Really looking forward to this. I love that Her Highness is so passionate about literacy, and love of reading.

This appeared on the PoW website (referring to 11 October entry):

Diary
When I searched online, there was nothing. Still no joint events for C&C scheduled in the diary.

Duchess of Cornwall Seeks 'Discreet’ Secretary

The Duchess of Cornwall has placed an advertisement for someone to support her “small and busy office”.

It warns: “Exercising tact and discretion at all times is vital.”

Your link worked! Thank you. But I got home late and missed Camilla's speech, so I wrote CH an email and asked them to upload a video (they released the printed version). I'm sure they'll get on it right away.

I would apply for this, but I am pretty sure I would have to give up TRF.

It is disappointing that Ms. Ruth Ozeki did not win. She is a wonderful writer. Ms.Catton's masterpiece is a just heavy artificial story with cheap pretensions to look intellectual.

Interesting ! Laurentien was one of the few royal guests at the Duchess 's wedding back in 2005. They seem to really enjoy each other's company.

Interesting fact about Laurentien at Camilla's wedding that I wasn't aware of!

They both have a passion for books, reading and literacy, so I'm sure it's easy for them to have a conversation and share a bond.

Any idea of the reason for this visit to Clarence House?

May well have been a general catch-up, having met in Amsterdam in April at the inauguration of King W-A.

Just reiterates my view that the BRF are actually quite close to the various European royal families, but just keep their contact private and usually outside the purview of the press.

Camilla and Laurentien are patrons of very similar charities (books, reading). Maybe, they discuss future projects.

Rain? What rain? The Duchess of Cornwall defies the downpours in elegant royal blue as she arrives for Westminster Abbey's harvest celebrations | Mail Online

"Despite arriving home late, Camilla was up early this morning for a private meeting with Princess Laurentien of the Netherlands, during which the pair discussed the problem of falling literacy rates, according to Clarence House."
