The Duchess of Cornwall has embraced the social media world of TikTok thanks to her grandchildren – while the Prince of Wales reads to youngsters and puts all the voices in, she revealed.
Camilla gave a newspaper interview in which she laments that family meals are a thing of the past and everyone is now on “their devices”.
Speaking to the Daily Mail, the Duchess, who celebrates her 75th birthday on Sunday, said: ‘Families don’t sit down anymore, do they, and have dinner.
The Duchess has five grandchildren, through her children Tom Parker Bowles and Laura Lopes, and is known by the nickname GaGa.
The newspaper reported during the pandemic that she used Houseparty, the social networking service for group video chats, to talk to young people and they taught their royal grandmother how to use the video-sharing app TikTok .
But she described the social media world the younger generation has embraced as a “double-edged sword”.
In the interview, which will be published in full on Saturday, the Duchess describes how Charles is the fun grandfather who reads his favorite children’s stories to Camilla’s grandchildren and the children of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge – and puts funny voices.
