Camilla Parker Bowles Makes Confession About What She Was ‘Ashamed’ to Admit During Lockdown
Millions of people around the world had to find new ways of doing things amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and that included the royal family.
Prince Charles’ wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall admitted that she had to embrace something she “hated” and knew nothing about prior to the lockdowns. Read on to find out what that was and how she feels about it now.
Prince Charles and Camilla had to self-isolate
In March, Prince Charles tested positive for the coronavirus.
Clarence House confirmed the news in a statement that read, “The Prince of Wales has tested positive for coronavirus. He has been displaying mild symptoms but otherwise remains in good health…It is not possible to ascertain from whom the prince caught the virus owing to the high number of engagements he carried out in his public role during recent weeks.”
Camilla did not test positive but on the advice of doctors, she self-isolated from her husband for 14 days.
Camilla says she ‘hated’ and ‘didn’t understand’ this essential tool
When the duke and duchess got back to work things were quite different than they once were. They had to either postpone all their in-person meetings or conducted them via video. This was also true when it came to connecting with their family and it’s something Camilla had to get used because she wasn’t very good with technology and disliked the internet.
“I’m ashamed to say that I really hated the internet,” The Express quoted her as saying. “I didn’t understand it and thought, ‘what’s the point of this?’”
Eventually though she adapted and now feels a lot differently revealing that “Since lockdown, it’s been so brilliant because I’ve been able to communicate with family, my children, [and] my friends.”
How many children and grandchildren the duchess has
Following her marriage to Prince Charles, the Duchess of Cornwall became a stepmother to Princes William and Harry and is now a step-grandmother to Prince George, Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis, and Archie Harrison. She also has two children with her first husband, Andrew Parker Bowles, and five grandchildren.
Her son, Tom Parker Bowles, was born on Dec. 18, 1974, and is a food critic who has authored several cookbooks. He married a fashion editor and today has two kids of his own.
Camilla and Andrew’s daughter, Laura, was born on Jan. 1, 1978. She co-founded an art gallery in 2005 and in 2006 married former Calvin Klein model, Harry Lopes. They have three children together.
Hello! noted that during an ITV interview in June, the duchess stated that she finally got to see her grandkids for the first time since the lockdown, However, the family still practiced social distancing.
“First time last weekend, not hug them but see them, it was a great treat,” she said.
