Prince Albert says he can't be accused of contaminating Prince Charles
Prince Albert explained he and Prince Charles "never shook hands." He said: "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."
Prince Albert of Monaco also explained there were a lot of other people at the event. "I know he continued his schedule afterwards for a number of days. He had a number of other opportunities to catch it," he added. Prince Charles' doctors say the Prince of Wales wouldn't have been contagious before March 13.
Prince Charles' coronavirus diagnosis was confirmed by Clarence House on Wednesday. He has been experiencing mild symptoms but remains in good health. Where Prince Albert contracted the virus is still unknown; he is currently supporting Monaco's defense against the disease.
