“The channel will offer new seasons of book recommendations, as well as providing exclusive insight from the authors themselves, in a community space for book lovers of all ages, abilities and backgrounds,” Clarence House explained.

The Winter Season titles will be revealed on January 15, 2021, and new books will be added each season.

Camilla, reports Daily Mail, was inspired to start the initiative as a result of the response to two suggested reading lists she published during the lockdown. The royal, who is also known to be an avid reader, decided to launch a more permanent platform.

Each of the recommended books will be accompanied by exclusive content from the respective authors.
