Over the past week, Taika Waititi has been gathering celebrities to read Roald Dahl's 'James and the Giant Peach' for charity. Now, a Royal has jumped of the bandwagon! 

Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall joined in on the fun alongside Frozen's Josh Gad, and Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong'o in the sixth episode of the series. She says she was "thrilled" to be a part of the episode.

The royal admitted she wasn't "much of an actor", but still gave her all in her performance over Zoom. She voiced The Ship's Captain and even had a line that referenced the Queen.

Camilla adds to an A-list lineup of stars reading the Roald Dahl novel to raise money for charity Partners In Health. The initiative is to help raise funds for those working on the front line in the fight against Covid-19.

The guest stars from previous episodes have included Meryl Streep, Chris and Liam Hemsworth, Cara Delevingne and Benedict Cumberbatch.

And of course, each video is hosted by our beloved Taika, what could be better?
