Camilla Bowles & Prince Charles Ask People to Remember The Elderly This Holiday Season

Every year as the holiday season begins, we rush to the shopping centers and wait in long queues just to grab the best deals on our favorite items. But how many times do we check up on our friends and relatives during these happy times? 

Ever since the pandemic set foot on Earth, we’ve been separated from our loved ones. Now, as things slowly return to normal, we’ve grown so habitual of not catching up with them that we still rarely try to find chances to meet friends and family. Everyone has become used to staying inside a cocoon.

But it’s high time we change that and get back to the old normal, where our families and friends were our first priority. A time when even time and distance couldn’t part us. And that’s something, not just us, even the British Royal family wants you to do!

A vital reminder
