Camilla plays wordle with her granddaughter every day

The Duchess of Cornwall has revealed that she plays Wordley with her granddaughter every day in a rare, highly personal interview. During a lengthy conversation with British Vogue, Camilla gave intimate details about being a grandmother, balancing royal duties with her marriage to the Prince of Meczyki, and turning three-quarters of a century the following month.

The Duchess, who will celebrate her 75th birthday on July 17, spoke with Giles Hattersley of the magazine at Clarence House in London over a cup of tea and Duchy biscuits, which she shares with Charles. Camilla will also guest-edit Country Life to mark her birthday, and an upcoming ITV documentary will provide an insight into her work in the magazine.

The future queen consort told British Vogue that she enjoys texting with her five grandchildren, who are between the ages of 12 and 14. “I do Wordle every day with my granddaughter,” she said, revealing a fondness for online five-letter word puzzles.

“She’ll text me to say, ‘I’ve done it in three’, and I’ll say, ‘Sorry, I did it in two today.’ It’s so satisfying when it tells you how talented you are. It’s great to get texted.

“We learn from very young people and they also learn from us. It’s always been like that.”

Camilla’s son Tom Parker Bowles has a daughter named Lola and son Freddy, while their daughter Laura Lopes has three children – Eliza, Gus and Louie. The Duchess said she sometimes enjoys spoiling them by giving them “more of the things their parents forbade them”.

She also revealed that she takes one of her grandchildren from school to her Wiltshire home. “Girls are starting to get into clothes and makeup and, you know, it’s horrifying when you see them, ears pierced and come out with a lot of new makeup and weird colored hair and stuff,” He added. ,

Camilla said that her grandson wants her to get her ears pierced for her birthday but she will not listen. Speaking about the milestone birthday, she said: “I would be very happy to turn back the clock.

“When you reach any great number, whether it’s 30, 50, 70, you think: ‘God, that’s too old.’ You know, my mom died when she was 72, so I’ve left my mom behind, which is weird enough.

Asked if there were advantages to being in your 70s, he said: “Well, I guess there’s not much you can do about yourself. You’ve done what you can. I guess That you simply accept that you are who you are.

“You turn 75.”

He said there “won’t be much celebration” for his birthday, which will be spent with family and a small group of friends. The Duchess also opened up about her handling of the press scrutiny since the 1990s.

She said: “It’s not easy. I was scrutinized for so long that you just have to find a way to live with it.

“No one likes to be seen all the time and, you know, criticized and… but I think in the end, I rise above it and move on with it.”

Camilla said balancing royal work with their wedding is “sometimes not easy” but she and Charles make sure to “sit down together, have a cup of tea and discuss the day”.

She said: “You know, when we’re gone, the best part is that we actually sit in different corners of the same room reading our books.”

An avid reader, the Duchess said she was amazed when the reading room of her online book club, The Duchess of Cornwall, captured a whopping number on Instagram – now the 138,000 mark. The July issue of British Vogue, including the full interview, is available from 21 June.

Prior to its release, the magazine’s editor-in-chief, Edward Enninful, described Camilla as one of the most “enigmatic” women in the world. Writing on Instagram, she said: “The Duchess may be one of the most recognizable women in the world, but she is also one of its most enigmatic.

“As she approaches another chapter, we are delighted to introduce Vogue with intimate portraits of photographer Jamie Hawksworth. They capture not only a moment in time but a moment in history as well.”

The Spoon Gold TV and ITV documentary by award-winning director Michael Waldman — called Camilla’s Country Life — accompanies the Duchess as she plans an overseas special edition of the magazine for her 125th year.

ITV controller of Factual Joe Clinton-Davis said the documentary will show Camilla “closer in quarters” as she invites writers to discover her passions and meet with charity workers.

Ms Clinton-Davis said: “The film presents a unique opportunity to gain an insight into the Duchess of Cornwall, in close quarters, steeped in her personal passions and connecting with some of her closest people.”
