AceShowbiz - Prince Albert of Monaco has shut down rumours he gave Prince Charles the coronavirus at a Water Aid event earlier this month.
Both royals recently tested positive for COVID-19 and now it has been suggested Albert passed the potentially deadly virus to Charles in London.
"I was at a roundtable for his foundation, but we never shook hands," Prince Albert tells RTL radio. "I was at the other end of the table, way far away.
"We nodded hello to one another, so I don't think I can really be accused of contaminating him. There were a lot of other people around at the congress centre and I know he continued his schedule afterwards for a number of days."
Prince Albert, who became the first head of state to test positive for the coronavirus, insists he's feeling much better and no longer has a fever.
"I cough a little still," he adds. "I hope it’s the end of the tunnel that I’m starting to see."
Clarence House officials confirmed Prince Charles had tested positive for coronavirus earlier this week (begin March 23).
