The Duchess of Cornwall has taken to social media to share a particularly poignant message in what she described as an “extremely challenging time”. Throughout the pandemic, Duchess Camilla has maintained her commitment to royal duties. Restrictions throughout last year and so far in 2021 have meant in-person royal engagements are often not possible.
However, like many other members of the Royal Family, Duchess Camilla has found other ways to connect with people. Utilizing social media, she has continued to show support and understanding to so many.
Marking World Cancer Day yesterday, the Duchess of Cornwall shared an incredibly moving message. In a post made on the official Clarence House Instagram page, Duchess Camilla addressed the challenges faced by those living with cancer at this incredibly difficult time.

The Duchess of Cornwall has been President of Maggie's since 2008. This vital charity helps support people with cancer, their family and friends in centers across the UK and abroad. Last year Duchess Camilla’s husband Prince Charles also spoke out to address his concerns about the impact the pandemic could be having on cancer treatment.
Writing a deeply poignant piece for The Telegraph, the Prince of Wales - who is a Patron of MacMillan Cancer Support - discussed concerns about cancer becoming “the Forgotten C". He also praised the British people's 'formidable will and compassion'.
‘Compassion, we have learned, has not become fatigued; it has strengthened with use’, Prince Charles wrote.
