Charles, Camilla, William and Kate were last pictured in public together at the Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey on 9 March. The coronavirus lockdown was imposed in the UK just a few weeks after, and the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall stayed at their Scottish residence, Birkhall, throughout and have only recently returned to London. Meanwhile, the Cambridges have been residing at their Norfolk country home, Anmer Hall, with their children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince George.

The foursome also joined forces with the Princess Royal, the Countess of Wessex and Princess Alexandra to mark International Nurses' Day during a joint video call in May.

Camilla became William and Harry's step-mother when she married Charles in Windsor in April 2005. The Duchess also has two children from her first marriage to Andrew Parker Bowles – Tom and Laura.
