The Duchess of Cornwall reveals her favourite book to read to her Grandchildren

The Duchess of Cornwall has become a patron of an incredible charity that encourages young people to read to the elderly, it has been announced.

Silver Stories was created in 2016 by retired headteacher Elisabeth Carney-Haworth OBE and her husband, retired police sergeant David Carney-Haworth OBE, in response to concerns about the loneliness felt by older people, an understanding of the magic of intergenerational relationships and a desire to develop the love of reading in children.

To mark the occasion, Camilla, 74, listened to two Silver Readers, brother and sister Ollie, 11, and Tegen, ten, from Cornwall, who each read part of a story over the telephone to the Duchess.

Ollie read The Ice Monster by David Walliams, which the Duchess revealed she had "read quite a lot of times" with her grandchildren.
