The Duchess of Cornwall shared her insights into her husband’s health, while appearing on BBC Radio 5’s The Emma Barnett Show in July last year. Prince Charles’ health became a topic of national concern, after he contracted Covid-19 at the start of the pandemic in March. However, he made a quick recovery, telling Sky News that he had “got away with it quite lightly”.
Camilla told her host: “He is probably the fittest man of his age I know.
“He’ll walk and walk and walk.
“He’s like a mountain goat, he leaves everybody miles behind.”
Stuart Roberts told the Daily Telegraph that Charles’ fitness was a good example of how exercise can help slow down the body’s ageing process.
The author of “Get Strong, Get Fit, Get Happy: A Life Manual for 40+” said: “I think one of the main problems with people when they view fitness at any age past 50 is there’s this mental block.
“People tend to think that because they’re a certain age they just can’t do things anymore.
“Unfortunately, if you think like that, your body tends to follow your mind.”
