Publisher's Summary

A compelling biography of Camilla, Queen Consort, that reveals how she transformed her role and established herself as one of the key members of the royal family.

For many years, Camilla was portrayed in a poor light, blamed by the public for the break-up of the marriage between Prince Charles and Lady Diana. Initially, the Queen refused to see or speak to her, but, after the death of Prince Philip, the Duchess became one of the Queen's closest companions. Her confidence in Camilla and the transformation she saw in Prince Charles since their wedding resulted in her choosing the first day of her Platinum Jubilee year to tell the world that she wanted Camilla to be Queen Consort not the demeaning Princess Consort suggested in 2005.

Angela Levin uncovers Camilla’s rocky journey to be accepted by the royal family and how she coped with the brutal portrayal of her in Netflix's The Crown. The public have witnessed her tremendous contribution to help those in need, especially during Covid. Levin has talked to many of the Duchess’s long-term friends, her staff and executives from the numerous charities of which Camilla is patron. She reveals why Camilla concentrates on previously taboo subjects, such as domestic violence and rape. Most of all, Levin tells the story of how Camilla has changed from a fun-loving young woman to one of the senior royals’ hardest workers. She has retained her mischievous sense of humour, becoming a role model for older women and an inspiration for younger ones.

Camilla is both an extraordinary love story and a fascinating portrait of an increasingly confident Queen Consort. It is an essential listen for anyone wanting a greater insight into the royal family.

This is a thoroughly good read

I really enjoyed this book about Camilla queen consort. It explains an awful lot about her life and the sort of person she is. Very very well written a thoroughly good read.

Pro Camilla

It’s good to read about Camilla’s experience of well documented events, however; the book would have been a 5 star if it wasn’t so obviously biased in Camilla’s favour. The book makes an unnecessary point of portraying Diana, Harry and Meghan in a negative light which was really distasteful. OK read overall.

Fantastic listen

I’ve listened to a few biographies of Camilla but must admit this was my favourite, well researched, well read and well presented. Actually disappointed it’s finished.
Also impressed that the last chapter altered slightly to incorporate the passing of Her Majesty the Queen (especially as book was published around the time of her passing).

A good book to read

I always believed that Diana was wrong and I still do as a young woman she was, but I think there has to be a time that you have to put a line in the sand and say king. Charles deserves to be happy and Camilla makes him happy for all the wrong, there should be some right and I think it’s time to allow her to be Queen, Camilla passed is past and it shows there happy and she seems very nice 😊 enjoyed this book

Good book but nothing new

There is so much in general press now it’s very hard to have anything new in a book like this
However it’s a decent book and very well read

Waste of money!

Complete waste of money. Repetitive dribble. I have no fixed opinion of Camilla but this author should have had saint in the title. The monarch is not monarch of England but the United Kingdom! Think it was written for the American market. I would not have given it any stars but you have to to proceed.

Passive Aggressive and Bias

Was interested to know more about Camilla and her life. Listened to about 3 mins and had to stop. Extremely passive aggressive. Undertones of criticism against Diana from the get go does not make you want to read or listen further.
Would like a refund !
