Publisher's Summary

This is a story of the most well documented, most commented on love affair of our times. Yet the personalities behind the facade remain elusive and the nature of their relationship is an enigma. This is the first major biography of Charles and Camilla, two people who have battled against the curious lot that fate has thrown their way.
Gyles Brandreth returns to the same ground as his last book, the bestselling Philip and Elizabeth; Portrait of a Marriage. This again will be a unique royal biography, as the author has met all the principal players, has had privileged access to the royal family. This will be a powerful and revealing portrait of a remarkable relationship, told with authority and insight and illustrated with photographs from the royal collection.

The fairy tale of Charles and Camilla.

This book has taken me behind the scenes of the events that led up to the marriage of Prince Charles and Camilla the Duchess of Cornwall. It tries tells the story of, in Diana Princess of Wales , a marriage with three people in it. An easy listening book which should appeal to most people.

Fascinating Detailed Account Of Royal Life

I loved this book. Gyles Brandreth did extensive research and interviews and he is a great biographer. (And friend of Prince Philip) The detailed history from both families was fascinating and I was completely absorbed throughout. Stephen Thorne is an excellent narrator too, which always makes a difference. I know I will return to this audiobook again and again as there is so much information and dare I say, entertainment,to be had. Gyles covers Charles and Diana’s marriage with honesty too. This is a rich and expansive look at how times have changed for the British Royal Family. I highly recommend this book.
