Duchess of Cornwall Says She Misses Hugging Her Grandkids during Self-Isolation

Duchess Camilla of Cornwall admits that she misses hugging her grandchildren while trying to work from home during this self-isolation period.

A hug, a warm embrace from a loved one, or a gentle pat on the back are some of the little things that matter, which people may not cherish.

But with the lockdown and self-isolation raging one, there have been restrictions of movements, and the little things one would typically engage in might now seem like a privilege.

Duchess of Cornwall Camilla, who recently came out from self-isolation after about two weeks, is happy to be out but misses certain things.

According to a Daily Mail report, the Duchess expressed that this period of isolation has helped her realize that she misses hugging her grandchildren and having them around.

The Duchess had to go into self-isolation following the diagnosis of her husband after he contracted the virus, although she did not show any symptoms of the viral infection.

Camilla, who has been in her Scotland home with Prince Charles, has been keeping busy by working from home while trying to catch up with her family and grandkids, via video calls.

As patron of the Royal Voluntary Service, Camilla thanked those who volunteered, stating that she salutes them and was proud of what they were doing at this time when the country needed the most.

Camilla has been using the popular app "House Party," to stay in contact with her children, grandchildren, and sister.

To honor what the group is about, the Duchess surprised an 85-year-old pensioner — Doris Winfield — by placing a call across to her, asking how she was coping being without her family in this period of self-isolation.

Doris, who is a mother of three, had been separated from her children who can not visit her during this period, which has proven to be lonely. Speaking of her chat with the Duchess, Doris said:

"I've been incredibly lonely over the last couple of weeks, and it was wonderful to talk to her."

Rebecca English, the Royal Editor for the "Daily Mail," welcomed the Duchess by adequately describing the area where she worked and how it deeply reflected the things that Camilla holds dear.

The work area, which is a large room with a bookshelf filled with books like Harry Porter, memoirs and children books, also has pictures of the Duchess' family strewn around it.

While it might seem like quite a long and trying time, it is comforting to know that even the Duchess aches for hugs and family time with her loved ones, proving that everyone is in this fight together.
