It has been revealed that Duchess Camilla's grandchildren are taking the time to teach their grandmother a new skill that will help modernize the Royal Family from the inside.


Camilla Parker Bowles has two children with her ex-husband Andrew Parker Bowles. Her daughter Laura Lopes has three children, a daughter named Eliza, and fraternal twin boys, Gus and Louis. Camilla's son Tom Parker Bowles, has two children named Lola and Frederick. She is also the stepgrandmother to Prince William's children, George, Charlotte, and Louis, and Prince Harry's children, Archie and Lilibet.

As a proud grandmother to 10 children of various ages, Camilla has revealed that she is not the only one imparting wisdom, as the children are often teaching her new skills. The Duchess of Cornwall referenced a specific skill they have taught her that can help her move the Royal Family into the future. 

"What's so lovely about being a grandmother, they teach you things and hopefully they learn a few things from us! Especially in this generation of social media - which I'm not very good at - my grandchildren are very good at teaching me how to do it," said Camilla.

Camilla shared this lovely skill that her grandchildren are teaching her during a recent visit to a school in Cornwall. The Duchess was touring the school as part of her role as patron of the charity, Silver Stories, which partners school children with elderly people who listen to them read stories.

Speaking about this role and the importance of the charity, Camilla spoke about the importance of connecting the elderly with the youthful generation. "I think it's so important to communicate older people - not old people - and younger people, because I think they have so much in common," said the Duchess.

It's clear that when the Duchess becomes Queen consort, she will be bringing with her the modern skills that she has acquired from her grandchildren, plus the knowledge that connecting with the younger generation is of vital importance if the monarchy is to remain relevant to today's society.
