Even royals enjoy a good viral video—just ask Prince Charles.
The Prince of Wales recently suggested he’s been watching a few funny clips amid social distancing. The 71-year-old royal shared the interesting tidbit in a piece he penned for Country Life that was published on Wednesday.
“At a time of great anxiety and loss, the courage and selflessness of all those involved in the medical and caring professions have been truly humbling,” His Royal Highness wrote at the beginning of the article “Beyond the walls of the hospitals, care homes, doctors’ surgeries and pharmacies, we have also seen a heart-warming burgeoning of remarkable kindness and concern for those in need across the country. Younger people shopping for older folk, some making regular telephone calls to those living alone, Church services recorded and emailed to parishioners and, of course, we have seen the very best use of technology—allowing us to keep working, but also to keep in touch through virtual parties, games, singing—and some of the funniest videos I have seen for a long time! In such testing times, it is reassuring to see that adversity is bringing out the very best in people.”
