ITV News royal correspondent Chris Ship revealed in a tweet that the future king of England had called his two sons to tell them the news. Mr. Ship wrote in a post: “Prince Charles spoke to his two sons. “William in Norfolk and Harry in Canada.”
The last time William and Harry saw their father, they were in Commonwealth service at Westminster Abbey on March 9.
The two princes are now in detention with their families as they seek to overcome the coronavirus pandemic.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge moved from Kensington Palace in London to their country house, Anmer Hall, with their three children.
Meanwhile, Harry and Meghan are safely settled in their home on Vancouver Island, alongside their baby, Archie.
Clarence House revealed on Wednesday that the Duke of Cornwall tested positive for COVID-19 and self-isolated with the Duchess of Cornwall, who was negative for the virus.

A statement from Clarence House read as follows: “In accordance with government and medical advice, the Prince and Duchess are now isolated in their homes in Scotland.
“The tests were carried out by the NHS in Aberdeenshire, where they met the criteria for the tests.

Charles and Camilla are now believed to remain in Scotland for at least the next two weeks while he recovers from his symptoms.
A spokesman for Prime Minister Boris Johnson said he was informed on Tuesday of the positive result of the prince’s test and wished him “a speedy recovery”.
The spokesman added that the PM’s weekly hearing with the Queen was now held by telephone.
The news of Charles’s infection was not greeted with sympathy by everyone.
Many people were angry that Charles had traveled to Scotland and flouted the strict government rules to avoid unnecessary travel.
In particular, the heir to the throne was charged with helping to spread the deadly coronavirus.
Famous Scottish sports journalist Derek Rae wrote on Twitter: “Like everyone who has COVID-19, wishing Prince Charles a speedy recovery.
“But it is perfectly legitimate to wonder why he and his advisers thought that it was not foolhardy to go to Balmoral last weekend, at a time when advice from the Scottish government (or common sense) said opposite.”
Another posted: “Why does Prince Charles think it’s ok to have Covid-19 and decide to TRAVEL BY RAF HELICOPTER TO BALMORAL?”
“RAF staff and Balmoral staff are in danger. Thank you for bringing the virus to Aberdeen! “
