Prince Charles had been diagnosed with coronavirus earlier in the year and is now in good health. He was asked how it affected his determination to prevent another pandemic in the interview.

“Yes, it makes me even more determined to push and shove and shout and prod, if you see what what I mean. Whatever I can do behind the scenes sometimes…but yes, but I suppose it did, partly, and I was lucky in my case. I got away with it quite lightly,” he said.

“I had it, and I can so understand what other people are going through. I feel particularly for those who have lost their loved ones but were unable to be with them at the time. That’s, to me, the most ghastly thing,” he went on to say.

He also talked about how to help prevent future pandemics, including taking care of the planet.

“This is why I’m so determined to find a way out of this…it’s one of the reasons I’ve been trying to get the point across that we should have been treating the planet as if it was a patient long ago. No self-respecting doctor would have ever let the situation, if the planet is a patient, reach this stage before making an intervention,” he explained.

He also recently revealed why he’s been watching funny videos in quarantine…
