There are three people in this biography . . . guess who. Aside from that, the writing is very good, not smutty.

For those who enjoy reading about the Royal Family this new book presents another side of the story everyone thinks they know. Worth reading with an open mind for a broader understanding of this complex family and the issues they have dealt with over many years.

I tried reading this, but gave up about one third into the book. This is reported to be a book about Camilla, but the author spends a great deal of time psychoanalyzing Princess Diana and blaming her for the breakdown of her marriage to Charles.

Really interesting...not much has been formally written about Camilla before, and this is a fascinating look at her life. Understandably, there is a fair recap of information on Diana and Charles. While I have found Junor to be quite pro Charles in the past, she really tries to be objective, and the book is quite engaging. I had a hard time putting it down.
