The Duchess of Cornwall attends the Wells Festival of Literature
The spooky week running up to Halloween might be putting you off staying out too late - there are scary clowns around, we hear - but not so the royals who, it would seem, are ready to visit, open and dine every week.
Highlights of their week include Princess Anne who is to jet off to Malaysia on 29 October to attend the Emerging Leaders' Dialogue Asia event, and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, handing out one of the biggest literary prizes in the world, the Man Booker Prize for Fiction 2016.
