Prince Charles is advocating for people who are recovering from COVID-19 to practice yoga. The Prince of Wales believes that this should be part of the roadmap to health, wellness and recovery.
In a virtual appearance for a yoga and healthcare talk, Prince Charles said medical doctors should work together with specialists in complementary healthcare, such as yoga, to address the "health and welfare of the whole person." The Duke of Cornwall emphasized working together since the physical and mental challenges of COVID can be long and devastating. The future king also said that there are approaches to "therapeutic, evidenced-informed yoga" that could help build the society's resilience and healing from COVID-19.
Charles is not the only royal who practices yoga. His wife, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, said that she does yoga as it makes the body less stiff and more supple.
Prince William also does yoga for the benefit of his body and mind and has made this part of his self-care. He said that yoga also helps build discipline and self-reliance. His wife, Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, is also into yoga and other exercise routines to keep her body fit and healthy.
Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, once said that she has been doing yoga since she was a child. Her mother, Doria Ragland, is a yoga instructor in Los Angeles. The duchess has also influenced Prince Harry to try yoga poses.
Meanwhile, Charles, who did have COVID-19 in late March 2021, has been back on the job and attending to his royal duties in person. He and Camilla returned from a two-day visit to Northern Ireland.
The Prince of Wales was also in South London to speak with the small business owners, which have re-opened following the long lockdowns in the United Kingdom. Charles indulged and poured a glass of Sambrook's bitter at one of the local pubs and laughed at himself for struggling to drink with a face mask on.
Charles managed to crack a joke and said that it would likely be fun to go to every pub in the country and get a free drink. Witnesses during the royal visit said that it was good to see the future king happy and about to show the people that it's safe to be in pubs again.
Prince Charles, however, has continued to stay silent amid the accusations coming from Harry, who said on his TV show that the royal family did not do anything when he was struggling to come to terms with his mother's death.
