Duchess Camilla has come out of self-isolation and immediately joined the NHS volunteer army - but you might have missed an adorable detail in her office.
- The Duchess of Cornwall had been self-isolating in Scotland following Prince Charles’s coronavirus diagnosis.
- As the head of the Royal Voluntary Service [RVS], she has now joined the many NHS volunteers across the country.
- This follows royal news that Prince Charles made history when he opened the Nightingale Hospital in London.
The duchess was finally reunited with husband Charles after spending 14 days in isolation at their Scottish home, Birkhall, where they are staying during lockdown.
But it wasn’t long before she was back to work, by reaching out to those currently isolated amid the coronavirus pandemic.
If you look closely, you’ll see paper cut-out dolls of the royal family on the second shelf on the right.
The dolls include Camilla herself, alongside her husband Prince Charles, the Queen and Prince Philip, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, their children George and Charlotte and Prince Harry.
What a sweet reminder of her family during these off times!
What is Duchess Camilla doing with the NHS?
She called Doris Winfield, 85, to talk about the struggles of being separated from her family.
Doris said, ‘Having a chat with the Duchess of Cornwall meant the world to me.
‘I’ve been incredibly lonely over the last couple of weeks and it was wonderful to talk to her.
‘We talked about life in isolation and shared hobbies.
‘She was very interested in my family and how I was coping. It has really cheered me up.’
Duchess Camilla also thanked the 750,000 RVS NHS Volunteer Responders who have signed up to start work today helping 2.5 million people at risk.
She said, ‘The RVS has been working with the NHS to recruit people in England who can assist those who are most in need of practical and emotional support.
‘Thankfully, the charity has a long and remarkable history of bringing willing volunteers together with the isolated and lonely.
‘That experience is needed more than ever in these challenging times. I salute each one of you – and thank you with all my heart.’
Last week, Prince Charles made history when he opened the specially built Nightingale Hospital in London via video conference from Balmoral.
