This book is a cut above the mass of other writings on this subject for several reasons:
-It doesn't take sides: All three parties in this triangle are shown to have strengths and flaws.

-It keeps an historical perspective, including the relationship of Charles' great grandfather Edward VII and Camilla's great, great grandmother Mrs. Keppel as well as the other most famous royal scandal of Edward VIII and Mrs. Simpson, "the woman I love".

-It is well written as the author is a journalist in his own right and not just a disgruntled or exploitive former employee with a ghost writer.

-It is comprehensive, starting from the time of Camilla and Charles' first encounters, through Diana's death and finishing at the time of Camilla's rehabilitation just before their wedding.

Of all the players, I really knew the least about Camilla and so this book has given me a much more faceted picture of the entire situation.

I couldn't decide if the author liked the late Princess of Wales or not-this book started out interestingly enough, but about half way through it started to get somewhat 'draggy'. I'm sure the actual events were tedious at times-but it started to lose my interest. Having read it, I'm not sure who, if anyone is to blame for the horrible mess. Charles-was really being pressured to marry, and when he finally did couldn't stay faithful AT ALL. Diana-while very young, made some mistakes,too. Camilla-she should have kept her hands off of a married man. Sounds more like a soap opera than royalty!!!
