Following yesterday’s confirmation that Prince Albert has tested positive for coronavirus, the palace has issued a letter this afternoon stating that the Prince’s “health, monitored several times a day by his doctors, does not raise any particular concern.”
This first daily update, published on the palace’s Facebook page, included the Sovereign’s handwritten words, “Patience, confidence, courage, solidarity.”
The Prince used the letter also to “thank all the people who have shown him their support.”
“HSH Prince Albert II was touched by the many expressions of sympathy that reached him from around the world.”
As he continues to personally administer the state with his cabinet and his government, the palace letter reaffirmed: “The Prince remains confined to his apartments in the palace. He continues to work with his closest collaborators in compliance with the rules of health precaution.”
As of Friday afternoon, there are 11 confirmed cases of coronavirus in Monaco.
