GMB’s Kate Garraway admits coronavirus fears after Prince Charles meeting
Good Morning Britain host Kate Garraway admitted she was scared she'd contracted coronavirus during her meet with Prince Charles at the National Prince's Trust Awards.
It was announced by Prince Charles and Clarence House that the Prince of Wales had tested positive for Covid-19 yesterday.
GMB stars Kate Garraway and Ben Shepard sparked concern on today's show after they admitted they were worried about their health after meeting Prince Charles last month.
The TV presenters spoke to Royal commentator Emily Andrews, with Ben asking whether the prince will be contacting the people he's greeted recently.
Ben said: "Kate and I actually met Prince Charles, of course, at the National Prince's Trust Awards."
With Kate quickly adding: "Yes, but we didn't shake hands, Emily, but we were very close."
Fans flocked to Twitter, questioned whether Kate and Ben should be on the show if they met with Prince Charles weeks ago.
One said: "Kate Garraway should be self isolating after being that close to prince Charles."
While another wrote: "Should Kate Garraway be at work? She has an eye infection which in some reports has been linked to Covid-19. Dr Hilary is there any truth in this? She has been in close contact with Prince Charles a confirmed case?"
Emily quickly calmed down Ben and Kate's fears.
The Royal commentator said that it is very unlikely that they were at risk form infection.

She explained: "Charles, like the Queen, has a doctor on standby at all times.
"And his doctor ascertained from talking to Prince Charles, he thinks he wasn't infected pre March 13."
Emily while giggling: "So, you guys are in the clear!"
