A charity leader supporting the Coronation Champion Awards opened up on some of the work Queen Camilla carries out behind the scenes and far from the camera flashes.
Queen Camilla is the patron of the National Literacy Trust
“It was a meeting with no cameras or press, just Her Majesty seated and chatting to the foster parents about the challenges they face, the joy of books and how reading together can promote bonding and communication.”
The charity leader called Her Majesty’s work with his trust “invaluable support”, saying it “helps us to ensure children and adults across the UK have the literacy skills they need for a happier, healthier and more prosperous life”.
The royal has been the patron of the Trust since November 2010 and has worked with it to make sure adults and children have the literacy skills needed for a happier and healthier life.
Camilla is well known for her passion for books and reading, and has made her life mission to improve literacy across the country and all ages.

Alongside the National Literacy Trust, she is also the patron of First Story, Beanstalk, and BookTrust among others.
On Tuesday, King Charles’s wife marked World Poetry Day by releasing a video featuring a conversation with Children’s Laureate Joseph Coelho.
The pair discussed their love for poetry and how important and formative it is for children to learn to recite and write it.
The National Literacy Trust is one of the charities supporting the Coronation Champion Awards.
Another supporter of the ongoing project is Love Island 2022 star Tasha Ghouri, one of the many celebrity ambassadors of the initiative.

She told the magazine: “The best part of working with Her Majesty is that her taking her time with people who organise events underlines the value of the work they do.
“Her Majesty’s generous spirit makes those she meets feel appreciated. Whether sharing a cup of tea and conversation with older people, meeting someone who has been homeless or has joined a communicates as a refugee, or popping on a penny to join children making bread for a Big Lunch to share with their neighbours, Her Majesty shows a keen interest in the communities she visits and in people’s lives.”
The Coronation Champions Awards were launched in February and give the chance to people to share their stories about outstanding volunteers and personalities in their communities.
Camilla launched the Coronation Champion Awards in February
“Up and down the country, millions of unsung heroes are contributing to their local communities, giving generously of their time and their talents to enhance the lives of others. If you know a volunteer who is making a difference, please be sure to share their story. We would love to hear about them!”
These awards are just one of the initiatives created in the run-up to the volunteers to bring people together in celebrating the Coronation of King Charles and Queen Camilla.
The day after the service is held at Westminster Abbey, people will be invited to throw street parties overseen by the Coronation Big Lunch – an idea stemmed from the yearly Big Lunch created by the Eden Project to boost community spirit, reduce loneliness and support charities and good causes.
On May 8, on the other hand, will be held the Big Help Out, an initiative encouraging people to try volunteering for themselves and join the work being carried out in their area.
