Prince Charles has made a plea to fans after the coronavirus outbreak has affected industries across the country.
The Prince of Wales shared a statement in his website with an update about royal correspondence.
‘Please be aware that due to operating restrictions caused by Coronavirus measures, our capacity to deal with correspondence is currently reduced,’ wrote the heir apparent in a statement.
‘Our ability to reply to letters and cards will take longer than usual,’ he continued, adding that, ‘this applies to correspondence for The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall (opens in new tab), The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (opens in new tab) and The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’.
‘As a result we are asking if correspondents would help by considering whether their communication is necessary or whether it might wait until the situation has resolved’.
This comes as the heir apparent was confirmed as being the first British royal to have contracted the COVID-19 (opens in new tab) virus.
“In accordance with government and medical advice, the Prince and the Duchess are now self-isolating at home in Scotland,” said a spokesperson for the royal.
“The tests were carried out by the NHS in Aberdeenshire where they met the criteria required for testing.

“It is not possible to ascertain from whom the Prince caught the virus owing to the high number of engagements he carried out in his public role during recent weeks”.
We wish the Prince of Wales all the best in his current condition and hope to see him well and healthy soon.
