I had no idea Charles had to put up with such childish behaviour from Diana. I felt so sorry for them both.
I see Camilla in such a different light. She’s a very great asset to Charles and the royal family.
Top international reviews
Whilst some of the reading was insightful l cannot believe the level of justification for not just the way Diana was treated but the history of extra martial affairs. Chapters dedicated to her charity work which is a positive side but as a biography goes could not be more biased basically maligning Diana every available chance. It’s not a valences read but more like a hurrah for Camilla.
This book is cobbled from a huge bibliography that covers the last 14 per cent of the book.
The Duchess is a good lady who works hard.
It gives very actual information about Camilla and gets really boring half way through when it vears off onto other people who run charities that the Duchess is patron of.
Utterely sycophantic, Ms Junor, a patchwork of other authors writtings, churned out as a money maker .
Dont waste your money!
It shows her in her true light (caring, compassionate and family orientated). Maybe I am biased, as I have always felt Camilla has always been treated badly by the Press who could see no wrong in Diana Princess of Wales. I agree with other reviewers about too much focus being made on the different charities that Camilla is patron of, but on the whole it is an interesting read.
There was no mention of how terrible Diana was treated by most of the royal family at all. It was not even slightly touched on that the royal family caused Diana to have mental health issues. That’s even if the stories are true about her mental health.
Today’s announcement regarding prince harry wanting out of the royal family says a lot. Could it be he’s finally realised what the royals did to his mother and is trying to pay them back in some way.
The book for me is a shrine to camilla and far to much detail about people of no importance. Pages and pages about people I’ve personally never even heard of.
This book actually does Camilla no favours as a more truthful and unbiased version would have been more acceptable and believable.
Penny Junor yet again has shown her complete loyalty to Charles in this book, whilst painting Camilla whiter than white.
Pathetic effort, I'm afraid.
