"HRH is deeply disappointed not to be able to attend today's events in Winchester and will look to reschedule his visit as soon as possible."
Charles, 73, first had Covid back in March of 2020 when he was the first member of the royal family to contract the virus, in the early days of the pandemic.
Yesterday, the Prince of Wales, who is double vaccinated and boosted, joined Chancellor Rishi Sunak and Home Secretary Priti Patel at a black tie event for the British Asian Trust.
Charles made a speech at the big event last night and chatted and shook hands with guests, before testing positive for Covid today.
Speaking about his first bout of Covid back in 2020, Charles admitted he was lucky to have not suffered severe symptoms.
"I was lucky in my case... but I've had it, and I can so understand what other people have gone through.
"I feel particularly for those who have lost their loved ones and have been unable to be with them at the time. That, to me, is the most ghastly thing," he added.

Charles carried out investitures at Windsor Castle yesterday, and while the monarch was not in attendance, it's possible that her son would have paid a visit to her, as she is currently using the castle as her main residence.
