotte, 4, and the almost 2-year-old Prince Louis, all clapping in unison. 

"To all the doctors, nurses, carers, GPs, pharmacists, volunteers and other NHS staff working tirelessly to help those affected by #COVID19: thank you," the caption reads.
