Duchess Camilla praised
Duchess Camilla has been praised for her work with children.
The royal – who has a number of grandchildren – took part in a workshop based on Roald Dahl’s ‘The B.F.G.’ earlier this week, where she delighted the youngsters in attendance by reading to them and taking part in some activities.
Jude Kelly, artistic director of Southbank Centre, told PEOPLE: “She’s always amusing, curious, always engaged with kids.
“She never ticks the boxes and always does something very personal. She loves children and they love her. I notice she creates private time with them on occasions like this, she’s not using them for a photo opportunity.”
Camilla is the patron of the Roald Dahl 100, which celebrates the author in the year he would have been 100.
She was recently named as a judge for 500 WORDS, the writing competition for children between the ages of five and 13.
Camilla joined Malorie Blackman, Charlie Higson, Frank Cottrell Boyce and Francesca Simon on the judging panel.
