A furious Camilla slaps her stepson Prince William’s face as tensions over the future of the Monarchy reach boiling point. This is one of the shocking scenes from a controversial new BBC drama which portrays a Royal Family riven by ambition and bitter personal rivalry. Tory MP Andrew Bridgen last night condemned the BBC2 film, which is due to be screened on May 10. ‘It is unfortunate that the BBC would seek to promote this flight of fantasy, which many licence-fee payers will find distasteful and which I believe denigrates and undermines our Royal Family,’ he said. ‘I hope that the BBC will make clear that the production is pure fiction.’ King Charles III is based on a West End play of the same name and imagines Prince Charles’s accession to the throne. It charts the progre
“It’s about that pain of the dissolving of a fairytale, particularly for Diana. It starts with the filing of divorce papers and takes you up until her death.”

Feud season 2: Creator drops huge spoiler about Charles and Diana marriage split story RYAN MURPHY has revealed details about season two of Feud, which will chronicle Prince Charles and Princess Diana's messy split.

Prince Charles
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. Bullied as a youth by his overbearing father ("Philip was the original alpha male," Smith says), Charles spent his whole life seeking approval. Cowed by a sense of duty a...

Why Prince William and Kate's marriage is a sign of a modern monarchy Prince Harry's romance with Meghan Markle and Prince William's marriage to Kate would have been "inconceivable" if Prince Charles had not suffered trouble in his first marriage, according to the future King's biographer. Sally Beddell-Smith says the royal brothers have been given the freedom to enjoy happy relationships because of the difficulties faced by their parents. Her book, Prince Charles: The passions and paradoxes of an improbable life, tells how the heir to the throne wed Diana Spencer, 13 years his junior, because he was expected to choose a bride "without a history". She told HELLO!: "With the perspective of now 20 years time since her tragic death, I think people realise now that it was such a mism...
