Sarah Ferguson revealed her thoughts on the coronavirus not long before Clarence House confirmed Prince Charles had tested positive.
The Duchess of York, who was married to Prince Andrew from 1986 to 1996, shared some snaps of the outdoors on Twitter.
She posted the caption, “Mother Nature has sent us to our rooms.. like the spoilt children we are. She gave us time and she gave us warnings. She was so patient with us. She gave us fire and floods, she tried to warn us but in the end she took back control.”
Ferguson added, “She has sent us to our rooms and when she is finished clearing up our mess. She will let us out to play again. How will we use this time? xxxx.”
It was revealed Wednesday that Charles had tested positive for COVID-19.
A statement confirmed the 71-year-old had been “displaying mild symptoms but otherwise remains in good health and has been working from home through the last few days as usual.”
It added, “It is not possible to ascertain from whom the Prince caught the virus owing to the high number of engagements he carried out in his public role during recent weeks.”
Questions about COVID-19? Here are some things you need to know:
Health officials caution against all international travel. Returning travellers are asked to self-isolate for 14 days in case they develop symptoms and to prevent spreading the virus to others.
Symptoms can include fever, cough and difficulty breathing — very similar to a cold or flu. Some people can develop a more severe illness. People most at risk of this include older adults and people with severe chronic medical conditions like heart, lung or kidney disease. If you develop symptoms, contact public health authorities.
To prevent the virus from spreading, experts recommend frequent handwashing and coughing into your sleeve. They also recommend minimizing contact with others, staying home as much as possible and maintaining a distance of two metres from other people if you go out.
