Duchess Camilla has shared some intimate photos of her family in a new video.

The Duchess of Cornwall has revealed lovely photos of her grandchildren in a new video that she has appeared in.

Duchess Camilla joined a new initiative to keep children entertained during lockdown as she teamed up with a group of Hollywood stars to record a reading of Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach for children.

Joining Avengers: Endgame’s Taika Waititi, Black Panther’s Lupita Nyong’o and Frozen 2’s Josh Gad, the Duchess appeared in the video to read the part of the Captain in the classic children’s story.


Contributing virtually to the story reading, Duchess Camilla joined the video from her home office, giving fans a glimpse into how she decorates her muted room.

And the Duchess even gave fans a glimpse of her young grandchildren in never-before-seen pictures that she keeps alongside her desk.

Just behind her mint and cream table lamp, viewers can see two photo frames containing black and white photos of young children, who are presumably the Duchess’s grandchildren.

The royal has five biological grandchildren from her first marriage to Andrew Parker Bowles, through the pair’s two children Laura Lopes and Tom Parker Bowles.

Camilla’s daughter Laura Lopes shares children Gus, Louis and Eliza Lopes with her husband Harry Lopes. And the royal’s son Tom Parker Bowles shares children Lola and Freddy with his wife Sara.

We’re sure all of the Duchess’s grandchildren will enjoy listening to the special story reading!

Aleesha is digital shopping writer at woman&home - so whether you're looking for beauty, fashion, health or home buys, she knows all the best places to splash your cash. She earned an MA in Magazine Journalism from City, University of London in 2017 after graduating from University of Leeds in 2014 with a BA in English and Spanish (which took her to Madrid for a fun Rioja and tapas-packed year). Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she became so obsessed with the royals that she followed breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.

Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a slick of lip balm and a good slathering of SPF, cannot live without an eyelash curler by her side and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).

But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines.

When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group. Oh and she makes the most of her Disney+ subscription by watching the Marvel films on repeat (definitely not just for Chris Evans...).
