Tom Parker Bowles joins GQ as contributing editor

GQ magazine has signed Tom Parker Bowles, the food writer and stepson of Prince Charles, as a contributing editor.

The Conde Nast men’s monthly said Parker Bowles would write regular features on food, drink, eating out and travel, starting in the September issue.

The son of Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, currently writes a weekly food column for the Mail on Sunday and was until recently a regular contributor to Tatler magazine.

He also co-presents a programme on UKTV Food, the digital channel that this week announced it was changing its named to Good Food under licence from the BBC.

GQ editor Dylan Jones said: “Food plays a significant part in the GQ man’s life, and Tom’s expertise and insight into the culinary world near and far will be invaluable and entertaining.”

The magazine’s average monthly circulation was up 0.4 per cent year on year to 130,084 in the second half of 2008 – the most recent audited figures available from ABC.
