Camilla speaks on how she keep marriage to Prince Charles strong, concerns for grandkids, and secret Wordle addiction

Camilla has spoken out about how she keeps her marriage to Prince Charles strong, her concerns for her grandkids, and her secret Wordle addiction.

In a new tell-all interview with British Vogue, the Duchess of Cornwall revealed a fascinating behind-the-scenes glimpse at her royal existence.

The 74-year-old, who has spent most of her life in the public glare, opened up about her life and how she keeps her connection with the future King going.

Despite their extremely hectic schedules, she and her spouse always strive to make time for one other, she told the magazine.

Camilla said balancing work with her marriage is ‘not easy sometimes’ but she and her husband of 17 years make sure to ‘sit down together and have a cup of tea and discuss the day’.

‘You know, the loveliest thing about going away is that we actually sit and read our books in various corners of the same room,’ she said.

She told the magazine that the first few years of her relationship with the prince were “not easy” because of the public’s harsh reaction.

‘I was scrutinized for such a long period that you simply have to find a way to live with it,’ she told Vogue. Nobody enjoys being scrutinized and judged all of the time. But, in the end, I think I’m able to rise above it and move on. ‘You have to get on with your life.’

Her popularity has grown in the nearly two decades since, and the Queen announced earlier this year that she wants her new daughter-in-law to be Queen Consort when Charles becomes King.

Camilla gave the interview ahead of her 75th birthday later this year, telling a photographer that she was sorry he had to photograph a “old bat.”

She values family, and her Clarence House desk is adorned with images of loved ones, including one of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on their wedding day.

Camilla has five grandkids from her son and daughter, Tom and Laura, whom she had with her ex-husband, in addition to her royal step-grandchildren.

She claims to spoil her grandchildren, who range in age from 12 to 14, but admits to being surprised by them at times.

‘The girls are starting to get into clothes and make-up, and it’s kind of scary seeing them come out with pierced ears and a lot of new make-up and funny-colored hair and stuff,’ she said.

She went on to say that she compares her Wordle score with her granddaughter every day, and that she enjoys it because it “tells you how bright you are,” boasting that she had previously received a score of two.

She also discussed the work that domestic violence groups that she supports perform to assist women in violent relationships throughout the discussion.

‘I think we all know somebody who it’s happened to,’ Camilla said.

‘I was hearing it too often, from friends who knew friends, and I thought maybe I ought to look into it to see if there was somewhere for me to help.

‘There’s been such a taboo. People can still love the people that abuse them, and feel such guilt and such shame that they think it’s their fault, so they bury it.

‘It becomes a sort of terrible hidden secret.’

Camilla said she would continue supporting domestic abuse charities following her ascension to Queen Consort because ‘you can’t desert things that you’re in the middle of’.

She added that as a feminist she loves to see women gaining confidence before they ‘fly the flag’ for their gender.
