Camilla selected four personal book picks in honor of Prince Philip's memory

Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall is paying tribute to her late grandfather-in-law Prince Philip through their shared love of reading.

For the launch of the second season of her book club, The Reading Room, which is dedicated to "discover[ing] new books and meet[ing] the extraordinary people who create them," Camilla honored the Duke of Edinburgh, who passed along his BookTrust patronage to her in 2011.

"As Patron of BookTrust, which I inherited from my late father-in-law His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh, I would like to dedicate the next series of my Reading Room to him, in memory of a great fellow reader," she shared on Instagram.

It was the royal family's heartfelt grief that most reverberated throughout the historic chapel. At one point, a visibly distraught Sophie, Countess of Wessex — who was seated alongside her husband, Prince Edward (Philip's youngest son) and their children Lady Louise and James, Viscount Severn — removed her mask to wipe her tears.
