Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cornwall has launched a new initiative dedicated to the celebration of literature in all its forms.

The initiative, entitled The Duchess of Cornwall’s Reading Room, is intended to be a hub for literary communities around the world.

Inspired by the success of the reading lists published by Her Royal Highness last year, the channel will offer new seasons of book recommendations, as well as providing exclusive insight from the authors themselves, in a community space for book lovers of all ages, abilities and backgrounds.

Today Season One of The Reading Room was announced, with the first four book titles revealed. 

The Duchess chose:

The Mirror & The Light – Hilary Mantel

Where the Crawdads Sing – Delia Owens

Restless – William Boyd

The Architect’s Apprentice – Elif Shafak

Over the next eight weeks, The Reading Room will explore more of The Duchess of Cornwall’s favourite books, in conversation with the authors.
