Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, got candid about her grandchildren's use of mobile phones and social media.
During her conversation with Daily Mail, the future Queen Consort said, “Families don’t sit down any longer, do they, and have dinner."
“Because I am ancient, in the old days we all sat down [to eat]. Now everyone is on their devices. People take those flipping phones [with them to the table]! You have to take them away from them," she told the publication.
“Social media can achieve a lot of good, but then you have the nightmare of children going on and seeing things they don’t understand,” she continued.
“And then they can’t have a conversation or look you in the face. I am always saying: ‘Stop it and look up at me [to her grandchildren]!’,” Camilla added. “It’s a nightmare. It makes me quite cross!”
