The Duchess of Cornwall announced the second season of her book club, The Reading Room, today. Camilla posted a photograph on Instagram wearing a stylish monochrome outfit - and eagle-eyed fans spotted she was also wearing a pretty heart bracelet, rumored to be a gift from Prince Charles for the couple's 16th wedding anniversary. 

The Duchess wore a black and white pleated dress designed by Fiona Clare and polished hair and makeup. The royal rarely deviates from her bouffant bob hairstyle and blonde highlights. 

The photograph was posted to the @clarencehouse Instagram page, with the caption, "Season Two of The Duchess of Cornwall’s Reading Room has just started.

"The Duchess looks back at Season One in a new video released on @duchessofcornwallsreadingroom."
