Few individuals have had as profound an effect upon the British monarchy as Camilla Parker Bowles. The mere mention of her name elicits strong opinions. To some, she is a person of immense honor and dignity, a loyal consort who has risen above the jibes and accusations that have been directed at her. To others, she is a destroyer, whose position as the third member of a royal marriage led to the break-up of Charles and Diana, and to the tragic events that followed. The truth, as this book reveals, lies somewhere in between. Charles and Camilla have so far remained silent, keeping the details of their abiding relationship a secret. Caroline Graham, who has spoken to sources close to the couple, here reveals a story of grand passion, cynical betrayal, and sexual subterfuge. Caroline Graham is highly regarded as a royal commentator. Now living in America, she is the U.S. correspondent for the Mail on Sunday.
