Prince Charles’ Wife Camilla Asks For Book Recommendations At NLT Anniversary

Camilla Parker-Bowles wants to expand her book collection.

On Wednesday, the Duchess of Cornwall made an appearance at the National Literacy Trust’s (NLT) 25th anniversary. At one point, Camilla was speaking and was surrounded by authors at a special reception, so she took it as an opportunity to ask the writers for some great books that she could read during her trip with Prince Charles next month.

“I am just about to embark on an aeroplane journey to Australia which is a few hours – if anybody has got any really good recommendations, I am sure I will be thrilled to hear them,” Camilla said (via Daily Mail).

Jilly Cooper, Prue Leith, Victoria Hislop, Joanna Trollope and Joanne Harris were among the authors who were invited to the event. On the same night, Prince Charles’ wife was presented with 25 children’s books that were selected by the kids across the country. Camilla can read those publications to her grandchildren.
