With people reading more and more during the quarantine. We bring to you books that the Royal family can’t get enough of. Here is something for everyone. Check out the list here:
Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children From Nature-Deficit Disorder
In 2019, Kate partnered with a pair of landscape architects to design a garden for the Chelsea Flower Show. The outdoor space, which followed a “Back to Nature” theme, was created with children in mind. It was partly inspired by Last Child in the Woods, which Kate and the architects had all read.
The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom
In her pre-royal days, Meghan ran a blog called “The Tig.” In one post, the now-Duchess highlights a few must-reads, including The Four Agreements. “My mom gave me a copy of this book when I was 13 years old,” she wrote, “and to this day, I constantly circle back to the Don Miguel Ruiz classic for the simplest ways to simplify your life.”
The Little Prince
Another book Meghan recommended on her blog is The Little Prince. “I have long been obsessed with this book, and specifically with The Little Fox,” she wrote. “Even if I don’t revisit the entire existential text, the chapter of The Little Fox unearths a truth in me that is always worth the check-in.”
A Tale of Two Cities
During the early days of the coronavirus lockdown, the Duchess of Cornwall released a list of books she’s enjoyed. Among them was a certified classic: Dickens’s A Tale of Two Cities. “This is a wonderful story of romantic and familial love set against the violence of the French Revolution,” Camilla said of the novel. “It is one of my favorite books by Charles Dickens and, in my humble opinion, one of his best!”
The Architect’s Apprentice
Also among Camilla’s pandemic recommendations was The Architect’s Apprentice. The Duchess declared it to be “a magical, colorful tale set during the height of the Ottoman Empire.”
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
Camilla has previously revealed that Prince Charles enjoys reading the Harry Potter series to his grandchildren. “He does all the voices, because he is a brilliant mimic… But he sits down and they all sit with him,” she said.”I always think they are going to be wriggling around in the bed, but they sit spellbound.”
The Girl on the Train
During a 2o16 engagement, Kate revealed that she’d recently finished The Girl on the Train.
Early on in the pandemic, Kensington Palace also released a peek inside Kate’s office, which revealed that she keeps a collection of Penguin clothbound classics designed by Coralie Bickford-Smith (including titles like Emma, Sense and Sensibility, The Hound of Baskervilles, and Middlemarch) on her desk.
At just over one-year-old, Prince Harry and Meghan’s son Archie hasn’t had much time to develop his literary tastes, but he’s already a few favorites. Among them is Duck! Rabbit!, which the Duchess of Sussex read to him in a sweet video released to celebrate the young royal’s birthday.
