The Queen Consort, Camilla, has launched a book project charity to promote a love of reading among people of all ages.

Previously known as The Reading Room, the project has been renamed The Queen’s Reading Room.

Camilla's aim is to foster a lifelong love of literature and connect people with the magic of books.

Dame Judi Dench and David Olusoga will talk at the charity's first literary festival at Hampton Court Palace on June 11.

The charity will promote books by various global authors and connect readers with writers via social media.

Camilla's book club, with over 155,000 adherents worldwide, inspired the Queen's Reading Room.

The nonprofit helps people find books that enrich their lives and become lifelong readers.

Camilla contracted COVID-19 for the second time last week but has since made an excellent recovery.

The launch was attended by literary figures, authors, and representatives of literacy charities.
