More often than not, the royals like to keep their private lives private, but every so often a picture or conversation gives us a rare glimpse into their personal interests—like their favorite books! The other day, Kate Middleton and Prince William shared photos of themselves from inside their workspace at Kensington Palace, and royal fans noticed the stack of Penguin Classics on Kate's desk. If you're looking for book recs, add these classics plus a few more royal-approved books, below, to your reading list during quarantine.
