Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, 72, and Prince Charles, 71, were reunited in time for their 15th wedding anniversary on April 9 after both having to self-isolate at their Aberdeenshire home, Birchall. The couple have been staying on the Queen’s Balmoral estate since last month when Charles first tested positive for COVID-19.
Prince Charles has since recovered from coronavirus having experienced only mild symptoms and Camilla has been able to rejoin him having self-isolated for 14 days in keeping with Government guidelines.
The couple have remained active on social media despite being unable to appear in public and have kept royal fans in the loop with morale-boosting updates.
As Charles and Camilla mark Easter weekend in lockdown, the Duchess has shared a list of nine book suggestions for Britons isolating at home over the bank holiday.
The list was shared via the couple’s Clarence House Twitter and Instagram accounts and included a sweet tribute to Camilla’s late brother Mark Shand.
The Instagram post read: “Ernest Hemingway, famously, once said ‘There is no friend as loyal as a book’.
“In these challenging times when we are isolated from the ones we love, many of us are finding comfort in reading, to fire up our imaginations, to take us on journeys and to make us laugh.
“With that in mind, here is a list of my dearest ‘friends’. – The Duchess of Cornwall.
“Her Royal Highness has curated a reading list to provide some inspiration to those isolating at home over the Easter weekend.”
