Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, has explained how her father, Major Bruce Shand, inspired her love of reading, describing him as the "best read man". She said he "devoured books" and read to her and her brother when they were children. Major Shand was a lieutenant in the Second World War and was taken as a Prisoner of War by Germany for several years. After his release, he married Rosalind Cubitt, and they had Camilla and her brother Mark, and he went onto be a partner in a wine firm. He died in 2006.
