Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, the wife of Britain's Prince Charles, has tested positive for COVID-19, Clarence House announced Monday.

"Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cornwall has tested positive for COVID-19 and is self-isolating. We continue to follow government guidelines," a spokesperson from the royal couple's official residence said in a statement to TODAY.

The news follows a busy week of engagements for the duchess, who is 74.

On Thursday, she joined the mayor of London at Paddington Haven, a support center for victims of sexual assault.

On Friday, Camilla helped to open a community kitchen and met with staff, volunteers, and clients while touring the facility.

Camilla's brush with the virus comes one week after Prince Charles tested positive for the virus for a second time. The prince previously contracted the virus in March 2020.

“This morning The Prince of Wales has tested positive for COVID-19 and is now self-isolating,” the statement said. “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.”
