From the Back Cover:

To some the Prince of Wales is the cold, uncaring product of his extraordinary upbringing, responsible for the unhappiness of an innocent girl. To others he is the victim of a tabloid press, which has unfairly vilified him and his attempt to do some good in the world.

'Charles: Victim or Villain?' challenges the received wisdom surrounding his personal life, and provides bold new insights into the man.

Charles, Prince of Wales, has long been the subject of intense scrutiny and speculation. Everyone assumes that they know the story of the Prince’s life, and the story of his failed marriage to Diana. Diana herself told the world in no uncertain terms about her unhappiness within the British Royal Family, and left no one in any doubt as to whom she held responsible. But Diana’s version was only part of the story.

Penny Junor’s new biography, 'Charles: Victim or Villain?' reveals the startling complexities and contradictions of a man born to a position of unique privilege. On the occasion of the Prince’s fiftieth birthday, it provides a fresh perspective and entirely revolutionises the way we think about Charles, his marriage and his mistress.

Drawing on the memories, experiences and observations of those closest to the Prince, the Princess and Camilla – some of whom have never spoken before – Penny Junor is in an unrivalled position to explode and explain the popular myths. Her analysis of the Prince’s marriage to Diana, a vulnerable but difficult young woman, and his relationship with Camilla, earthy and independent, results in a provocative new portrait of the man who will be King.
