Kate Middleton’s 5 Favorite Children’s Books

In January 2021, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, launched the Reading Room — a space for readers and non-readers to find books they will love. In honor of World Book Day 2022, she’s focusing on the magic of reading with children.

“Through the increasingly diverse selection of literature on offer, children armed with their magical book tokens will be able to find a book that both reflects their own experiences and gives them perspective on other people’s. After all, when we read, we understand ourselves better , we understand others better and we make lifelong friends, “Camilla wrote.

Camilla loves reading Gangsta Granny by David Walliams to her grandchildren, saying, “This is a really wonderful book to share with your grandchildren – you can see their eyes widen as they begin to wonder if their own grandparents might have some interesting tales to tell…” Her other favorite books to share with her grandchildren include Black Beauty by Anna Sewell, The Explorer by Katherine Rundell, and When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit by Judith Kerr.

In celebration of World Book Day, Camilla asked her step-daughter-in-law Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, to share her favorite children’s books. Kate Middleton is a passionate advocate of early childhood development, so turning to her for children’s book recommendations makes perfect sense.

Here are Kate’s favorite children’s books:

Kate Middleton’s dad, Michael Middleton, recommended Stig of the Dump to her when she was a young.

“As a child I loved spending time outdoors, making dens, digging, discovering and making things out of odds and ends,” Kate recalls. “Whether this was why my father recommended this book to me or whether this book inspired my imagination, I can not remember, but I have never forgotten this brilliant book and the values ​​it teaches.”

“An all-time classic and loved in our house for obvious reasons,” Kate said, hinting at her daughter, Princess Charlotte, who shares a name with the protagonist. “This is a charming story about friendship, loyalty and love.”


The Big Katie Morag Storybook

Kate recommended all books in the Katie Morag series, calling them “fun stories for children of all ages and a great book for older children to read to younger siblings. These books are filled with captivating and beautiful illustrations to accompany the text so there’s lots to talk about!”

Now we’re picturing Prince George reading Katie Morag books to Charlotte and Louis!

“This little book is a wonderful way to help children understand and recognize their feelings and emotions, and brings to life the importance of empathy,” Kate wrote.
