Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall and wife of Prince Charles, shared her exercise regime on a video call interview recently and explained that is includes Pilates and ballet.
While in lockdown, Camilla and her husband marked their 15th wedding anniversary. Like many, they are missing their grandchildren but remain determined to keep supporting their charities.
Adjusting to life in lockdown along with much of the world, Camilla joined in a chat with broadcaster Angela Rippon CBE and Dame Darcey Bussell. The online chat was to mark the occasion of becoming vice-patron of the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD), which she visited in 2018.
During that visit, the Duchess observed a Silver Swan ballet class for over 55’s and revealed on the call that she has been taking part in their online classes. As well as trying out some ballet, the 72-year-old also enjoys some Pilates and plenty of walking. Speaking about her fitness routine she explained:
“We have all got to keep active because if we don’t we will seize up, we won’t be able to get out of bed. It doesn’t matter if it is 10 minutes or 20 minutes, it just starts off the day. I do a combination of a bit of Silver Swans, a bit of Pilates and a lot of walking, which I love.”
Regardless of your age, Pilates is a great way to stay strong and supple. With classes all over the country from Preston to Rochdale, you will be able to find an instructor and class to suit you as soon as the time is right.
