The 74-year-old royal was revealed to have tested positive for the virus last month, days after it was announced that her husband Prince Charles had contracted COVID-19 for the second time, and she admitted that she hadn’t been able to get rid of the cough she’s had now for a few weeks.

Speaking to rowers Kat Cordiner, Abby Johnston and Charlotte Irving at an International Women’s Day event at Clarence House on Wednesday, she told them: ‘It’s taken three weeks and I still can’t shoot above. My voice could probably die out suddenly and I could start coughing and sputtering.

Rowers broke the transatlantic record in January when they rowed across the Atlantic in 42 days, seven hours and 17 minutes, raising money for Macmillan, Cancer Research UK and the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity.

The trio told the Duchess about their trip in a 30-minute chat, revealing they suffered from cramps during the trip and struggled to walk straight once they completed their challenge.

They also presented Camilla with a flask and a fleece and Kat – who has cervical cancer – joked that the Duchess “could take up some rowing” after their conversation.

Camilla also came face to face with her “fictional alter ego” on Wednesday.

Emerald Fennell – who played the young Duchess in two seasons of ‘The Crown’ – laughed and joked with the royal during the reception.

But Camilla said she found it “very reassuring” to know that Emerald was among the guests at the reception.

She joked, “For me, it’s very reassuring to know that if I should fall off my perch at any time, my fictional alter ego is there to take over. So, Emerald, get ready!”
