London , Fri, 27 Jan 2012 ANI

London, Jan 27 (ANI): The Duchess of Cornwall and Arsenal striker Theo Walcott joined hands in a campaign aimed to develop the reading habit in kids and adults.


The England and Gunners star, 22, said he was "honoured" that Duchess Camilla, 64, sat on his seat in the dressing room at North London's Emirates Stadium.


He was explaining how 100 Premiership idols are joining the drive to inspire parents and children to pick up books.


Walcott was asked to choose his favourite kids' tale, and picked one he wrote himself called TJ And The Hat-Trick, the Sun reported.


The Duchess asked him about the concussion he suffered during Sunday's clash with Manchester United and the pair met 80 local schoolkids who are in the scheme.


Camilla also toured the stadium and saw the players' communal tub.


"I am rather tempted by the bath," she said. (ANI)
