The Duchess of Cornwall has admitted her biggest difficulty in lockdown in a new video.

What did the Duchess of Cornwall say is her biggest struggle?

Camilla said while discussing the launch of this year's Queen’s Commonwealth Essay Competition with author David Walliams, "I actually launched it in New Zealand this year.

"Well, it wasn’t this year. God, I’ve lost track of time. It was last year.

"The year before I launched it in Ghana and it was very interesting the response I got, the entries doubled.

"I hope this year they treble or quadruple."

This comes after husband Charles' son, Prince William, opened up about his own experience while thanking those working on the frontline.

He said, "From my time with the air ambulance, I know all too well how determined frontline workers are to put a brave face on and keep going.

“I wanted to say a huge thank you from myself and Catherine for all that you are doing to keep everyone safe.

“You and your families are making huge sacrifices and we want you to know that the whole country is enormously proud of you.

"The challenges you are facing, day in and day out, are unprecedented.

“Even in normal circumstances, frontline work can take its toll, not just on your physical health but also on your mental wellbeing.”

Recalling his own experience, the Duke added, “When you spend all day taking care of others, it is easy to forget that you need to take care of yourself too.

“But it is okay to say when you aren’t okay.”

He added, “And there is support available to you, if and when you need it."
