  • Netizens can relate to the Duchess of Cornwall regarding losing track of time while in quarantine

Camilla Parker Bowles made a very relatable blunder during a recent interview.

Just recently, the Duchess of Cornwall spoke with comedian and author David Walliams over video chat to discuss writing during the lockdown. They also wanted to encourage the people to join the Queen’s Commonwealth essay competition.

During their conversation, the duchess asked the “Britain’s Got Talent” judge if his 7-year-old son inherited his talent in writing.

“He’s coming up with ideas for stories all the time. I mean, they come thick and fast. So he’s really into that and really into stories. He tends to choose other writers rather than me…” Walliams answered.

When Camilla asked how he was doing, Walliams told the royal that he was doing good and was keeping himself busy writing.

“Well it’s never a better time, I think, to be writing or reading than this time. And I find, personally, that when I do creative work, it passes the time beautifully,” he added.

Camilla went on and discussed the essay competition but made a mistake when she mentioned the date it was launched.

“I actually launched it in New Zealand this year,” the duchess said but then corrected herself after sounding unsure.

“Well, it wasn’t this year. God, I’ve lost track of time. It was last year. The year before I launched it in Ghana and it was very interesting the response I got. The entries doubled,” she continued.

Camilla’s mistake was actually common, and many can relate to the duchess. In fact, several netizens have admitted on Twitter that they also lost track of time while on lockdown.

“Am I the only one who is losing track of time in lockdown?” one asked on Twitter.

“Am I the only one who’s losing track of time during quarantine?? it seriously feels like a day has gone by but really it’s been a week..like wtf,” @fatmaa__38 shared.

“It feels like a day has gone by, but really it’s been a week,” @awepixies added.
