Prince Charles, 71, and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, 72, will come out of lockdown next week. The heir apparent and his wife will travel from Birkhall in Scotland down to the capital after spending three months there due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Prince Charles spent seven days self-isolating in Scotland at the end of March after testing positive for COVID-19 and displaying mild symptoms.
The Duchess of Cornwall was also tested but did not have the virus.
The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall will be the first members of the Royal family to leave lockdown.
The couple will attend a major even when they welcome French President Emmanuel Macron to London next Thursday.
A spokesperson for Prime Minister Boris Johnson has confirmed Mr Macron will be exempt from quarantine.
The spokesperson said: “As we set out in the guidelines when they were published, the French delegation will fall within the exempted category of representatives of a foreign country or territory travelling to undertake business in the UK.”
Clarence House said in a statement: “The President of the French Republic will visit London on Thursday, June 18, 2020 to celebrate the 80th Anniversary of General de Gaulle’s ‘Appel’ to the French population to resist the German occupation of France during WWII.
“On behalf of Her Majesty’s Government, Their Royal Highnesses The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall will formally receive President Emmanuel Macron at Clarence House with a Guard of Honour found by Number 7 Company Coldstream Guards accompanied by the Band of the Coldstream Guards.”

The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall are allowed to travel back to London as the event can’t be done from home.
The Government guidelines say anyone who cannot work from home can return to work if it is safe.
However, despite an easing of lockdowns around the UK, people are advised not to travel between Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
