His Royal Highness, The Prince Of Wales, invites The Radio 2 Breakfast Show to his private residence near Balmoral, to read his favourite poem on the 25th annual National Poetry Day (Thurs 3rd Oct 2019). He reads Bernard Levin’s ‘Quoting Shakespeare’, saying “The great thing about it, I think, is it reminds us all just how many words and phrases we use in the English language and in general conversation which actually were originally written by Shakespeare.”
