The future queen consort told British Vogue that she loves texting with her five grandchildren, aged 12 to 14.

“I do Wordle every day with my granddaughter,” she said, revealing a fondness for the online five-letter puzzle.

“She’ll text me saying, ‘I did it in three,’ and I’ll say, ‘Sorry, I did it in two today.’ It’s very satisfying when it tells you how brilliant you are.

“It’s very nice to receive a text message.

“We learn from the very young and they also learn from us. That’s how it’s always been.

Camilla’s son Tom Parker Bowles has a daughter named Lola and a son Freddy, while her daughter Laura Lopes has three children – Eliza, Gus and Louis.

The Duchess said she likes to spoil them from time to time by giving them “more things that their parents forbid them to have”.

She also revealed that she was picking up one of her grandchildren from school near her home in Wiltshire.

“The girls are starting to dress up and put on make-up and, you know, it’s kind of scary when you see them walking out with pierced ears and a lot of new make-up and hair and fun color stuff,” a- she added. .

Camilla said her grandchildren wanted her to get her ears pierced for her birthday, but she won’t be convinced.

She added that there “won’t be many celebrations” for her birthday, which will be with her family and a small circle of friends.

Camilla said balancing royal work with her marriage is ‘not easy sometimes’ but she and Charles make sure to ‘sit down together and have a cup of tea and chat about the day’.

She said, “You know, when we leave, the best thing is that we sit and read our books in different corners of the same room.”

The July issue of British Vogue, which includes the full interview, is available from June 21.
