He added: “It is allowing people to keep working but also to keep in touch through virtual parties, games, singing — and some of the funniest videos I have seen for a long time.”

The Prince of Wales is using video calls and technology to keep in touch with family and friends while recovering from coronavirus at his home on the Balmoral estate.

But he has revealed he enjoys "hilarious" videos and memes while resting up with Camilla.

The prince also echoed his father Prince Philip’s tribute to the key workers who are helping Britain through the crisis.

Writing for Country Life, he said: “Beyond the walls of the hospitals, care homes, doctors’ surgeries and pharmacies, we have also seen a burgeoning of remarkable kindness and concern for those in need.”

The heir to the throne added: "“Younger people shopping for older folk, some making regular telephone calls to those living alone, Church services recorded and emailed to parishioners and, of course, what this national crisis has also brought home — dare I say it — is how much we rely on our agricultural community and all those in the food supply chain, from field to fork.

“The retailers have been doing an outstanding job responding to the unprecedented pressures, and so has the entire supply chain.

“The delivery drivers, shelf-stackers and all the others serving shoppers are providing an immensely important service in this time of great need.

“Of course, it all begins with our farmers.

“When was the last time anyone gave the availability of a bottle of milk, or a loaf of bread, or fresh vegetables a second thought?

“Suddenly, these things are precious and valued.

“And this is how it always should be.

“Food does not happen by magic.

“If the past few weeks have proved anything, it is that we cannot take it for granted.

“In this country there are 80,000 farmers producing our food — from the Fells of Cumbria, to the arable and vegetable lands of East Anglia; from the Welsh Mountains to the Scottish fishing villages; from the dairy fields of Cornwall and Northern Ireland to the orchards of Kent.

“Day in and day out, they are working to produce food — for us.

“And we owe them an enormous debt of gratitude."
