PRINCE Charles has told Brits to “look forward to better times” in a message of hope after battling coronavirus.
The royal, 71, spoke publicly for the first time after spending a week in quarantine having been diagnosed with coronavirus.
Charles suffered only mild symptoms but is in an age group classed as at “increased risk of severe illness”.
The future king described the crisis facing the country as “unprecedented” and praised the “extraordinary” and “selfless” NHS heroes.
Coronavirus has infected more than 25,000 people in the UK and claimed 1,829 lives.
Speaking from his home at Birkhall, in the Scottish Highlands, Charles said: “As a nation, we are faced by a profoundly challenging situation, which we are only too aware threatens the livelihoods, businesses and welfare of millions of our fellow citizens.
“None of us can say when this will end, but end it will. Until it does, let us all try and live with hope and, with faith in ourselves and each other, look forward to better times to come.”
