How Camilla Parker Bowles' COVID-19 Diagnosis Is Getting In The Way Of Her Royal Duties

​​The royal family has been hit hard by COVID-19. It was announced that both Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles tested positive for the illness back in February (via the New York Post). This marked the second time the prince contracted the virus. A statement from the royal family — shared with the New York Post — confirmed the news about his wife. "Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cornwall has tested positive for COVID-19 and is self-isolating," it read. The publication noted that the Duke and Duchess were up to date on their vaccines.

The spread of COVID-19 within the royal family didn't stop there. Queen Elizabeth also contracted the virus but recovered fully (via Vanity Fair). She has since resumed her royal duties and was seen enjoying some outdoor time with her grandchildren in early March. The family appears to be on the mend; however, it seems COVID-19 side effects might still be ailing Camilla. She recently eased back on some of her royal duties as she recovers.

Camilla Parker Bowles recently pulled out of an event

According to Page Six, Camilla was supposed to attend an event but canceled, and some think the cancelled plans might have to do with her COVID-19 diagnosis. Royal reporter Richard Palmer updated royal fans from his Twitter account. The tweet read, "The Duchess of Cornwall had been due to attend the Cheltenham Festival today but she has pulled out." He continued, "It's understood she is trying to pace herself as she recovers from the bout of [COVID-19] she had last month."

Several royal reporters noticed that Camilla appeared to be "struggling" during a recent appearance, according to Entertainment Tonight. She chose to opt-out of the Cheltenham Festival after attending a pre-St. Patrick's Day event with Prince Charles at the Irish Cultural Centre in London.

Although she might not be fully recovered from the virus yet, it wasn't all struggle for Camilla at the Irish Cultural Centre. She was seen in "fits of laughter" after her husband struggled to pour a glass of Guinness and found humor in an employee instructing Charles on how to properly serve the beer. "There you go Sir, so you're going to pour one yourself now and tilt it to the side," she said (via Woman & Home).
