Google celebrates Dickens’ 200th b’day with doodle
London: Charles Dickens’s 200th birthday, which falls on February 7, has been commemorated with a Google doodle.
The Dickens Google doodle went up first in New Zealand and features characters from his novels including Scrooge, Bob Cratchit and Pip.
The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall will be leading celebrations in the United Kingdom and Prince Charles will lay a wreath on Dickens’ grave at Westminster Abbey, where he was buried in 1870, the Telegraph reported.
Ralph Fiennes, who will next be seen as Magwitch in a new film adaptation of ‘Great Expectations’, will read an extract from ‘Bleak House’ with readings also being given by Mark Dickens, great great grandson of the legendary author.
Other recent Google doodles have been in tribute to Charles Addams, Mark Twain and Louis Daguerre.
