Charles & Camilla: Portrait of a Love Affair
This is the definitive account of one of the most extraordinary stories of our time. Gyles Brandreth, acclaimed biographer of the "Queen and Prince Philip", presents a unique portrait of their son, Charles, Prince of Wales, and of the one 'non-negotiable' love of his life, Camilla Shand, now Duchess of Cornwall. What are Charles and Camilla really like? What is their heritage? What has made them the way they are? This is both a revealing portrait of two unusual individuals and a family saga like no other, told with unrivalled authority and insight - and humour - by a best-selling writer who has met all the key characters in the drama: Charles, Camilla, Diana, their children, their families and their friends.
My book of the year... A riveting, gossipy and touching account of the heir to the throne, his unhappy childhood, his unfortunate first marriage and his attachment to Camilla Parker Bowles
Highly accomplished... there is much here to entertain and inform
