HRH The Duchess of Cornwall has agreed to be a patron of BookTrust for another five years, the charity announced today (14th July).
BookTrust C.e.o Diana Gerald said: “It is a great honour for BookTrust that Her Royal Highness has chosen to continue as our patron. Her support is invaluable in our quest to inspire a love of reading in children. We know that reading as a child can transform lives and is a prime indicator of later achievement and well-being.
“We are committed to starting children on their reading journey and supporting them throughout, and it’s a huge delight to know that Her Royal Highness is helping us to do so."
The Duchess of Cornwall took over the role from HRH The Duke of Edinburgh in 2011.
