“I wanted to read this book because I think Charles is so misunderstood. I dipped in and out of Jonathan Dimbleby’s biography. But I think what Gyles Brandreth does in his book is bring these stories right up to date. He also looks in detail at Camilla. I think there are so many misjudgments made on Camilla’s character and in his book he paints a picture of quite a fun woman who obviously captured Prince Charles’s heart many, many years ago. He goes into quite some detail about that meeting. For me the most important thing I took from the book is how fundamental Camilla is to Charles. He is a happier prince with Camilla in his life.” Read more...

This book paints an affectionate portrait of Prince Charles and Camilla and their relationship. Camilla suffered years of abuse after the whole saga of Diana’s misery was exposed. But, as Brandreth illustrates, she’s good company, good for Prince Charles and always has been. This is the happy (if not fairy-tale) ending of the story.
