Your acting skills are fabulous, Camilla!

The Duchess of Cornwall has surprisingly lent her reading skills to Kiwi director Taika Waititi as part of a very special fundraiser.

Taika, Camilla and a vast range of other well known faces have joined together to read snippets of Roald Dahl's 'James & The Giant Peach' to raise money for Partners In Health.

The Duchess took part in the sixth episode of the project, reading over Zoom alongside the talented Lupita Nyong’o and Josh Gad. In the video (above), the Duchess jokes with Waititi that she's "not much of an actor" before starting in on her part.

The Duchess, who is royal patron of Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity, said in a statement, "I hope this campaign will raise vital funds to support those most in need at this very challenging time—as well as helping families and children currently in lockdown to find a moment of comfort through the joy of reading."
