Judy Murray: Prince Charles is lucky to be locked down in Scotland

Prince Charles is isolating in Scotland

The Prince of Wales is one of the latest high-profile names to test positive for COVID-19, after displaying mild symptoms.

The 71-year-old heir to the throne is self-isolating at Balmoral in Aberdeenshire.

Of course, I wish the prince a speedy recovery, but his diagnosis, once again, throws up the question of why some people are able to receive testing, after showing only minor warning signs, when even frontline NHS staff have no access to the precaution.

We are all know about the number of confirmed cases and tragic deaths, but without being able to test everyone it feels like a bit of a guessing game.

Charles has also been fortunate enough to relocate from London to the Highlands, where intensive care hospital beds are already stretched to the max, despite the general public being told to stay home and stay put. If only we all had Balmoral Estate to roam around in, lockdown wouldn’t be quite so bad!

Harry and Meghan in London earlier this month

Meanwhile, Harry and Meghan have reportedly left their temporary home in Vancouver, Canada, to set up in Los Angeles, California, before the border between the two countries was closed.

The couple officially step down as senior royals at the end of this month, but some have called for them to put their plans on hold and return to the UK to support the Queen through the current crisis.

As Prince Charles will be out of action for a significant period of time and may have to step away from duties indefinitely, all royal responsibilities would fall on to the shoulders of Prince William.

So, surely, this would be the right time to rebuild any bridges that might have collapsed between the brothers and the wider family?

But, as we’ve seen in the past six months or so, no matter what Harry and Meghan decide to do, their choice will always be criticised.
