“In accordance with Government and medical advice, the prince and the duchess are now self-isolating at home in Scotland.

“The tests were carried out by the NHS in Aberdeenshire where they met the criteria required for testing.”

Buckingham Palace said the Queen remains in good health and is following all appropriate advice.
