Speaking to RTL radio on Thursday, the 62-year-old spoke in regards to the speculation that one of many royals could have affected the opposite on the assembly on 10 March. “I was at a roundtable for his foundation, but we never shook hands. I was at the other end of the table, way far away,” he mentioned. “We nodded hello to one another, so I don’t think I can really be accused of contaminating him.”
Prince Albert continued: “There were a lot of other people around at the congress centre and I know he continued his schedule afterwards for a number of days.” He added that Prince Charles “had a number of other opportunities to catch it”.

Prince Charles is at present self-isolating at his Scottish dwelling, Birkhall on the Balmoral property, after experiencing delicate signs of coronavirus. Prince Albert, in the meantime, shared his own experience with COVID-19 in an interview with People journal.
“My symptoms are flu-like, but it feels like a pretty mild case,” he mentioned. “I’ve a slight fever, not really that bad. A little bit of a cough. I’d a runny nose the first few days that was the first sign. I’ve felt a little stuffed up but that’s it. I have to be careful because of my recent medical history fighting off pneumonia a couple of years ago.”

Asked how he believes he could have contracted it, he added: “Ask one of my cabinet members. It could have been from a number of other people. For weeks now I’ve tried to be cautious, using hand sanitisers and all that, but you never know. I could’ve caught it talking to someone from less than three or even four feet away. And it could have happened at any point in the last ten days or so. You never know.”
