Summary
"The first in-depth biography of Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, and her remarkable transformation from pariah to popular Princess Consort. Few know the Windsor family as well as veteran royal biographer and journalist Penny Junor. In [this book], she casts her insightful, sensitive eye on the intriguing, once widely despised, and little-known Camilla Parker Bowles, revealing in full, for the first time, the remarkable rise of a woman who was the most notorious mistress in the world. As Camilla's marriage to Charles approached in 2005, the British public was upset at the prospect that this woman, universally reviled for wrecking the royal marriage, would one day become Queen. Sensitive to public opinion, the Palace announced that this would never happen; when Charles eventually acceded to the throne, Camilla would be known as the Princess Consort. Yet a decade later, British public sentiment had changed, with a majority believing that Camilla should become Queen. Junot argues that although Camilla played a central role in the darkest days of the modern monarchy--Charles and Diana's acrimonious and scandalous split--she also played a crucial role in restoring the Royal Family's reputation, especially that of Prince Charles. A woman with no ambition to be a princess, a duchess, or a queen, Camilla simply wanted to be with, and support, the man who has always been the love of her life. Junor contends that their marriage has allowed Charles finally to become comfortable as the heir to the British throne."--Dust jacket
