Duchess Camilla ''puts her heart on the line'' for her charity work.
The royal - who is married to Prince Charles, the heir to the British throne - has a number of charities which are close to her heart and former Children's Laureate Michael Murpurgo, says attending many events with her over the past few years where Camilla has read to young children, has shown him how much she cares.
He told Britain's HELLO! magazine: ''She goes to schools and puts her heart on the line. She reads like a granny and that's lovely. She doesn't try too hard to make it work. She's not an actor, pretending to be a pirate or the Elephant's Child but she reads as if she means it.''
Camilla has also received widespread praise for her consideration to the members of the public.
Photographer Ian Jones said: ''One important factor is how considerate she is to people. She knows everyone likes to have a photograph as a personal record but also to promote their good cause so she is happy to pose with them for the camera.''
