Queen Consort Camilla and Dua Lipa were spotted sharing an animated conversation at the Booker Prize Ceremony in London's Roundhouse on Monday night.

The senior royal attended the event as a presenter for the 2022 Booker Prize for Fiction, while the singer was there as a keynote speaker.

The queen consort arrived at the arts venue, greeting the organizers of the event with a smile. She was welcomed by authors, contest judges and celebrities, who attended the ceremony, including Lipa.

Photos and clips of queen consort and Lipa made the rounds online Monday night, showing the "Hot Like Hell" singer telling the royal she sadly would not be able to perform at the event.

Lipa also told the queen consort she was honored to have been chosen to give the keynote speech that night. The pair reportedly talked about their shared love of literacy — something that has been a key priority of Camilla's public work as a senior royal. Meanwhile, the music royalty, who also values literacy, was invited to the event to deliver a speech about how her love of literature has made her a successful musician.

During the event, Queen Consort Camilla was also spotted chatting with "The Trees" author Percival Everett and "The Seven Moons of Maali Almeida" author Shehan Karunatilaka, who both competed for this year's Booker Prize.

They were joined by other authors in the running, including, NoViolet Bulawayo of "Glory," Alan Garner of "Teracle Walker," Claire Keegan of "Small Things," and Elizabeth Strout of "Oh William!"

Karunatilaka was later named the winner of the prestigious Booker Prize for Fiction.

Queen Consort Camilla, who graced the event with her sister, Annabel Elliot, was one of the highlights of the ceremony. In her welcome speech, Eve Smith, secretary of the Booker Prize Foundation, said, "It's great to have Her Majesty here because she does really take an interest in the authors, and even if she can't come in previous years she's always made sure that she sees them."

Before she became the queen consort, Camilla visited schools, prisons and workplaces to promote the power of literacy. In January 2021, she launched a literacy initiative called the "Reading Room," where she shares some of her favorite books and authors to literary lovers.
