The Duchess of Cornwall has placed copies of some of her favorite books in a red phone booth library for people to find.

Camilla’s popular online book club, the Reading Room, has placed publications by featured authors on phone booths across the country to encourage people to read, and she has lent a hand in Scotland.

Photos shared on Instagram showed the Duchess wrapped in a scarf and gloves as she carried her contributions into the converted phone booth, which was packed with books.

Charlie Mackesy’s The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse and Victoria Hislop’s Island, signed by the authors, were left by the Duchess in the small library purse at Abergeldie.

It comes after an exciting period for the Duchess, as it was announced that the Queen will personally award her the highest possible honors thanks to her 'service to the Sovereign'

The images were shared online with the caption: ‘When The Reading Room has been planting autographed copies of our authors’ books in payphone libraries across the UK in recent weeks, the Duchess of Cornwall decided to stop by this fantastic library near Birkhall , the Scottish home of Their Royal Highnesses, and to add to the collection.

‘What a great location for a book exchange!’

Among those who liked the photo was author Charlie Mackesy, who shared a series of red emojis in thanks to the Duchess.

In 2018, the Prince of Wales opened the converted telephone box on the B976 in rural Aberdeenshire, between the private royal residences of Birkhall and Balmoral, and Charles and Camilla have deposited books there in the past.

Launched on Instagram in January 2021, Camilla’s Reading Room is a hub for literary communities around the world, celebrating literature in all its forms.

Inspired by the popular reading lists she shared during the 2020 pandemic, it offers book recommendations and exclusive insights from the authors, in a community space for book lovers of all ages and backgrounds.

It comes after an exciting period for the Duchess as it was announced that the Queen will personally bestow her with the highest possible honors thanks to her “service to the Sovereign.”

Camilla will be named a Royal Lady of the Most Noble Order of the Garter, the oldest and oldest of Britain’s Orders of Chivalry, Buckingham Palace said.

The appointment will be seen as a royal seal of approval for the loyalty and discretion Camilla has shown since her marriage to the Prince of Wales in 2005.

It will lead to renewed speculation that the 95-year-old monarch will still approve Camilla as queen when she dies and Prince Charles takes the throne.

Clarence House says the Duchess is ‘intended’ to become princess consort, showing sensitivity to previously negative public opinion about Camilla’s role in the breakdown of Charles and Diana’s marriage.

But Charles never made a secret of the fact that Camilla would become queen by his side.

And the Queen is known to have been impressed with the way her daughter-in-law has embraced her public role, showing quiet and respectful devotion to both her husband and the institution of the monarchy.
