The Queen’s Reading Room Podcast is available on Spotify, as well as all other platforms including Apple Podcasts.
In each episode, Camilla will be asked about her own reading and was questioned this time on which books she enjoyed reading to her grandchildren and whether she did different voices for different characters.
Sir Ian Rankin, known across the world for his Inspector Rebus novels, was the main focus of the first episode, while the next one will feature Dame Joanna Lumley.
The Queen’s Reading Room charity was formed from an Instagram book club set up by Camilla for literature lovers in 2021 during the pandemic.
