Prince Charles’s last public engagement was on March 12 – the same day he
last saw the Queen – when he attended a dinner in aid of the Australian
bushfire relief and recovery effort.
However, the prince has also been working from home over the last few days,
and has held a number of private meetings with Highgrove and Duchy of Cornwall
individuals, all of whom have been made aware.
A number of household staff at Birkhall – Prince Charles’s residence on the
Balmoral estate – are now self-isolating at their own homes.
A palace source said Prince Charles has spoken to both the Queen and his sons – Prince William and Prince Harry – and is in good spirits.
It is not known how many meetings Nadine Dorries had attended at Westminster
or in her constituency in recent days, but she was at an event at Downing
Street on March 5 to mark International Women’s Day.
She also held a surgery in her constituency on March 6 which was attended by
up to 12 people, according to Steven Dixon, chair of the Mid Bedfordshire
Steven Dixon said the details of all those who attended the surgery have
been passed to the NHS.
The Flitwick Club, where the surgery took place, is undergoing a deep clean
as a precaution.
The Department of Health said ministers – including the prime minister –
would not need to undergo testing as Public Health England (PHE) has assessed
the risk of Nadine Dorries’ close contacts and only those with symptoms needed
Nadine Dorries added she was worried about her 84-year-old mother who was
staying with her and began to cough on March 10.
