From the cover: “It was billed as the love affair of the century. Instead the collapse of the Prince and Princess of Wales’s marriage sparked the biggest constitutional crisis since the Abdication.

Did Charles ever love Diana? Was she unfaithful to him? How much was Camilla Parker Bowles to blame for their shattered marriage?

In Diana v. Charles, James Whitaker, the world’s foremost authority on the royal family, paints the definitive portrait of the couple’s ill-starred relationship. With a series of exclusive revelations he charts its unhappy course from before the royal engagement right up to the present day. Diana v. Charles is filled with previously untold information gathered from James Whitaker’s twenty-five years of unrivalled royal reporting.

He reveals startling secrets of the unhappy childhood that caused eating disorders in Diana and her sister Sarah. He details the intimate nature of the Princess’s friendship with James Gilbey. He draws back the veil that has shrouded the House of Windsor’s ruthless dealings with outsiders. He examines the dirty-tricks department at Buckingham Palace, and the determined attempts by courtiers to freeze Diana out of public life. And he reveals the real truth behind those taped telephone calls.

While the contents of Diana v. Charles are the most explosive yet, James Whitaker writes sympathetically about the royal couple’s plight, and offers hope for the future of the British monarchy.”
