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 Conservative Association.
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 to self-isolate.
Nadine Dorries added she was worried about her 84-year-old mother who was staying with her and began to cough on March 10.
The number of total cases for the UK include 324 cases in England, 27 in Scotland, 16 in Northern Ireland and 15 in Wales.
There are 91 in London, with the next highest infected area being the south-east, with 51 cases. The latest person to die, on March 9, was a man in his 80s, with underlying health conditions, who was being treated at Watford General Hospital.
The man caught the virus in the UK and officials are trying to trace who he had been in contact with.
