Prince Charles Says He Misses His Family During Pandemic: 'You Really Want to Give People a Hug'



Charles himself previously tested positive for COVID-19, experiencing "relatively mild symptoms" for about a week.

"As we are all learning this is a strange, frustrating and often distressing experience when the presence of family and friends is no longer possible and the normal structures of life are suddenly removed," he said in April, offering words of solidarity with others finding it difficult to cope.

"At such an unprecedented and anxious time in all our lives, my wife and I are thinking particularly of all those who have lost their loved ones in such very difficult and abnormal circumstances, and of those having to endure sickness, isolation and loneliness," he added.
