Camilla Parker-Bowles much like the rest of the British royal family has been doing all she can to ease the panic during these stressful times while also supporting many charities that are providing coronavirus relief.
The Duchess of Cornwall joined forces with acclaimed film director Taika Waititi for his reading of Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach on Wednesday.
The duchess, 72, was also joined by Lupita Nyong’o as well as Josh Gad for the reading in which she played The Ship’s Captain.
“Holy cats! Send a message to the Queen at once! The country must be warned!” Camilla read from the children's classic fiction.
In a statement released by her, the duchess said: “I hope this campaign will raise vital funds to support those most in need at this very challenging time – as well as helping families and children currently in lockdown to find a moment of comfort through the joy of reading.”
The star-studded readings have been coming through the Roald Dahl Company’s initiative of supporting charities that have been affected by the coronavirus pandemic. The celebrities who have taken part in the project include Meryl Streep, Liam and Chris Hemsworth and Eddie Redmayne.
