Blackwell North Amer What happens behind the walls of Buckingham Palace that causes every marriage in the British royal family to fall apart? Royal insider Lady Colin Campbell, who shattered the world's "perfect Diana" fantasy with her ground-breaking book Diana in Private, reveals at last the shocking secrets that have kept Queen Elizabeth and her family from living happily ever after. The public scandals of the "annus horribilis" were merely the surface of the Windsor turmoil: Now, the author whose book rocketed first onto bestseller lists, launched the wave of "Dianamania" and changed forever the way we look at royals, delivers the definitive account of the famous family whose hidden agendas continue to wreak havoc on their relationships today. With the incisiveness, sympathy, and candor for which she is known, Lady Colin Campbell unveils the explosive truth about the private lives of the royals, including such revelations as which royal children bear uncanny resemblances to men other than their fathers; the missing - previously censored - minutes of the "Squidgy" tape; the late-blooming prince whose sexual "kick-start" was more or less arranged by the Queen; the day Charles came home early - much to Diana's dismay; and Fergie's separation: Was her hand forced by another royal? Never before has a member of the royal circle laid bare the intimate details of all the Windsor intrigues, past and present. Lady Colin Campbell's unrivaled understanding and access provide an in-depth portrait truer, more vivid, more comprehensive, and more exciting than any to date.
