Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, has revealed the activity that she enjoys doing with her grandchildren. In a new video shared on her Reading Channel on Friday, Camilla spoke about starting her own children young on books.
“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!”
The Duchess looked elegant as she wore a blue jumper, with a white shirt underneath.
Camilla is a proud grandmother of nine wonderful grandchildren. From Prince Charles’ side, she has Prince William and Kate’s three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s one-year-old son, Archie, making four.
Her other five grandchildren are from her former marriage to Andrew Parker Bowles, with whom she has two children, Tom and Laura. Her daughter Laura has three children, Eliza, 12, and twins Gus and Louis, 10, while Tom has two children, Lola, 12, and Freddy, 10.
The Reading Room Instagram account added: “The Easter holidays are a perfect time to enjoy reading with the children in your life. Look out for The Duchess’s favorite children’s books and recommendations for young readers which we’ll be sharing over the next few weeks.”
Back in September, during a visit to a school in Slough, Duchess Camilla met with the pupils from there and revealed to them a sweet detail about her and her grandchildren. Apparently, they have picked up a very healthy eating habit from grandma Camilla.
“I tell you what I really like – eating peas straight from the garden”, the royal revealed her guilty snack pleasure. “If you take them straight from the pod they are delicious and really sweet.”
The Duchess added, “I take all my grandchildren down to the garden and they spend hours and hours eating peas.”
