The Duchess of Cornwall Shares Heartfelt Message On World Book Day

Camilla who is a patron of a number of literacy charities, penned an article for The Mirror this
week in support of the annual event.

She wrote: “This World Book Day, please take your children and your
grandchildren to your nearest book shop to let the explorations begin. As Willy
Wonka writes on his golden tickets, ‘I shake you warmly by the hand! Tremendous
things are in store for you!  Many wonderful surprises await you!’ –
surprises, he might have added, that is only possible between the covers of a
book…”

Camilla, who has five grandchildren and five step-grandchildren of her
own, praised World Book Day for bringing the joy of reading to children for 25
years.

Recalling her own childhood memories, she said: “I still
remember the intense excitement I felt as a child when choosing books to buy
with my pocket money…and the joy of knowing that these precious books, clutched
tightly in my hands, was my very own.”

She added: “When we read, we understand ourselves better, we
understand others better and we make lifelong friends.”

Camilla’s message comes the day after she and the Prince of Wales expressed their solidarity for Ukraine
during a visit to the Ukrainian Catholic Cathedral on Wednesday.

Charles and Camilla lit a candle and left floral tributes at the
Ukrainian Catholic Cathedral in London as they acknowledged the plight of the
eastern European nation as fears grow Russia is planning a greater onslaught in
the coming days.

The Duchess was also left close to tears when the leading members of the
UK’s Ukrainian community sang a mournful version of the song Chervona Kalyna,
Red Guelder Rose, to welcome the couple when they walked into a cathedral hall.
