Archduke of Austria, First Known Royal To Test Positive For Coronavirus

Karl von Habsburg, the Archduke of Austria, was the first known royal to test positive for coronavirus.

The 59-year-old head of the House of Habsburg-Lorraine called into Austrian TV channel oe24, revealing he experienced flu-like symptoms more than a week ago.

“It’s annoying, but I’m fine. It’s not the Black Plague,” von Habsburg said.

“I thought it was the usual flu. When a friend called me that he had a positive test at a congress in Switzerland, I was also tested,” the Archduke said.
