The Duchess of Cornwall shares a reading list

Published 16 April 2020

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. With that in mind, here is a list of my dearest ‘friends’.” - The Duchess of Cornwall

The Duchess of Cornwall has shared a reading list to provide some inspiration to those isolating at home. The Duchess is passionate about reading for all ages and promotes its importance through some of her patronages, including The Literacy Trust, The Book Trust, Beans Talk Reads and The Royal Society of Literature.
