Descripción

The number-one New York Times best-selling author of William and Kate and The Day Diana Died takes a compulsively listenable look into the relationships and rivalries of Queen Elizabeth, Camilla Parker Bowles, and Kate Middleton.
One has been famous longer than anyone on the planet - a wily stateswoman and an enduring symbol of a fading institution. One is the great-granddaughter of a king's mistress and a celebrated homewrecker who survived a firestorm of scorn to marry her lover and replace her archrival, a beloved 20th-century figure. One is a beautiful commoner, the university-educated daughter of a self-made entrepreneur, a fashion idol, and wife and mother to two future kings.
Master biographer Christopher Andersen takes listeners behind palace walls to examine the surprising similarities and stark differences among three remarkable women - Queen Elizabeth; Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall; and Princess Kate. Andersen reveals what transpires within the royal family away from the public's prying eyes; how the women actually feel about each other; how they differ as lovers, wives, and mothers; and how they are reshaping the landscape of the monarchy in this addictive listen that will shock even those who are spellbound by the royal palace.

    Anderson explores the personalities of the three woman (plus Diana) most connected to the throne in Britain today and identifies what he thinks drives each of them. This is a lot of material any one who follows the Royal Family at all prooobably already knows and is presented in a dishy way rather than a scholarly one. I was sometimes pretty unclear about how Anderson knew what he seemed to know, but that was more because of his presentation style (not always making his sources clear) rather than any real suspicion that he was making anything up. It was an entertaining read, and probably a decent introduction to these women. If you are looking for a really great biography of a member of the Royal Family, I cannot recommend highly enough [[Sally Bedell Smith]]'s [Elizabeth the Queen]. It's very readable and paints a much fuller (and at least apparently better researched) portrait of Elizabeth II than Anderson can here.

    I found this book to be written on a National Enquirer level. It was full of gossip, unnamed "sources" and out and out mistakes. For example, in talking about Diana's alleged suicide attempt while pregnant with William,the author claims she was Charles' wife of two years when in fact their first anniversary came a month after William was born. Similarly,on page 42 he claims a napkin used in serving the Queen's breakfast is mongrammed EIIR which according to him is Elizabeth II Regent when in fact it is Elizabeth II Regina (Regent means an adult serving as monarch for an underage heir, while Regina means Queen.) These were just two of the many little "slips" he made throughout the book and I felt it indicated a lack of careful reading and/or research into his facts. The first chapter I also found to be bizaare I found it hard to finish.

    A fast, gossipy read. While some of it feels like pure conjecture (i.e., the first chapter about what might happen when Queen Elizabeth dies, right down to personal conversations), the rest trips along like a 300-page behind-the-scenes look at the politics and rivalries among the current crop of British royals. The perfect book for a lazy summer afternoon.
