Camilla Parker Bowles Announces New Title on IG
Camilla Parker Bowles’s resume just got a little bit longer.
Over the weekend, Clarence House announced that the Duchess of Cornwall is now an officially Patron of Silver Stories, a new program that pairs young students with elderly individuals in isolation to speak on the telephone and read them stories.
According to a post shared on the official CH Instagram account, the schoolchildren, called Silver Readers, read to the Silver Listeners weekly to help “boost their reading confidence, fluency and expression.” In the snap, we see the 74-year-old royal talking on the phone in what appears to be her home office.
“The duchess enjoyed a call with some young readers earlier this week, who told HRH how much they enjoy spending time reciting stories to the older generation,” the post’s caption read. “The Duchess told Ollie and Teagan, who read to older people over the phone: ‘I am sure you help the older generation so much by reading to them. It must cheer up their days.’”
This is the second new title Bowles has received in the last 30 days. Last month, she became Patron of The Mirabel Centre, Nigeria’s first-ever sexual assault referral center which is located in Lagos. Prince Charles’s wife announced the news on social media, where she shared a slideshow of never-before-seen photos that were taken during a recent visit to The Mirabel Centre.
Congrats on the new roles, Camilla!
