Prince Charles, the heir to the British throne, is now out of self-isolation, following his diagnosis of coronavirus.

The Prince of Wales, 71, spent seven days self-isolating in Scotland after testing positive and displaying mild symptoms. His wife, the Duchess of Cornwall, 72, was tested and did not have the virus, but will self-isolate until the end of the week.

A Palace official said the prince was in good health and was following the government's restrictions.

"Clarence House has confirmed today that, having consulted with his doctor, the Prince of Wales is now out of self-isolation," a spokesman said.

Prince Charles, who is known as the Duke of Rothesay in Scotland, spent his seven days of quarantine at his Birkhall home on the royal Balmoral estate.

According to government guidelines, anyone with symptoms should self-isolate for seven days, while everyone living in their household should self-isolate for two weeks. 

Buckingham Palace previously said the Queen last saw her son on 12 March, and was "in good health".

A number of senior British officials have tested positive for the virus in recent days, including Prime Minister Boris Johnson and the Health Secretary Matt Hancock. 

The country has recorded 1,789 deaths from the virus so far, and experts have warned that the death rate is expected to increase in the coming days.
