A fundamental tradition! Duchess Camilla revealed that her favorite activity to do with her children — and now her grandchildren — is reading.
The Duchess of Cornwall, 73, mentioned how this bonding experience started in a video post on her Reading Room Instagram on Friday, March 26.
“I read to my children and now I read to my grandchildren,” she said. “I love it. I read to them when they were absolutely tiny. And they’ve got older and older and older, and now they actually read to me!”
Duchess Camilla has two children with her previous husband, Andrew Parker Bowles, who she was married to from 1973 to 1995. From her children, Tom and Laura, she has five grandchildren. Camilla also has grandchildren Prince George, 7, Princess Charlotte, 5, Prince Louis, 2, and Archie, 22 months, from her marriage to Prince Charles. Prince William and Duchess Kate are the parents of George, Charlotte and Louis, while Meghan Markle and Prince Harry share Archie and are currently expecting baby No. 2.
In the Easter‐focused post promoting Camilla’s children’s book recommendations, the duchess also spoke about the volunteering organization, Beanstalk. “The difference it made to their lives — I mean, it’s so important, I think, to just read from an early age,” Camilla shared about the organization’s mission to have people read to children one-on-one.
