"the sunday times" also claiming the prince agreed to the donation despite several of his advisers allegedly pleading with him to return the money. warning, it would cause national outrage if the news leaked to the media. >> fundamentally i think that this has been naive at best and stupid at worst. these revelations, although not illegal, don't actually help his reputation, and damage the monarchy in the long-term. >> reporter: the prince's office clarence house confirming the donation was made but denying

that prince charles brokered it. in a statement saying, the charitable fund has assured us that thorough due diligence was undertaken in accepting this donation. the decision to accept was taken by the charity's trustees alone. any attempt to characterize it otherwise is false. as prince charles steps further into the spotlight taking over responsibilities from the queen, these new allegations coming on the heels of another scandal. reports surfaced that prince charles' charity accepted more than $3 million of cash in suitcases from a qatari billionaire over the last decade. dubbed the cash in bags controversy, the charity commission reviewed this claim, deciding that no further action would be taken and no investigation would be launched. since it appears there was nothing illegal about that donation from the osama bin laden family, no investigation has been announced. but it's the optics around that donation that could cause the most harm. gys? >> thank you, maggie. coming up, celebrating actress nichelle nichols, from "star trek," to nasa.

8:07 am
right now i want to be clear. this is a rapidly evolving and dynamically changing situation. 99% of the cases thus far have been in gay men, but there is concern that that could change. so the groups the cdc want people to understand may be at higher risk -- people are compromised immune systems like uncontrolled hiv or dealing with cancer treatments, pregnant women, not necessarily for them, but the risk of transmission to the fetus, and then children under the age of 8. and again, people's radars needs to be up for this. >> without a doubt. if you're a parent of a young child, or children, what should you look out for? what are the signs and symptoms? >> for everyone, right now, the overall risk is low, but again, as we test more we'll see more cases. so signs and symptoms of monkeypox, it starts with headaches, body aches, fever, flu-like symptoms. also could feel like another virus, covid. then the characteristic painful
