King Charles is the subject of a new Little People, Big Dreams book

The Little People, Big Dreams series introduces young readers to inspiring people in history, politics, music, arts, design, science, and sports.

The brilliantly-illustrated mini biographies have already covered a wide range of people; from David Attenborough to Muhammed Ali, Agatha Christie and David Bowie.

His mother the Queen has also been included in the series

King Charles' late mother, the Queen, is also the subject of one of the books, which charts her incredible life from a young princess to the world’s longest-reigning monarch.

The Little People, Big Dreams books are aimed at children from the age of four – perfect for King Charles' eldest grandchildren.

No doubt Prince William and Princess Kate's children - Prince George, nine, Princess Charlotte, seven, and Prince Louis, four - are fans of the series and will be very excited to see their grandfather on the cover!

George, Louis and Charlotte will be excited by the news

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's children are still a little young for the books; Archie Harrison is set to celebrate his fourth birthday on 6 May – the same day as the coronation – while Lilibet Diana will be two in June.

It's not yet known whether Harry and Meghan will make an appearance at the coronation, with the Prince previously admitting their attendance was still up in the air.
