On Monday, the Reading Room Instagram account announced that season eight of the book club would begin on October 14. It was unclear if the royal reading group would continue after Camilla became Queen Consort following the death of Queen Elizabeth.
The Reading Room has selected four books for royal bookworms to read this autumn, and the choices are designed to “warm your hearts and chill your bones”, according to their Instagram post.
The social media page offers book recommendations and a community for bookworms, as well as showcases exclusive interviews with the authors who are picked.
The royal website for the book club describes the community as a “space for book lovers of all ages, abilities and backgrounds.”
The book club first began in January 2021 and was inspired by the Queen Consort’s reading lists that she revealed during the Covid pandemic in 2020.
The Queen Consort has said in the past: “Whatever other awful things came out of lockdown, I think reading has come out extremely well,” and added that reading was “a lovely way of corresponding and getting to know people. It’s a lovely way of communicating.”

The variety of novels the Queen Consort will be reading this October includes Dracula by Bram Stoker, a classic published in 1897 and one of the most famous vampire books to get readers ready for Halloween.
The book is told in a series of letters and diary entries about the vampire moving from Transylvania to England and a group led by Professor Van Helsing trying to stop the monster from feeding on more victims.
Death watches the life of a little girl living with foster parents who steals a variety of books throughout the war due to her fascination with the power of words.

The story is told from the narrative of an older woman who reminisces about her youth. It follows 19-year-old Vivian Morris who has been thrown out of college and sent to live with her Aunt who owns an eccentric theatre called the Lily Playhouse.
The last book on the list is The Whalebone Theatre by Joanna Quinn, published this year, and is a historical novel set in 1928.
The book is about Cristabel Seagrave, an orphan and follows her life from when she is 12 years old and whale washes up near her home, to when she is an adult working as a British secret agent in World War Two.

When describing her inspiration for starting the royal book club, Queen Consort Camilla said: “To me reading is a great adventure, I have loved it since I was very small and I would love everybody else to enjoy it as much as I do.”.
“You can escape, and you can travel, and you can laugh and you can cry. Every type of emotion which humans experience is in a book.”
Queen Consort Camilla has said she enjoys reading “all sorts” of books and that she owns many cookery books, but most of them get stolen by her son, who is a cookery writer.
She said she reads “a lot of fiction” as well as non-fiction books, as “a really great biography is a lovely thing to get stuck into.”
