Regex pattern to match a word, or group of words surrounded by double quotes in C#

So, I have this string:

string str = "asdf \"xxxx\" 'asdf' \"yyyy uuuu\" ";

And I have this pattern:
string regPattern = @"(\x22(?<word>\w+)\x22)"

This correctly matches "xxxx", but it does not match "yyyy uuuu"
So, I changed it for:
string regPattern = @"(\x22(?<word>\w+|\s+)\x22)"

And still it does not match!

Try :
string regPattern = @"(\x22(?<word>[\w|\s]+)\x22)"

Your "string regPattern = @"(\x22(?<word>\w+|\s+)\x22)"" will try to match "aaaaaaaaaaaa" or "           " and not "aaaaaa        " or "          aaaaaaaaa" or "aaaaa      aaaaa" or "     aaaaa     "
