Oscar’s Book Prize is thrilled to announce that Princess Beatrice has become our patron.
Beatrice, 28, who helped to judge the prize in 2016, said on World Book Day: “I am delighted to become the patron of Oscar’s Book Prize.”
She said of her own childhood: “Taking the time to read together as a family became a ritual for us and I treasure the memories created whilst poring over the pages of the books my mother would collect for us, many of which I treasure to this day.”
