Prince Charles & Camilla also did the ‘clap for carers’ thing in isolation in Scotland

Prince Charles, Prince of Wales and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall attend the annual Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall on November 09, 2019 in London, England.

I bet the Duchess of Cornwall is probably pretty good in a crisis and in a quarantine. I bet she keeps calm and pours herself a stiff drink and keeps everybody’s spirits up while also having a very good bedside manner. The problem this week is that Camilla and Prince Charles are being kept separately – he tested positive for the coronavirus and she tested negative. I have no idea how that works, because they’ve been isolating together for about two weeks, first in Highgrove and currently in Birkhall, in Scotland.

We’ve heard that Charles is doing okay, but he took the test in the first place because he was having cold-like symptoms, so who knows how he’s doing at the moment. The bad cases of corona seem to start out as a cold-like illness before it gets a lot worse. Thankfully, we’re getting one small glimpse at Charles and Camilla’s isolated-from-each-other life in Birkhall. Clarence House posted an IG Story thanking the healthcare workers and carers. There was a movement to “clap for carers” and “thank you NHS” – that’s why the Cambridge children clapped in the video posted to KensingtonRoyal social media. I would have loved to have seen this as an IG post, but all we could get was a blurry screen-grab from the IG Story:

I guess Charles doesn’t own a pair of sweatpants? Lord, the man is Covid-positive and he’s still wearing a sport coat. And Camilla clapping from an open window is… interesting. Anyway, best wishes to them.

      OHHH That is one of my gossip dreams.
      Getting drunk with Camilla!

    • Flamingo says:

      I’d love to be friends with Camilla. She seems like a lot of fun and doesn’t seem to take things too seriously.

    • damejudi says:

      She seems like she’d be the British equivalent of the Olympia Dukakis character in Steel Magnolias.

    • MeghanNotMarkle says:

      This is one of my dream to-do’s. Have a drink with Camilla.

  2. Digital Unicorn says:

  4. Ali says:

    Ah Charles and Camilla.

    Why did they go to Scotland again?

  5. Sarah says:

    In spite of their terrible recent choices (just referencing this crisis) I’m so pleased they joined in with this. The guidance was to clap from your doors and windows and nearly our whole street came out. There was a huge response right across the uk.

    • Becks1 says:

      Thanks for the bit about the doors/windows, that puts Camilla in context. I think it seemed like a really good idea in terms of showing support.

  6. Lisa says:

    Smart pr.

  7. Bella DuPont says:

    Didn’t the Sussexes promote this “clap for carers” thing on their IG?

  8. Mel M says:

    I’m just wondering who is taking care of Charles and what are they wearing? Do they have all the PPE while serving him in that place? They aren’t medical so this is not something they have any experience with on how to avoid getting a highly contagious deadly disease. You know he isn’t making his own food, doing his own laundry, and just general housekeeping.

  9. MeghanNotMarkle says:

    Camilla has always struck me as a hoot-and-a-half. I would love to have a drink with her someday.

    • Golly Gee says:

      First time I read your post, I thought it said “Camilla has always struck me as a hoof-and-a-half.” LOL!

    Sorry at this time I don’t find anyone in that ‘family’ a hoot. I remember when the reporter asked Camilla if they would miss Harry and she paused and then said hmmm, yes. Quite snarky and NO support shown whatsoever. All this when William AND Harry were used as PR porn to get the public to accept her as Charles new wife.
    I think she has had tremendous amount of spin dr work.
