The Duchess of Cornwall has shared a reading list for those isolating at home over the Easter weekend.

“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

Her Royal Highness is passionate about reading for all ages and promotes its importance through some of her patronages, including National Literacy Trust, BookTrust, Coram Beanstalk and the Royal Society of Literature.
