THE QUEEN WILL HOST A RECEPTION TO MARK THE RESULTS OF THE QUEEN’S READING ROOM STUDY INTO THE EFFECTS OF READING ON WELLBEING

Tuesday 26th March 2024

The Queen will host a reception at Clarence House with authors, neuroscientists, members of the literary community and representatives from The Queen’s Reading Room to mark the findings of a pioneering new research study commissioned by The Queen’s Reading Room.

Her Majesty will join guests at Clarence House to celebrate the results of The Queen’s Reading Room study into the link between reading fiction and wellbeing, which has proven a clear link between reading fiction and increased mental health, brain health and social connectedness.

The Queen’s Reading Room commissioned their first qualitative and quantitative research, as well as neuroscientific research to determine whether there is a link between reading fiction and wellbeing. The neuroscientific study, which will be released on 27th March 2024, suggests that reading for just five minutes can reduce stress, improve concentration and help people to feel more connected.

During the reception, Her Majesty will meet guests involved in the charity’s research project, including academics and independent neuroscientists who have led the study, as well as authors, actors and literary advocates who have contributed to The Queen’s Reading Room Podcast and Festival.

The Queen has long championed a love of reading across generations and is passionate about shining a light on the importance of literature.
