Camilla Parker Bowles recently took part in an interview with BBC Morning Live, where she got super candid about her mother's experience with osteoporosis. Although the full interview won't premiere until tomorrow morning (October 25), a clip was posted to the Instagram account that Parker Bowles shares with her husband, Prince Charles.
In the video, the Duchess of Cornwall discusses the importance of raising awareness around osteoporosis and its effects, saying, “My mother I think went to see everybody you could possibly think of and they all said the same thing: ‘Sorry, you're old.’ And we just watched her shrinking before our eyes.”
When interviewer Gloria Hunniford asked what it was like to witness that pain, the duchess said, “It was terrible because we didn't know anything about it, so at some point we thought: ‘Well, is she making a great fuss about all this?’” But they soon learned the severity of the situation, with Parker Bowles explaining that “Occasionally when she moved or you touched her, she literally screamed and I remember when a friend of hers came in one day just to give her a hug, her rib broke. It was as bad as that.”
