“He [Prince Charles] did speak of his personal experience, so first-hand experience for him. He also spoke about his loss of smell and taste and, sort of, still felt he’s still got it now,” healthcare assistant Jeff Mills shared.

Charles is set to continue his socially distanced royal engagements Thursday and meet with French president Emmanuel Macron at Clarence House, their London residence.

The meeting is to mark the 80th anniversary of General de Gaulle’s “Appel”, in which de Gaulle urged the French to resist the German occupation.

Charles and Camilla have been at their Birkhall home since March when the U.K. government had everyone self-isolate. The couple quarantined separately at first after the Prince of Wales tested positive for the virus.
