Prince Charles Won't Step Aside for William to Be King His biographer, Sally Bedell Smith, spent four years exhaustively researching the Prince of Wales. Sally Bedell Smith, dogged biographer and author of Prince Charles: The Passions and Paradoxes of an Improbable Life, out this week from Penguin Random House, has collected an exhaustive file of facts about the future king of England. Unlike his mother, Charles is not what you might call a beloved figure. And while Bedell Smith doesn't spare the touchy-feely, parapsychology loving, Dumbo-eared Charles, her portrait is also rich with sympathy, even affection.

In an interview ahead of the 20th anniversary of Diana’s death, Mr Hewitt laughed as he admitted he wanted to 'whisk her away' from the spotlight. He said: “It's a gradual period and then, you know, suddenly you can't get enough of each other or see each other as much as you want.” The comments come
Camilla 'blows-up' at Princess Mary Is there a royal feud brewing? They’re wives to two of the most powerful men in the world and now it’s been claimed that a feud may be brewing between Camilla and Princess Mary. “She was incredibly rude to Mary when they started talking and Camilla was very confrontational, snapping at her and putting her down in front of everyone,” a royal insider told New Idea. It’s believed that Camilla has always been jealous of Mary’s public persona and the fact that she’s still not in favour with the British public isn’t helping. “Camilla on the other hand, is Britain’s least favourite royal, with polls constantly indicating no-one wants her to become Queen,” the source said. News of their alleged feud comes after it was reported last year that Princess Ma
Prince Charles will dramatically and unilaterally declare Camilla Parker Bowles to be ‘Queen Camilla’ in the first 24 hours after the death of his mother, an informed source tells the Daily Beast. “They have it all worked out,” the source, who is close to a number of senior royals, told the Daily Beast. “When Charles goes before the Accession Council he will tell them his choice of regal name, and then he will authoritatively make it clear that his wife is to be known as Queen Camilla.” The source says that while the name of the King--almost certainly Charles III although George VII remains a possibility--will be widely announced on the airwaves and in a sequence of traditional proclamations at key locations around the country that day, the fact that Camilla—whose official title is the
