Summary
  • Biographer "Christopher Andersen takes readers behind palace walls to examine the surprising similarities and stark differences among three remarkable women--Queen Elizabeth; Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall; and Princess Kate."--Book jacket
  • Andersen takes readers behind palace walls to examine the surprising similarities and stark differences among three remarkable women: Queen Elizabeth; Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall; and Princess Kate. One is a wily stateswoman and an enduring symbol of a fading institution. One is a celebrated homewrecker who survived a firestorm of scorn to marry her lover and replace a beloved twentieth-century figure. One is a beautiful commoner, fashion idol, and wife and mother to two future kings. Learn how the women actually feel about each other, and see how they are reshaping the British monarchy
