Camilla will reveal how she has been using the internet to keep in touch with friends and family during the pandemic.
She will say: “I’m ashamed to say that I really hated the internet. I didn’t understand it and I thought, ‘what’s the point of this?’.
“Since lockdown, it’s been so brilliant because I’ve been able to communicate with family, my children, my friends.
“But it’s also taught children … otherwise children who aren’t at school what would they have done without it?”

And Charles’s wife will admit to living in jeans during the lockdown.
She will say: “I’ve been very, very happy with my jeans. It will be very hard to get out of them again. I think you get into a sort of way of life, don’t you?”
Camilla will also discuss domestic violence and her work to raise awareness about the issue.

Speaking about how she became involved with domestic abuse charity SafeLives, she will recall hearing a story about a man who used a hammer to kill his wife.
Camilla will say: “I don’t think any of us could believe what we were hearing. I could feel the tears starting to drip down my face.
“It was so moving and so horrific that afterwards, I met her mother, a grandmother who had taken charge of the children.
“I just remember saying to her that ‘I don’t know what I can do, but if there’s anything, I promise you, I’ll try and find a way’. That’s really how it began.”
