Prince Albert Denies Being the One Who Gave Prince Charles Coronavirus

Prince Albert II and Prince Charles both attended WaterAid’s Water and Climate event in London, England on March 10, and days later, both contracted COVID-19 aka Coronavirus.

On Thursday (March 19), Prince Albert revealed he had been diagnosed with Coronavirus. On Wednesday (March 25), Prince Charles revealed he had contracted the contagious virus as well.

Many thought, perhaps it was Prince Albert who caused Prince Charles to fall ill (though his symptoms are being described as mild.)

“I was at a roundtable for his foundation, but we never shook hands,” Prince Albert said on RTL. “I was at the other end of the table, way far away.”

“We nodded hello to one another, so I don’t think I can really be accused of contaminating him. There were a lot of other people around at the congress center, and I know he continued his schedule afterwards for a number of days. [He] had a number of other opportunities to catch it,” Prince Albert continued.

Prince Albert II of Monaco Tests Positive for Coronavirus

Prince Albert II of Monaco has officially been diagnosed with Coronavirus.

The 62-year-old royal “is not worrying at all” about the diagnosis. He is being treated at Princess Grace Hospital and is going to be working from his home office. The statement added he is in contact with members of his government.

“His Serene Highness urges the people of Monaco to respect the measures of confinement and to limit contact with others to a minimum,” the statement read. “Only the strict observance of these confinement measures will make it possible to stop the spread of the coronavirus.”

Prince Albert is the second royal to be diagnosed with Coronavirus as the pandemic spreads across the world.

Prince Albert Spoke to Prince Harry About His Recent Drama & Here's What Was Said...

Prince Harry spoke to Prince Albert of Monaco about the recent drama involved with his wife Duchess Meghan Markle and the British press’ ruthless treatment of her. Prince Harry actually ended up filing a lawsuit over information that should not have been published.

Now, Prince Albert is revealing what he and Prince Harry spoke about with regard to this topic.

“I completely understand his reasons,” he told People. “He has said he feels ‘bullied,’ and I can understand and sympathized with him over that. We didn’t talk about it that much, because we talked about environment-related issues…but I sympathized with him, saying, ‘Just do what you have to do to ensure your privacy.’“

He also said he told Prince Harry that “sometimes you just have to ignore it and move on. Sometimes you can ignore whoever is out there that’s being too inquisitive or too hard on you.”

Prince Albert added, “you have to protect your personal life, your family and their intimacy as much as possible, whenever possible. Especially when you’re a public figure with appearances to attend. Of course, that’s harder to do than to say.”

He continued, “And it’s especially difficult with the British press, which is so inquisitive, so harsh. Not only on the royal family but on other celebrities and other public figures as well.”

The 42-year-old actor was honored at the event for his work to better the environment.

“As head of a state bordered by the sea, I have made ocean conservation a priority.

“Clean air, water, and a livable climate are inalienable human rights. And solving this crisis is not a question of politics, it is a question of our own survival,” Leo added.
