Item description for Camilla: An Intimate Portrait by Rebecca Tyrrel...
Rebecca Tyrrel paints a vivid picture of the life of Camilla Parker Bowles---jolly, horsey, laid-back Camilla, loyal friend, loving mother, whose "open" county marriage was no one's business until it emerged that the other man in it was the heir to the throne. To her critics, Camilla will always be a manipulative marriage breaker, the woman who took on the "People's Princess" and won. But if nothing else, she is constant---a dignified consort, who has endured years of public vilification and never answered back. With the help of friends and county contacts, royal reporters and palace insiders, Tyrrel goes behind the scenes of an extraordinary love story---a story of romance and tragedy, which has rocked the monarchy to its foundations and yet doggedly prevailed.

Reviews - What do customers think about Camilla: An Intimate Portrait?
Nauseating! Jan 6, 2006
Book was good. But I am so sick of hearing about these two. I don't know how Diana's mother could stand watching her daughter be used and abused by these two. I wish to God someone would have stepped in and stopped Diana from marrying him. Note that he had absolutely no other prospects for marriage at the time. All his girlfriends ran for their lives. The whole story is stomach turning!
A rocky road to finally legalize an awkward situation... May 21, 2005
I am not sure I have some respect for Camilla after reading that book, not to mention for Prince Charles either. What bothers me about those two is that they have been sooo dishonest towards Diana. They both manipulated her, thinking she was very innocent and naive, so they would have no problem continuing to see each other whenever they wanted. And it's not very noble to say the very least. But oops... Diana was very clever and the poor girl has been miserable in that "menage a trois".
If prince Charles was so much in love with Camilla 35 years ago, why on God's green earth din't he married her then?? Diana would have been spared all that suffering and misery. Because, let's face it, Diana was "used" to produce an heir to the throne and for that reason only. She was very much in love with Charles and he din't return that love. Instead he betrayed her. And that's why I have no respect for him and Camilla. I think there is no word to describe the way Charles and Camilla manipulated that poor Diana... maybe there is one...disgraceful!
