Surrounded by wooden animal sculptures that decorated the park and sporting a chic pair of tortoise glasses, the literary advocate sat down and continued to read to the students after they ventured out into the lush London park.

It's been a busy week for the feathered haired royal. This public event comes a few days after Prince Charles' wife was seen attending day one of the Royal Ascot along with her husband and many other members of the Royal Family. It was the first time since 2019 that spectators were allowed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
