The Duchess of Cornwall will discuss closed life, miss her grandchildren, and how Charles is the fittest man she knows for his age in an upcoming radio interview.
72-year-old Camilla covers a wide range of topics as she performs her first-ever radio guest adaptation on BBC Radio 5 Live’s The Emma Barnett Show on Tuesday.
The Duchess will tell how her husband, the Prince of Wales, remains in good shape despite suffering from Covid-19 earlier this year.
In a pre-recorded segment of the show, Camilla will say, ‘He’s probably the fittest man his age I know. He will walk and walk and walk. He’s like a mountain goat, leaving everyone miles behind. ‘

The Duchess will also talk about missing her grandchildren while closing and how she will “look forward to the day” when she can embrace them.
“You’re so excited because you haven’t seen them for three and a half months … Your first reaction is to run over to them and hug them, and raise your hands a little. It is a very strange feeling, “she will say.
On taking out the corona virus, Camilla talks about her love for jeans and how she familiarized herself with online video conference calling.
She will say, “I’m ashamed to say I really hated the internet. I didn’t understand and thought, “What’s the point of this?”.

“It’s been so brilliant since it closed because I’ve been able to communicate with family, my kids, my friends.
“But it also teaches children … otherwise children who are not in school would have done what without?”
Her radio film will also cover domestic violence, her passion to raise awareness about the problem and her involvement in the SafeLives charity.
Speaking of how she got involved with the domestic violence charity, Camilla recalls a story about a man who used a hammer to kill his wife.
The royal also opens up about missing her grandchildren and says she is ‘looking forward’ to the day she can hug them again in the new interview, which airs Tuesday
“I don’t think any of us could believe what we heard. I felt tears trickle down my face, “says the Duchess.
“It was so moving and horrifying that I then met her mother, a grandmother who had taken care of the children.
“I just remember saying to her,” I don’t know what I can do, but if anything, I promise I’ll try to find a way. ” That’s how it really started. ‘
Prince Charles previously said that contracting coronavirus was ‘one of the best things that could have happened’ because it made him more empathetic and boosted his social media
The royal has said he was “lucky” with “relatively mild symptoms” of Covid-19 after positive tests in March.

He was diagnosed with Covid-19 after a test on the NHS in Aberdeenshire.
Last month, he opened up about his deadly infection brush in an interview with Sky News for their series After The Pandemic: Our New World. He told royal correspondent Rhiannon Mills, “I was lucky in my case and got away with it quite lightly. But I’ve had it and I can understand what other people have been through. ‘
Fortunately, he only suffered from what was described as “mild” symptoms and continued to work.
Royal sources said the prince was “in good health” during his illness and that his self-isolation lasted seven days “in accordance with government and medical guidelines.”
Prince Charles and Camilla were locked up in their Birkhall home in Aberdeenshire for three months at the start of the pandemic
Despite the mild nature of his brush with the virus, Prince Charles revealed it helped him empathize with others during the pandemic.
He explained, “I can’t tell you how much I’ve been through the way everyone has been through this incredibly trying and challenging time.
He added, “I particularly feel for those who lost their loved ones and couldn’t be with them at the time. That is the most horrible thing to me. ‘
At the time, Camilla completed two weeks of isolation at the Scottish residence of the Birkhall couple, each of them in different parts of the 305-year-old building, before being reunited in April.

The Daily Mail also revealed how Camilla had become an avid user of the Houseparty video chat program that allowed up to eight users to talk at the same time.
Clearly, Camilla’s children, Tom Parker Bowles and Laura Lopes, who have five children between them, are desperately missed during the closing.
Royal biographer Penny Juror told The Sunday Times that Prince Charles’ fight against the virus “has enabled him to understand people who are going through terrible times” and “show leadership.”
The royal couple have now left Aberdeenshire and are again engaged in personal engagements (see photo, attending a ceremony at Carlton Gardens commemorating the 80th anniversary of General de Gaulle’s speech in Appel)
“That he contracted the virus is one of the best things that could have happened,” she said.
“It reflects the Queen Mother and King George VI who were able to stand shoulder to shoulder with the public during World War II after Buckingham Palace was bombed.”
She added that more people have “seen and listened to” Charles during the lockdown – and that he has used his platform well throughout the pandemic.
The Emma Barnett Show can be seen on BBC Radio 5 Live every Monday through Thursday from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM.
