In the first in-depth biography of Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall--the infamous other woman who made the marriage of Britain's Prince Charles and Princess Diana "a bit crowded"--esteemed royal biographer Penny Junor tells the unlikely and extraordinary story of the woman reviled as a pariah who, thanks to numerous twists of fate, became the popular princess consort. Few know the Windsor family as well as veteran royal biographer and journalist Penny Junor. In The Duchess, 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 were 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. Junor 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 central 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 reinvigorated Charles, allowing him to finally become comfortable as the heir to the British throne.… (lisätietoja)

I found this book regarding the long-awaited wife of Prince Charles of England, to be boring and filled with titles, unimportant details, and a long-winded story of the affair of Camilla Parker Bowles and Price Charles while they were both married. ( )

The first nine index entries in order for Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall and Rothsesay:

-- friendly/warm personality
-- as strong character
-- groundedness of
-- compassion of
-- family as paramount for
-- advocate for women
-- as emotional support for Charles
-- passion for books and literacy
-- charities supported by

You get the idea? This is clearly a "Pro-Camilla" work. But admittedly, this is well-done, clearly written, and pretty convincing. ( )

An intriguing look into Camilla's life, and her relationship with Prince Charles. The book didn't always flow, and oftentimes the transitions were awkward. In other places, some of the information seemed to be forced, as though the author had added it as an afterthought.

Overall, I felt it was a very fair story about Charles, Camilla, and Diana. It also touched on the work all three have done. ( )

This was surprisingly interesting. It went over a lot of familiar ground, and was very supportive of the Duchess, but kept my interest and didn't seem too fawning or, despite the subtitle, too malicious. ( )
