"I read to my children and now I read to my grandchildren," she said in a video clip, which was posted on Duchess of Cornwall's Reading Room Instagram page. "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!"

Camilla also touched upon a charity called Beanstalk, which is very near and dear to her heart. "The Evening Standard put out an appeal for volunteers and they wanted volunteers to come and give one to one reading with children and they went to all these schools and sat one to one with these people and they read to them. The difference it made to their lives," the 73-year-old explained. "I mean, it's so important, I think, to just read from an early age."

In December 2020, Camilla created The Reading Room, and their mission is to "discover new books each season & meet the extraordinary people who create them," per their Instagram bio.

"Ernest Hemingway, famously, once said, 'There is no friend as loyal as a book.' In these challenging times when we are isolated from the ones we love, many of us are finding comfort in reading, to fire up our imaginations, to take us on journeys and to make us laugh," she said about her new venture. "With that in mind here is a list of my dearest 'friends.'"
