The Prince of Wales has a strict daily routine which he repeats twice a day. Prince Charles served in the Royal Air Force and Royal Navy from 1971 to 1976.
He believes his time in the military has provided him with the fitness he currently enjoys and that helped hm fight Covid-19 when he contracted the coronavirus back in March.
Along with the Queen and Prince William, he has laid out a roadmap for the Royal Family to return to work once the pandemic is over.
The three royals have been holding virtual meetings and are all “raring to go.”
They dedicated the last weeks to taking to charities to offer their help in person “when given the green light.”
A palace source said: “The Queen has always maintained the family ‘must be seen to be believed’ and this is very much the core belief right now.
“They are all in regular contact over Zoom and FaceTime and have all instructed aides to be fully engaged in scheduling a return public business as soon as possible, but only when the time is right.
“The Prince is chomping at the bit to return as are the rest of the family.
“He feels fit and healthy and undoubtedly his unique experience within the family of having been through the illness is shaping his decisions of how things will look in the future.”
Prince Charles officially opened the NHS Nightingale hospital in East London via video conference on April 3.
A well placed insider said: “There is a lock step in thinking that now, more than ever, the family must have a united front to get them through the crisis and beyond.
“Whether it’s the complete lift and shift of bringing their work into the digital world or working out how they will be best placed to help the country heal after the crisis is over.
“Right from the very top, the plan is to get back to their public facing roles when they are given the green light.”
Palace sources said the new work set-up has prompted him on to schedule Zoom meetings after speaking to Prince William about how The Firm is allowing them to stay in touch their various charities.
A palace source added: “The royal family has shown its ability to evolve quickly into a digital world, they are some of the most familiar faces on Zoom the country has at the moment.
“The work they are doing now is very much to carry on the contact with their relevant organisations and charities.
“They were determined not to let the support for their charities and affiliations slide, just at the moment when they might need them.
“But the overriding feeling is that the real important part of their work is getting out and meeting people and talking to them face to face.
“That is something that has obviously changed immeasurably in the world we are all living in and they all are looking forward, like the rest of the country, to getting back to some form of normality when it is safe to do so.”
