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.

Enjoyable but not "juicy"
I was in the mood for something gossipy, so I picked this up. I should have known that everything that could be said about Charles and Camilla has already been said. She made better copy as a Mistress than she does as a wife. There is a lot about the Diana days here (way too much). And there is a fairly long section about the infidelities of several monarchs of old...interesting information but not well integrated within this narrative.
The best part of this listen was the narrator, who was pitch perfect. Although the book has no new information, it is fairly well written so the narrator was able to make it flow.
Nothing New and Yet Still Sad
